Beaches, limestone cliffs, dolphins, a cantilever lookout and when Silkies attack.
Today I explored a well-known landmark of the Rockingham area, Point Peron. Point Peron is known for its protected beaches, limestone cliffs, sea life, flora, sea views, and a controlled use causeway that links the mainland to the naval base at Garden Island. I have walked to Point Peron before, but I am yet to really explore it. Starting at base camp in Shoalwater I walk up Safety Bay Road past Lake Richmond and begin my Point Peron Walk at Mangles Bay.
At the corner of Hymus St and Esplanade I turn off the cement path and head onto the sand and walk along the northern end of Point Peron. As I admire the stunning water views and the quaint old beach shacks, I can hear in the distance the yapping from an unleased dog being walked by its owner. Little did I known the yapping was at me, and soon enough the dog was nipping at my new Fila Fortifiers! Luckily it is only a Silky Terrier so there is no damage, just annoyance. Should have kicked the little shit into the ocean! However, the old man that owned it was very apologetic so guess I will give the dog a break ... this time.
