I've always wondered what was over on the cliffs that you look out at when you swim at Ocean Beach. Little did I know it's a whole community - protected land - and you can go explore!
We all bundled in the car the next afternoon and went for a drive. It's only about 1 km away from Denmark across the water but the drive takes you close to forty five minutes!
What a beautiful beach though - Anvil Beach.
I'd love to go back in summer for a swim. There's natural rock pools and the waves were crashing and fizzing over the rocks. It would be great for snorkelling I'm sure. A really love afternoon exploring a new part of the this cape!

The peaceful view from our house for the long weekend. So many birds to wake up and listen to!

A beautiful (and freezing!) first afternoon down in Denmark at Ocean Beach. Greeted with a beautiful rainbow we watched the waves come in and walked along the moonscape-like sandbar. It was spitting with rain here and there and the beach was lined with blue bottles!

 A beautiful weekend away to close off Autumn down in Augusta. We travelled down via the hills - Pinjarra, Wellington, Harvey, Nannup, Donnybrook .. so lovely seeing the trees losing their leaves and green paddocks. We stopped for some roadside citrus and took our time moseying down to Augusta. Lovely house right near the inlet and a warm fireside meal at the pub on our first night.

 Lovely weather meant we got to check out the lighthouse, waterwheel and the local coastline. Picky lunches and walks along the river into town.

We made our way back to Dunsborough through Jewel Cave and the Boranup Forest. Just so delightful to be out of Perth, break up the routine of late term school and enjoy some quiet time together.
