    Denmark (beaches)

    October 15, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    The promised sunshine finally arrived on Saturday so we loaded up with beach supplies and drove 20 minutes to William Bay National Park. First we checked out Elephant Rocks and the kids had a splash in the waves before we headed around the corner and found a perfect spot on the white sand at Greens Pool. The clear water is protected from the surf by a natural rock wall creating a huge, calm pool for swimming and snorkelling. We spent the day enjoying the sunshine - swimming (even if the water was really cold!), snorkelling (only Roy was tempted) and sand castle construction filled out a very pleasant day!
    It didn't take much to convince the kids to repeat the same exercise on Sunday - what a gorgeous spot!

    Green Pools and Elephant Rocks

    May 2, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    Being away from any lights meant we had great views of the stars again. The clear night also meant it was a cold one but warmed up once the sun rose. This was beautiful to watch at the beach with the mist rising. After having a look around historical Denmark we spent most of the day at Green Pools, like a natural sheltered swimming area that had incredibly clear water which we both enjoyed a swim in. We met Bob in the car park, a motorcycle tourer from Las Vegas, who we had a really long natter with about bikes and touring having been to many similar places as him. While on the beach Lou got talking to a lady who had just collected a dead, blue ringed octopus, in her mask that was in the shallow water. We were told, while inspecting it closely, that it would kill you if you touched it! A little research later and we now know that it is Australia's most deadly creature with the fully grown adult (golf ball size) secretions able to kill 26 humans. They do bite but can be unnoticed and will paralyse you. Unfortunately there is no anti-venom and people die the same day. We don't know the fate of the woman who took it away in her googles to show Tourist Information!
    A walk on the rocks took us around the bay to the huge boulders that actually look like massive elephants bathing in the sea. The evening was spent at another beachside campground set in trees (the warning signs would suggest that deadly snakes like it here too!)

    William Bay np

    February 25, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    Vanaf een mooie camping aan de zee rijden we verder richting Denmark, inmiddels zijn we weer enigszins bevolkte gebieden. We hebben een kleine detour omdat delen van de highway afgesloten zijn, ze sturen je hier rustig 100km om. Gelukkig mogen we met de 4x4 wel door een overstroomde weg, anders hadden we nog meer extra kilometers moeten maken.

    In William bay zwemmen we bij de green pools en de elephant rocks, heerlijke plekken. Later op de dag doem we nog een 'treetop walk' bovenin hele hoge bomen. Best leuk maar helaas niet de 21$ waard.

    Greens Pool

    January 7 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Auf dem Weg zum Greens Pool hielt Luke plötzlich an, stieg aus und machte Selfies mit Kühen im Hintergrund und eine Hundemaske im Gesicht. So verrückt haha. :D

    Am Greens Pool angekommen, war das Wetter noch genauso schlecht wie zu Beginn des Tages. Das war sehr sehr schade. Trotzdem fand ich, dass das Wasser sehr blau und klar aussah. Der Greens Pool ist ein Strand, bei dem der Ozean wie in einem Pool gefangen ist, da die Wellen von kreisförmig aufgestellten Felsen abgefangen werden.

    Achso, ich habe am Parkplatz übrigens eine Schlange gesehen, die ihren Kumpel wohl zum Fressen gern hatte. :D

    Elefant Rocks

    January 7 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Direkt neben dem Greens Pool lagen die Elefant Rocks. Das sind riesige Felsen, bei denen einer aussah wie ein Elefant. Wir kletterten also über Steine und Felsen, um vom Strand zu den Rocks zu kommen. Anschließend bin ich mit Emily und Janina zum Strand an den Felsen gelaufen (durch eine Felsspalte. Und immer, wenn eine Welle kam, wurde die Spalte geflutet. Doof nur, wenn man Sneaker trägt haha).

    Es war einfach wunderschön dort !!!

    Greens Pool

    December 23, 2017 in Australia ⋅

    In the morning before we leave for Albany I get on a push bike and ride around Denmark while Dan, Kate and Mick paddle up the river in kayaks.
    On the way to Albany today we visit Greens Pool which is a lovely sheltered shoreline with lots of little beaches. It is a popular family beach in the summer
