Augusta Road Trip - Part 2!

7th May 2017

I woke up a little early and noticed the sun was just coming up so went to the window and was pleasantly surprised by the view!

It's nice when you don't need to even leave the room to get a nice sunrise!!

I took a heap of pictures and since I was already wide awake I thought I would have a shower and find some coffee and breakfast before heading out to the waterwheel again.

The cafe I walked to was not open as per the advertised time! There was much sadness :( so I walked back to my car and headed to the waterwheel to find the elusive rock parrot and take some long exposure seascape shots.

As you can tell, I did not find a rock parrot. It is elusive after all!! After that disappointment I thought I would drive to Canal rocks but took the scenic route along the coast!

I can't remember the name of this place but it is here. It's at the end of a gravel road, I find these are the best roads to explore because hardly anyone goes on them!

It was quite an uneventful drive to Canal Rocks and luckily it was pretty quiet when I got there so it was easy to find a spot without any people being in the frame!

The rest of my Sunday was pretty boring, it was spent driving back to Augusta, although I did drive through Boranup State Forest and saw heaps of birds, but they were too quick for me and the road was too narrow to stop on :(. There was quite an awesome lookout located about here

I had a bit of a late-ish start this day so I could have breakfast/coffee at the bakery. (Yes, it was damn good!!)

I took the slightly more scenic route down Brockman Hwy and stopped at Alexandra Bridge because it was nice and foggy! As soon as I got to the waters edge there was a super friendly zorro duck that walked right up to me and hung around for ages, suffice to say there are going to be many zorro duck pics coming!

Yes, I do love zorro ducks!!!

Eventually zorro ducks friend came along and then they disappeared down the river

It was a most awesome weekend and definitely looking forward to more photography holidays!
