|Sunrise over Geographe Bay.... strap yourself in for a lot of impossibly beautiful coastal scenery.|
|Last nights stealth camp was a nice one.|
|I've just dropped onto the beautiful... and deserted Bunker Bay.|
|The western end of Bunker Bay is pretty nice too.|

|Filling out the track register... I was finally on the Cape to Cape Track.|
|After visiting Sugarloaf Rock I climbed back up onto the C2C track.|
|Approaching Mt Duckworth Camp the C2C follows an old sandy 4wd track.|
|I'm on my way again... looking back towards Yallingup Beach.|
|Now this was a little more comfortable than a stealth camp in the dunes!|
According to my GPS I walked 32.7 kilometres and climbed 990 metres today (I’d treat the GPS climbing figures with a little suspicion as a lot of the walk is along cliff tops and I think it throws the figure out a bit). Over the two days of my C2C walks so far I've walked 42 kilometres and climbed 1,100 metres. For me today was a fairly hard walk although I’m guessing most people wouldn’t find it as hard as I did, the heat seemed to do me in a little today. Water can be bought at the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse if it’s open, Mt Duckworth Camp, Yallingup and the south end of Smiths Beach. Accommodation is available in both Yallingup and Smiths Beach, the official C2C camp is at Mt Duckworth. I stayed at the Canal Rocks Beachfront Apartments and it was a very comfortable stop, they went out of their way to accommodate this hot and sweaty C2C walker.

|My first injury.... who'd of thought that soft sand and sore toes aren't an ideal combination?|
