During the night there was a storm with rain lashing the windows. By morning it had cleared up and a sunny day was forecast for our expedition to Mt Lesueur. C, E and M walked to the top of the plateau, from where there were views on all sides, including the sea north of Jurien. The top of the plateau, which had suffered a huge bushfire 4 years ago is now completely covered in waist high yellow hakeas and none of the trigger plants at ground level observed on a previous visit with the Nats.

There were lots of wild flowers out beside the path going up and down, about 4 kms round trip from the car park.

On returning to Jurien, we had a short siesta and then went for a walk out on the new jetty, followed by a beach walk to the remains of the old jetty. Later we went across the road for dinner at the Beach Bistro, a small restaurant owned by a family from Glasgow. It was surprisingly good! We enjoyed a bottle of Yilgarnia Merlot.
