Great Mid West

From Perth it was onto the small fishing town of Lancelin where we caught up with traveling friends Rob and Rhonda for a little sand boarding (points off for the dismount) and a few sundowners.

North to Cervantes and into Nambung National Park to see the Pinnacles, ancient rock formations. These incredible limestone spiers, several metres tall rise eerily out of the sand in the middle of nowhere...

Even the locals were queing up!

On our way to Kalbarri we stopped to admire the Pink Lake at Port Gregory.

Continuing on past several spectacular coastal cliffs we arrived happy to settle for three days and soak it all in.

One afternoon mother nature, never ceasing to amaze, displayed her power with 40 knot winds...

Before leaving town we had to hit Kalbarri National Park, a popular spot with good reason. Natures Window, a natural arch carved from red rock, perfectly frames the upstream view of Murchison River gorge running some 80 kilometres.. not a bad view for our picnic lunch.

Next stop we are really looking forward to; the coral coast!

Loving the multimedia. Greg always used to have problems thinking of gifts for Jen. A kyak is so obvious...

Ha ha ha Max! Good that now we have a new generation, we don't have the problem of gift-giving for the older one. How come Jen didn't surf the sand?

by Lesley Pettigrew

Thanks guys, Jen will be paddling for Australia in no time! Hence she's not allowed to sandboard :)
