Week 6 Bibbulmin Trek: Day 2

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Day 2
Our first stop of the day, as we again walk past grazing kangaroos on the heathland, is Gap Beach and Peaceful Bay. The Gap is a beach with nice clean white sand and rocky areas, more ideal for just a cool off and good for fishing, swimming and surfing is not a good idea at this beach! This is because getting stuck on the beach is not so hard, so check the tides before venturing onto the beaches as high tide will swallow some beaches entirely! There are plenty of warning signs around the Bay
The coastline around Peaceful Bay consists of great beaches, lime stone cliffs, rocky outcrops and big boulders. There is very short video to give you the feel for how peaceful the bay is at

Located between Parry's Beach and Peaceful Bay is the magnificent Quarram Nature Reserve with its stunning white sandy beaches and limestone cliffs.
We trekked our way through the magnificent scenery, which was a tough walk even for seasoned trekkers and on to Boat Harbor. The Bibbulmun Track passes through the forest and dunes past the distant bay at Boat Harbor. The channel which leads to the beach offers great views of the Southern Ocean. The land alters quite dramatically in this area with heath covered hills and rocky terrain, with only a few tall trees. If you are lucky you maybe treated to the sight of a whale out in the bay
Parry Inlet is located at the western end of the park just north of Parry Beach. From the lookout you can see the forested hills set against the wind blown waters.
We finish this days trek passing more white sanded beaches of Williams Bay National Park, which covers 1734 hectares( 4284ac 35166ft²) and includes Greens Pool and the Elephant Rocks. The granite boulders create a natural reef which protects Greens Pool from the Great Southern Ocean, and is a safe swimming beach for children (under supervision)
Tonight we stay at the Williams Bay campsite for the night. I am glad to see the Campsite and Moonglowsnana and I lose no time setting up the tent, And treating water for coffee and dinner tonight, a reconstituted roo meat and vegetable soup, with quinoa added..

    emoticon I can finally say that I have seen White Sand!! I have to admit I am tempted to take a small bottle of it home to show everyone. It would look nice sitting on the Shelf next to a bottle of our Oklahoma Red Dirt, LOL!! But don't worry, I resisted the temptation!! You can check my pockets if you want to.
