Cervantes #2

Day Two at Cervantes and I was up in time to watch the Sunrise over the sand dunes and enjoy a walk along the beach with the sea mist rising in the pink glow of early morning. An ultralight aircraft flew overhead as I searched for the treasures left by the receding tide. A new day in Cervantes, an interesting morning tour of the Pinnacles (in earlier album) and a few more photos taken around town before returning to Perth. Enjoy these views from Day Two in Cervantes.

Information about Cervantes
A townsite which took its name from the Cervantes Islands. There are three islands in all, about one and a half miles south west of the townsite. They were named after the ship "Cervantes" which went down here in the 1840's.
