As you know we’ve come to Australia to house sit for six weeks but Joseph (our host) has also built several weeks into our schedule for touring. This week he drove us north along the beautiful Coral Coast to Jurien Bay.
One of the highlights included walking through pinnacles in Namburg National Park. They were completely different from the pinnacles in California which were tall spires jutting from mountains. Australia’s pinnacles are located in the desert and surrounded with yellow sand. It felt like we were on the moon.
Joseph has a friend who runs a kangaroo rescue sanctuary and he invited us for a visit. Stephen and I both had the opportunity to feed the kangaroos and I even got within arms length of a mama with her joey peeking from the pouch. It was amazing!!
We hugged the coast on our drive north and stopped at a restaurant to enjoy a lobster lunch. The deck overlooked the bay where the lobster had been recently plucked. You can see fishing boats anchored just offshore bobbing up and down with the surf. I never tire of an ocean view and this one was especially nice with the puffy clouds against the blue backdrop.
We are thrilled to experience all this natural beauty in such an extraordinary country. Every night we go to bed exhausted but ready to explore again the next day.
