Isn’t this just a lovely pathway inviting you to keep on walking down it? This is part of an old, old railway line that used to travel between Albany and Denmark, Western Australia around 80-100 years ago. Jason and I got cabin fever today and went for a drive. I used to ride my horse down this road about 30 years ago and just to the right of this photo is the Wilsons Inlet where I used to let my horse go for a swim and a sand bath.
These are the beautiful emblem bird of Western Australia, the Black Swan. This photo was taken at a little beach called Springdale Beach near Denmark Western Australia.
Here are some Cormorants or “Shags” as we used to call them, drying off on some very old mooring posts. I think it was once a makeshift jetty of sorts before nature overtook it.
After our little photo journey, we stopped into Denmark and had some lunch at a place called Ravens on the corner of the crossroads near the bridge coming into the town. We had a most delightful lunch of a huge bowl each of a vegetarian laksa that was full of lovely coconut milk and chilli and all those crunchy veg and sprouts and rice noodles. Yum! They also make some of the best coffee around, roasting the beans onsite. Then it was back to Albany and home.
