Day eleven: Albany

Castle Rock and Granite Skywalk on the itinerary today! 

The drive to the Porongurup from Albany is 35minutes. Castle rock is a 2.2 km hike through bush to reach the balancing rock. There is an optional “scramble” up to the skywalk. This involves pulling yourself over some big rocks and climbing vertical for a few meters up a ladder. All together we probably spent 2 hours here (including a snack break at the lookout). The sights were beautiful but no match to the previous day at bluff. 

We stopped in at Nanarup beach on the way to and from the Porongurup as Denver was desperate for some surf (this beach was a bit of a detour). No luck. Only tiny waves crashing on the sandbank 😦 

We treated ourselves to a relaxing afternoon in the tent with our books. Standard bbq dinner and then a movie on the laptop.
