Twighlight beach highlight

3rd October

Yesterday we did the circular route drive, 40 kms long including spectacular beach and coastal scenery. Also on this scenic drive we saw Wind Farms, Observatory Point and Twilight Cove.

At 10 mile beach we had to climb down steps made from old tyres. This is also known as a free beach so nude sunbathing and swimming is allowed. The beach was very quite this morning.

Further on at 9 mile beach we could see lime tubes. At observatory road lookout located on Twilight Beach Road, this is where in 1792, the two French Frigates, the L'Esperance and the Recherche sheltered from a storm, before going on to explore the region.

The Esperance Bay Historical Society has placed a memorial plaque at the top of the point.

Nearly lunch time, it is very hot now with a warm breeze. The temperature is suppose to be hitting 37 a big contrast to what we have been experiencing. Heading back to the park hoping to find a cool spot for the afternoon. Today has been a good work out for our legs and hearts.
