Christmas 2013 – Walk round Point Peron


We decided to have another adventure with just the three of us – this time going for a long walk around one of my favourite parts of Rockingham – Point Peron.  Technically it’s actually Cape Peron but who’s counting!

Point Peron is limestone, joined onto the land by a thin strip of sand that one day will erode away and Peron will become another of the many islands that dot the coast.

We walked up to the old WW2 gun emplacement and then down onto the beach, poking around the rockpools for crabs and other goodies.We had a great time, the day was still warm as the sun was setting, but it wasn’t stupidly hot, so we could explore without melting.

We were treated to a dolphin show as we rounded the point and headed for home.  A pod of maybe 10 dolphins were splashing about in the still shallow waters, leaping about, playing and catching fish.  I didn’t get any good pictures as they were a little far away for the little X100 to capture, but that’s not really a problem – it was so cool just standing with my children watching wild dolphins – not something they really get to see in England!  It’s a shame that Anja and Piper didn’t come, cos I think they’d have loved it too.
