Western Australia Day 15

A late morning visit to Moore River produced crippling views of the river meeting the sea while Caspian Terns and Silver Gulls rested on the sand.

Then heading North along Indian Ocean Drive we finally reached the Pinnacles and Nambung National Park.
Here Limestone formations stand tall among the sand and it was on such a structure that a pair of White-backed swallow had excavated their nest hole. While driving around stopping to take photo's I noted a pair of Crested Pigeon resting in the sand. Then heading back south several pairs of Emu were noted along the road side.
