Canunda National Park


Saturday was a beautiful Autumn day. Canunda is only 14 km to the south of town. If you hear a local saying "Goin' out the back" this is where they are headed. It's no go swimming, because of the undertow, you might say it is one big mofo rip. But it is as popular as flies on shit for fishing and four wheel driving.
I love coming here. I came down here and walked and walked when I found out I was pregnant with Izzy. Sitting here on this beach, listening to the thunder of the waves, looking at the horizon, knowing there is nothing until you hit the south pole, makes all your problems go away. It is so cathartic, for me anyway.

The native muntrie berry groundcovers were still in fruit.
I was very glad to get my yearly fill.

    1. I was cringing a bit because her undies would have been getting full of sand lol. Yeah, Summer just came for me and sat on my relaxed outstretched legs with that look on her face :)

    1. Their taste is hard to describe. It is native to south eastern south australia, mainly coastal, the size of a big pea, and fruits in march/april.
