Twilight Cove

Friday August 5th

Storm over Twilight Cove
Most of the morning was spent driving the 30 km into Twilight Cove along a narrow track..very stoney at times and quite good at others. We spent the afternoon walking on the white sands of the beach. Stormy skies and rainbows added to the beauty of the Cove which is enclosed by the Baxter Cliffs. Late in the afternoon a pod of whales was discovered. There were 4 cows and 4 calves quite close to the beach. We spent ages watching them floating amongst the times showing their fins and noses. What a privilege to be so close to these wonderful creatures in the wild. They were only metres from the sand and gave us a great view of their afternoon activity.

  1. June, I am so jealous that you got to see the whales so closely. I had to go on a boat trip in Perth to see them and then spent the whole trip throwing up. To this day I still haven't seen a whale swimming in the ocean and it is a real dream of my to experience that. I hope Mum and Dad got lots of photos!! Love Sal P.S. It sounds like the scenery you are experiencing is incredible, the flowers sound remarkable and the green grass????
