We try to go away once or twice a year and for the last few years we have been making our way down to Denmark in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. There is something about the Denmark region that just draws me in, something that I can't quite put my finger on, or maybe it is something in the water? at any rate Denmark has found a special place in our collective family heart. being winter down here in the Southern hemisphere the weather was lovely and cool and rainy, with some sunshine mixed in for good measure.
The scenery in the Denmark and Walpole region is stunning, there is so much to love! from the beach and rugged coastline to the breathtaking tingle forest, from the Walpole wilderness area to the friendly township of Denmark with its great food and super friendly locals *sigh* I want to go back just writing this.
We finally found the gorgeous Elephant cove this time and I wish I had found this when we were down there in January, it is just so impressive.
We found this rock near the entrance to Elephant cove, doesn't this look like the perfect mermaid rock? I am going to have to make a mermaid tail for Miss Loofie!

We also (finally) made it to conspicuous bay/ cliffs and I have to say WOW! look at that surf, the picture with Mr Mishka in the foreground give some idea of the scale of the waves; you really get the feeling of the might of the Southern Ocean here: next stop Antarctica.
Alas all good things come to an end and after a fun week it was time to leave, I always feel that one week in Denmark isn't long enough.
Since we returned to Perth I have been very busy with costume making for a dance production at school and school holidays on top of that! However the costumes are finished and the performance over and I am now turning my thoughts to more sewing projects.
