After leaving Yallingup we visited the Eagle Bay lighthouse in the Cape Naturaliste National Park. 
After a dubious start, on my behalf, we completed the steps to the top. I couldn't believe on our descent I was actually encouraging a lady who was afraid of heights (like myself)  to make the  trip.
Our next stop was Busselton. We had the best site, right at the back of the park, away from any traffic noise and right on the beach. We had our first swim in the Indian Ocean and witnessed our first WA sunset.  Everybody heads for the beach with their stubbies and glasses of wine. It was so peaceful, nobody talked, just sat in awe.
Yesterday we walked the Busselton Jetty,  the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere, 1841 metres. It was around 30 degrees and we hadn't taken water with us so we were about exhausted when we arrived back. Another mission completed!
After another great day, another swim and again a beautiful sunset we are reluctant to leave Busselton but know we have lots more to see.
