Cosy Corner and the Albany coastMay 1, 2017 in Australia
Managed to see the women's downhill racing live from Lourdes online last night, the men's race started too late unfortunately.
After a trip for supplies near the Dog Rock (picture below) we explored the Torndirrup National Park to the South West of Albany. The coast is very rugged lined with granite cliffs and scrub land but with white squeaky sand (it really does when you walk on it!) and stunning turquoise water. Features included the Gap and Bridge where the swell crashed into the inlet, Jimmy Newhills harbour, Salmon Holes, Frenchman Bay and Vancouver Peninsular where we had a long walk on the beach, got accosted by a mahoosive friendly dog and visited a bird hide - sadly the birds were mostly hiding.
After a drive West along the coast, we are staying at the Cosy Corner beach - a free camp area in the trees next to the sea. Very different to the 'luxury' of the last two nights, no wifi or spa but is tranquil and stunning scenery .Read more
