5 months ago this area suffered devastating fires along the coast. We couldn’t believe the number of homes still standing amongst the burnt trees along the sand dunes. It must have been a terrifying experience for the local residents, and very unsettling to be still living in among the destruction.

Further along the coast the forest is regenerating and there is green starting to appear on the forest floor, and some trees seem to be surviving eventhough they are severely burnt.

We continued down the coast today to Augusta and the lighthouse at Cape Leeuwin, and saw where the Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean. A great day out 🙂
