Do you love a golden Sunset?
I know I do. And since we moved to Western Australia, we’ve been blessed with the most beautiful sunsets you can imagine.
WA is a fabulous place for sunsets and a stunning show of colour can take you quite by chance. As this one did us one day when we were doing a little exercise.
We were bicycling around Bunbury inlet at dusk as the sun set over Bunbury Tower (aka The Milk Carton – can you see the shape of it?). Fiery golden rays streaked across the sky, the water, and the ancient grove of mangroves. Gorgeous.
Other places around Bunbury to sit and watch the sun go down are Back Beach, Dalyellup Beach, Koombana Bay, and Rotary Tower.
If you’re further south, then don’t forget to stop off at Peppermint Grove, or Busselton, Cape Naturaliste or Dunsborough. You won’t be disappointed. There are some fabulous spots in Margaret River too – try Gnarabup Beach (have a beer and a pizza at Sea Gardens Restaurant while you’re there), or head on down to Redgate Beach.
Head to the coast, and that’s not difficult, in Western Australia at dusk, and on most evenings during spring, summer and early autumn you can be sure of a brilliant display.
“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.” John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
