I have been away for a few days again...I suppose I am cramming as much of Western Australia in as I can before I leave it. I visited Cervantes, Jurien Bay and surrounding areas with my sister Kerry and her partner Stephen, we found quite a few stunning areas with breath taking views via Geocaching.
We visited the Pinnacles which is an amazing and truly strange place, it is not that far from Perth but would you believe after living in WA for over 50 years I have never been there before this.
This is a rock off the coast of Cervantes...very unusual shape and if you look closely you can see that it is teeming with birds.

This colourful beach shack is surrounded by two story mansions in Cervantes...I think this was the only way it could compete.
We have walked quite a few kilometres this week Geocaching. It has certainly taken us to a few scenic spots off the main drag, places you would never see if not for the cache locations.

This is a strange fungus type thing that pushes itself up through bitumen roads...if you tap it it will release many spores. I have no idea what it is called, Stephen said when they were kids they called them puff balls. I cannot find any info about them on the internet so if anyone knows what their correct name is please let me know.
Some Geocachers go to great lengths to make the search challenging. See pics below for some of the ingenious ways caches are camouflaged or hidden.
