It was getting late by the time we left the prison, but we wanted to go down to the Indian Ocean since we were so close and didn't know if we'd have time to make it back. We said goodbye to Natalie who had dinner plans and set off to find the beach with Lindsay leading the way.
I have to say that Lindsay is amazing when it comes to touring and finding your way around. She had sights, walking tours and maps all within easy reach the entire time we were in Australia. Between her and Karen with her guidebooks, I was totally content to sit back and follow along.
It was dusk by the time we made our way to the beach. Along the way we passed a yacht show and lots of ritzy looking seafood restaurants. But right on the corner of the boardwalk closest to the ocean was... wait for it....McDonald's. They even had a playground. Go figure.
Looking away from McDonald's toward The Round House. You can just see it slightly right of center.

We had fun trying to get shots of us touching the water. With the waves coming in so fast, it was a little difficult to time right. Still, the water felt super warm. Almost like bathwater. I was really surprised. Guess that's what I get for living on the Pacific Coast in California.
After this little adventure, we headed back to the train that would take us to Perth. It was Karen and Sylvia's night to cook and the competition was to begin the next day.
