Day 12 – Lucky Bay

Posted from Cape Le Grand, Western Australia, Australia.

We had ummed and ahhhed over whether to leave Esperance and try our luck at Lucky bay.  In the end we decided to give it a go … and that will remain one of the more ridiculous decisions that we’ve ever made.

Posted from Castletown, Western Australia, Australia.


The day started out just as it had ended with drizzly rain and freezing cold.  Overnight, fog had also been added to the mix.
