I’ve Become That Girl ….

…the one who trades her pj bottoms for tights, throws a jumper over her pj top & walks barefoot to the beach. Will miss my beach walks.

I finally left Albany after a coffee & cake & headed for the Porongurups. Someone (me) thought it was a brilliant idea to hike The Nancy Peak circuit (the idea been I had done Castle Rock years ago ild try something else) 5.5km of pain! I’m not sure my feet will ever recover from all the rocks I’ve walked over, my ankles all the odd angles I put them at, my legs may never carry my uphill again, the rest of me is gonna hurt but it’s fine it’s a bit like sitting in an ice bath outside at the moment. And I’m sure I hit the summit at least three times, everytime I thought this is it ild find another incline & rock to climb. However I did it with a smile on my face at the end when the endorphins kicked in (and I was on flat ground).

Shorts & Lilly White Legs

The suns out!!! I’ve got one tshirt on as opposed to two and a jumper.

After I little bit of a lazy start I hit the road out of town to Two Peoples Bay. I stopped off at the visitors centre where I ended up walking one of the trails (no hat, no camera, no water) lucky it was only a couple kilometres. But to my surprise I managed to see six enamel orchids & a leopard? Sun orchid so worth it (plus I didn’t want my body to get too used to flat ground just yet).

Next stop … the whole purpose of today’s drive … Little Beach. WOW just love the colour of the water, bit too much wave action for me to run back up & put my bathers on but after the initial shock of the cool water I was happy to paddle.

I detoured back to town via The Old Marron Farm for lunch, followed by Nanarup Beach, Ledge Beach, Ledge Point & Gull Rock.

Now to relax before my afternoon walk on the beach.
