Temporary Tourist – Hallett Cove Conservation Park

It promised to be a beautiful day so we decided Hallett Cove would be a great place to spend some time.

There is an excellent boardwalk and some challenging steps for anyone with dodgy knees!

First of all I need to say although Fergus is looking cute in some photos he shouldn’t have been in the Conservation Park. I think I was so busy composing a photo of “The Crocks” reading the information board with the Park name in the foreground that I didn’t actually read the sign! There were also some small bushes hiding part of it.

First interesting rock formation we came across showed sedimentary layers deposited in a glacial lake around 270 million years ago.

Ripple marks can be seen in a layer.

I thought the steps would present a problem but the knees all kept working the way they should.

Those steps are now behind us.

I went down onto the beach to get some photos of the Two Crocks with Crooks climbing up to the Lookout.

Hallett Cove beach has amazing pebbles and rocks.

Someone was searching in amongst the millions of pebbles with a metal detector.

Back at home and some lovely natives put in an appearance.
