|Lights Beach, just toooooo cold for a swim :o(|
|Elephant Rocks, you count the elephants anywhere between 3 and 8 wins a prize.|
|Greens Pool, a very sheltered and picturesque bay.|
|This is the Biggest Cone in WA - I just had to have one|
|I think this guy had "head freeze" from eating his ice cream too fast.|
In Walpole we stayed at the Rest Point Caravan Park on the Nornalup Inlet and went touring from here. The lady at the Walpole information Centre was most helpful and suggested a drive taking in the Giant Tingle Tree, Circular Pool, Swarbrick Art sculptures and valley of the Giants which we did over 2 days.
This is really tall timber country and the tingle trees are only found in this area.
|One very big tingle tree|
|Circular Pool, you'll have to imagine the foam moving in a circular motion.|
Swarbrick Art loop - by opening the door we "Discover the diversity of people's relationships with the wilderness area through time."
|Wilderness door of perception|
|Wilderness wall of perception, Hels stood here for ages!!|
|No perception here, I'm an angel!!|
|I need to dust before we go.|
At the Valley of the Giants we decided to take the Empire Walk, which is around the base of the tingle trees rather than the tree top walk. We managed to join in on the guided tour which was most informative and gave us a better perspective of the tingle tree.
|Got to drive the EK through the tingle tree, he he.|
|The guide telling us about "Grandma Tingle" tree in background.|
|The walk is well planned with walkways and signs to explain the different aspects of the tingle tree.|
After the Valley of the Giants it was back to the coast and visited Peaceful bay, a small fishing village. Infact this was a very tidy shack area with what I would consider a real fisherman's paradise. From Peaceful Bay travelled back towards Walpole stopping at another bay, (the last for a while) Conspicuous Cliffs.
