Pinnacles, Nambung NP

I'm quite a bit behind with my posts so will bring events up to date.  We left Jurien Bay and headed through Perth to Boddington to stay with Tony for a couple of nights before flying to Adelaide for the wedding of Luke and Rhiannon.

On the way south stopped in to check out the Pinnacles in Nambung National Park.  The limestone structures, some standing as high as 5 metres, were formed about 25,000 years ago, after the sea receded and left deposits of sea shells. Over time, coastal winds (and there is plenty of wind in WA!) removed the surrounding sand, leaving the pillars exposed to the elements. After living in the Territory the structures looked much like termite mounds ........ I'll let you decide!!!

"Geoff that looks like a .........."

Hels was in her element finding all sorts of shapes but this one she had to hug "Pluto"

After spending a few hours viewing the Pinnacles we decided to stay at Moore River Bridge (approx. 33km North of Yanchep National Park turn off) free camp, and head off early the next morning through Perth to Tony's at Boddington.

On our way through Perth we made a surprise visit to say g'day to Alex and Jarrod.  As it was still morning we caught Alex still in her PJs but we did manage to get a coffee before heading off again. It was great to spend time with them - a quick call in turned out to be a few hours!

"Jenny" the Navman directed us through Perth with out any hassles, travelling south to Boddington where we spent 3 nights at Leanne and Tony's.  Thoroughly enjoyed the country hospitality then it was back to Perth and jump onto a jet plane for Adelaide.  Stayed @ Discovery Holiday Park which was close to where we had to take the van for new brakes to be fitted and a service.  We were also able to store van there for our Adelaide visit.
