Jurien

Along the Indian Ocean Drive south of Jurien, there is a beautiful valley that is home to millions of grass trees (blackboy plants). I don't think the photos do it justice but the conditions must have been just right for so many plants to flourish in the one spot.

Beautiful beaches near the jetty at Jurien
That's Kyle diving off the pontoon.
Casey & I jumped off the jetty instead which wasn't as far out.
We spent quite a bit of time watching the sky divers jump from the planes and land on the beach. One day, that will be me doing the jumping !

A very rare sight - my dad at the beach !
Overcast but a great day for a walk on the beach
A magnificent sea lion at Sandy Cape - a great camping spot just north of Jurien

stitches


The doctor was concerned about a tiny patch of dry skin on my forehead so now I have a wound about an inch long and 9 stitches instead !! Better to be safe than sorry, I'm told.
