Above the surf beach is a special bench.
We leave Prevelly, but have one more place to visit in the Margaret River region.
Prevelly is a well-known town because of its beaches and its surf. The big Margaret River surfing competition, the one known for its consistent 3 metre waves, is held close by, although not on this quiet stretch of beach.
From the spick and span facilities, we knew that this must be a popular place in summer.
We’re heading back to the sea, via Margaret River itself. Here, it winds through coastal tea tree scrub and sand dunes towards the Indian Ocean.
This photo was taken almost 5 months ago. Unfortunately I doubt that this scene would look the same today – the Margaret River bushfires of 2 months ago swept through this area.
A few more peas, this time from the Margaret River region. The south west land division do share a lot of species, but it’s interesting how much diversity there still is.
These purple peas look like the same species as those in the Southern Forests.
But these orange peas are slightly different to those found 150km away.
