D’Estrees stroll

I’m recovering today after our planned 3-4 hour walk along D’Estrees Bay turned into an 8-hour marathon.

But what a glorious day – calm weather, blue seas, humpback whales, crazy rock formations, peregrine falcons and plenty of other birds, no weeds, and, quite scarily, far too many species of plants flowering (e.g. Correa, Leucopogon, Scaevola, Goodenia, Olearia, a yellow daisy) at the start of winter.
