Arrival at "Lands End"!

Todays tour took us via surfers' beaches, wine growing areas to Cape Leewin, where the Indian and Southern Oceans meet - Australia's most South West point.

First stop of the day was at Busselton to have a short look at the longest jetty of the Southern hemisphere. Unfortunately the day was a bit cloudy and therefore not allowing us to see the different blue colours in the ocean that this area is known for.

Following Caves Road we arrived in Yallingup in the Cape Naturaliste National Park; A surfers' paradise with white beaches and king waves. We also tried to capture one of these surfers as ordered by some friends in England, but unfortunately they were not older than 14 and we did not want to business of the Excel Night Club in Stowmarket. On top of that we met Bob the builder who helped us getting Old Bob back running after the battery went flat. Help however took a bit longer than expected, as Bob was running around the building site where he was pretending to work, chasing for his mate who must have hidden himself in the half finished loft, potentially sleeping.

Next stop on the list was Canal Rocks, where the waves crash to create a fancy formation of rocks and a "splashy" spectacle.

Driving further south we passed through Margaret River wine region, where loads of small and mid size wineries aline themselves around the country side.

We ended the day in Cape Leewin - Australia's most South West point. Rather by mistake we took a scenic but unsealed dirt road that took us via several amazing lookouts to the cape itself. The cape is a small peninsula mediating an impressive land's end feeling, while still being a beautiful spot with the only sign of civilisation being a light house.
