I spent a very long day on a 4wd trip up to Cape Leveque. The tour stopped at Beagle Bay community and Catholic Church, Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, and Cape Leveque.

At the Pearl Farm I then went on a 2 hour boat ride to see the spring tides in the Buccaneer Archipelago which was such stunning views of the tides that happen up here.

I did a pearl appreciation course, but I appreciated my money more than the pearls.

Lunch at the pearl farm was very yummy with refreshing Ice Tea.

The late afternoon was spent swimming at Cape Leveque on east beach, before seeing the red cliffs on the west beach as the sun set over the ocean.

The 2 1/2 hours trip home with our tour guide Roger was pretty interesting and I kept looking out for any feral donkeys in case the decided to cross the road.

Thanks to mum for giving me the $$$ for my birthday to pay for this trip.
