In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

“Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed.” ~Indra Devi

South of Streaky Bay on Eyre Peninsula, South Australia, are the Yanerbie Sandhills. I was hoping for a chance to find sandhills on this trip, and these were the most accessible for me without an off-road vehicle. Just my own two legs got me to these dunes. Definitely a place I’d like to return to again – with charged batteries! Opportunities to recharge my camera batteries can be tricky at times, and as I took these images early in the morning, I needed to save my next battery for the rest of the day. However, perhaps it was good that I ran out of battery power – otherwise I many have stayed out in the sandhills long after I should have left, such is the appeal they have for me.
I’ve just returned from 6 days travel across Eyre Peninsula, South Australia, and it’s going to take me ages to go through the hundreds of photos I took of this diverse region! However, here’s a few links for you to look at, to whet your appetite.
Eyre Peninsula was named after Edward John Eyre, an early English explorer of Australia. In my travels I came across some places he’d visited, and I really liked the sculptural pieces at Kimba, particularly because it recognised his Aboriginal companion Wylie.
Eyre Peninsula is a large area, and in just a few days I could only visit a small portion of it. My last trip over there was in the mid 80’s, and was mostly on the lower section, so this time I kept mainly to the upper region, and the beginning of the West Coast. I found some places I’d enjoy to visit again, for a longer time, and some places I would bypass…..
Venus Bay I adored!
Fred would be most happy to visit the beaches again and again and again!
As for the cats, they enjoyed taking some early morning walks with Fred 🙂
