After the Treetop Walk our next stop was to William Bay National Park. This is home to both the Greens Pool and the Elephant Rocks. The Greens Pool is a secluded beach protected from the Southern Ocean’s swell by rocks giving the impression of blue lagoon while the Elephant Rocks are a collection of huge granite boulders that resemble a herd of elephants on the march. Another interesting fact is that in 2008, in the park, Main’s assassin spiders were discovered to inhabit the park. These are rare and threatened species of spider.
We had agreed beforehand to share the drive into Denmark town but we came a cropper when we discovered the cider factory, just off the road. The Elephant’s Rock Cider Company was owned and run by an Englishman from the midlands and his wife. Before we knew it John was well on his way after some sample ciders while Karen was busy tucking into the toffee and sauces that are also on sale. This was good stuff.
Karen would have to drive into town after all.As we were fighting over this in the car, John noticed a sign for a place called ‘Peaceful Bay’ and said…I just want to go to Peaceful Bay!

Much mutual laughing ensued.
We ended up stopping again at another beach called Cozy Corner. They really do have these lovely beaches dotted all over the place.
Oh and before we forget… Timer photos were attempted again with mixed results.
