Feb 19 – An Even Busier Day Between Cape Leeuwin and Cape Naturaliste after Busy Dunsborough Area Sightseeing
If Feb 18 was a busy sightseeing day for us, and it was, the next day was even busier. Because we traveled greater distances and saw some true wonders of the world. Like the clash of two giant oceans at Cape Leeuwin, or the majesty of the Jewel Cave, or the serenity of the giant Karri (tree) forest.
After all that, the Moses Rock, another famous surfing spot on the Indian Ocean side of Caves Road, seemed almost like an afterthought. 🙂 Here’s the part two about that wonderful experience.
Feb 19, Part 3: MAJESTIC BORANUP KARRI FOREST
The third wonder of this wondrous day was our drive through the magnificent Borannup Karri forest, the home of the giant Karri trees.
“Hug a Karri (tree) for me,” Lindsay, our Dunsborough friend and former neighbor, told us at dinner the night before at her and Andrew’s home. She is also one of the worshippers of the majestic Karri trees.
Watch how Elizabeth and I try to hug one of those giants…
Words cannot describe the beauty and the gentleness of this forest in the mellow afternoon sun. So perhaps the above images and a short video might help.
Here’s also a link to a short video clip…

Our next scenic stop off of Caves Road was at Moses Rock, another popular surfing spot. Only today the waves were only about 6-8 feet. And there were no surfers in evidence.
Nevertheless, the scenery was spectacular. Take a look…
GREEK DANCE AND TRAGEDY MEET ON DRIFTWOOD AMPHITHEATER STAGE
Our final stop of the day was the Driftwood Winery, fairly close to the Blackboy Cottage, our temporary home in Dunsborough. The place was built by a Greek from Perth, so it even has an ancient Greek-looking amphitheater.
Take a look at Elizabeth and me “performing” on this “ancient” Greek stage. She – as a dancer; me – as a Greek tragedy actor.
You can also see Elizabeth posing both as a Greek goddess and a cute grape picker, while I chatted up another Greek goddess. 🙂
