|Benji poses for the obligatory Lighthouse snap. The other two kids are too grumpy to smile, after we find out that the lighthouse is closed for repairs for the whole of May, so we can walk around it, but not inside as promised. Bummer.|
Augusta wind (a gust of wind...)
In our Augusta caravan park we are surrounded by ducks, and we take to the place like ducks to water ourselves. Situated right on the banks of the Blackwood River, we watch the sun rise each morning over the water as its many inhabitants awake to greet us - fish, of all sizes, crabs, and even dolphins. The Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse that sits at the point where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet is a must see, so we make sure to see it twice - by day AND by night. And with the weather somewhat rainy, we find ourselves also enjoying some quality down-time, caravan style: catching rainwater to drink, fishing off the pier in the wet, and mixing new paints on the grass.
