Having made the most of being in one place for more than one night, I may have over indulged a bit last night so woke up slightly later than usual (8.30am) & slightly worse for wear! A couple of coffees & some vegemite on toast later though, we were good to go, so set off in the van for a driveabout.
Back in the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park, we came across a sign for Shelley Cove & decided to check it out.
It was totally different to the other beaches, as it's name suggests the beach was made up of tiny shells & pebbles & although it wasn't good for swimming due to the rocks & the waves, we spent a lovely few hours collecting shells, finding crabs & climbing & sunbathing on the rocks & of course, taking photos :)
While I was exploring on the rocks I saw what I thought at first glance was a snake but luckily it turned out to be the tail of a lizard. A bit of googling later & I discovered that the tail belonged to a king's skink, a native of SW Australia. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egernia_kingii I found several of these around the same area amongst the rocks & loving lizards I was really pleased to have got some shots of them in their natural habitat :)
After we left Shelley Cove we drove on to another part of Eagle Bay. It's a lovely beach & the water was crystal clear & calm but although the sun was out, it was not that hot and a bit too windy to brave the water so we just chilled on our towel instead!

Got back to camp & while I was preparing my blog Lee knocked this up & it was bloody lovely :)
