Today we have woken to a nice day and our tour today was down the western side of the King George Sound to West Cape Howe National park. There are a number of natural features here which are interesting and spectacular. First was a walking trail down to Dunsky’s Beach which is a bit of rugged coastline on the way out to “The Gap”.

It seemed lunch was now in order so we took ourselves and our picnic lunch off to the Discovery Bay Centre and had a late lunch on the beach. Munchies completed we headed back towards Albany and the wind power observation area. Albany has a wind generation set up and this is about as close as I’ve ever seen anyone get to these things. At the closest point we were literally almost directly under the spinning blades. There are 12 in the farm and they generate a significant portion of Albany’s power requirements. Next stop was Limeburners Distillery and the thought of a single malt whiskey, alas it was not to be at more than $300 a 750 ml bottle there are more pressing things to buy, the coffee there however was more than acceptable. A fitting end to the day.
