After a morning of rain and drizzle, we finally managed to get ashore in the afternoon to explore Australia’s whitest beach. The sand is very hard and very white and with a bit more sun, the contrast between the sand and the water would have been stunning. Instead it was merely great.



Flinders based himself here for a while whilst mapping the coast and Recherche Archipelago and there are a couple of plaques ashore about this.





Once back onboard, the sun finally came out and we could get some nice drone shots.





Tomorrow we will move around the headland to Esperance for a few nights. Its a short trip, but looks like we will be motoring as not much wind forecast...
