Redgate Beach

This is one of the many beautiful beaches in the Cape to Cape area.  Just offshore is the wreck of the Georgette ( where Grace Bussell rescued the people on board by riding out in the surf). Apparently the wreck can be seen at certain times of the year – probably the end of winter when the sand has been washed away).

The red on the rocks is a lichen that is common on the granite rocks from Dunsborough to Cape Leeuwin. It contrasts beautifully with the white sand and blue sea and sky.

Redgate Beach was a welcome sight at the end of a 10km walk from Prevelly (at the mouth of the Margaret River) along the Cape to Cape Trail!  However there is a sealed road to the beach, and this is one of the beaches with easy access.

Update: I have reprocessed the image according to Mark’s suggestion and my response. This is the reprocessed image.
