“Sitting in the Small Lagoon I Got to Watch the Sunset as the Surfers CameIn”
We camped at Yallingup for four nights. It was an awesome beach and it had some great safe little rock pools. Quite often the kids would go down to play and I found it a beautiful spot to watch the sunset.
Sitting in the small lagoon I got to watch the sunset as the surfers came in and my kids played in the small rock pools. It was a really great location for families. At night it was also very dark and a great spot to watch the stars. We walked back down to the beach and with virtually no light pollution just stood and looked at the stars over the water. I then took some great photos of the stars with my daughter, with the two of us being the only ones out there.
I had heard about the stingrays at Hamelin Bay so we added Hamelin Bay as a place to camp. Every sunset we would walk down to the beach where 5 to 10 huge bull rays would basically beach themselves right at your feet.
