Spent the long weekend at Jurien Bay. Drove up Saturday afternoon after the wedding ceremony of one of Linda's cow-orkers. Linda took some nice sunset photos in the car (and a lot of blurry ones too :P). A few kilometres from Cervantes we saw what I initially thought were clouds of water vapour (fog?!) hovering just above many of the bushes, but quickly realised this was not the case.

The next day we took a trip to the Pinnacles desert in Nambung National Park. It felt quite surreal with the track literally weaving between the rocks. I would have been happy to spend hours driving around the track. It was nine dollars per car well spent, in my opinion.

Afterwards we went to the strangely named Hangover Bay, where some of us fished while others sunbaked (or sunburnt) or just played in the sand. Much later we returned to Cervantes to watch the sunset.

Monday was mostly spent packing up and driving back to Perth. The roads - and the same Cataby roadhouse we stopped at two days previously - were considerably busier on the return journey.

See, I read this and thought "oh, they've driven past some areas of smokebush", which has that wonderful flowing-in-the-wind effect. But I take it from the photo that it was really clouds of bugs?

Yes.

We didn't actually manage to get photos of the swarms, largely because it had come and gone within the space of less than half a kilometre, plus light levels had diminished to the point where taking non motion-blurred photos was unlikely.
