I went with a friend for a walk along a section of the Cape to Cape Trail this morning. We parked one car at the Margaret River Rivermouth car park, and then drove back to the Ellenbrook homestead. This way we don’t have to backtrack. This was a 12.5 km walk. Instead of following the track which goes inland from Ellenbrook to the Boodjidup river mouth, we walked along the rocks and beach.
At the point where the track rejoins the beach you get this view. The sand is pure white and very fine. Most of the sand beaches along the Cape to Cape region are a yellowy/grey sand but this section is dazzling. The limestone formation on the left is called Joey’s nose. I am not sure who Joey was but he must have had a good sense of smell.
At this point we still had to walk about 2km past the headland you can see in the distance. It was a very pleasant walk. The second image is a slightly different view of the same stretch of beach.
