Day trip to Augusta

13 04 2017

We went for a drive down to Augusta and Cape Leeuwin on Monday, just ‘cos it was a GORGEOUS day and we could. Drove down Caves Rd, popping into Gracetown and stopping at Lefthanders car park (there are tiny people with surfboards on the beach in the photo, with other surfers in the Indian Ocean that you probably can’t see), then on into the magical cathedral-like Boranup Forest full of towering karri trees (note the size of the vehicle in relation to the trees). We stopped for lunch in Augusta, then went on to the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse precinct, where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet (I’m not sure if this was the setting for the novel ‘The light between two oceans’, but it’s close enough). Back home via Margaret River (the town is just a Subiaco/Claremont clone these days) and Cowaramup, where the cow sculptures have overtaken the town!
