On the 10th of each month I share 10 photos. This month is all about Rottnest Island, Western Australia.
Instead of catching the ferry to Rottnest Island like most people I decided to swim there instead! Rottnest Channel Swim is a 19.7km open water swim from Cottesloe Beach to Rottnest Island.
It was a tough day out on the water. A strong current made it very challenging to keep up a fast pace.
Eventually we made it to the island. I have never been so happy to feel the sand between my toes. My children were waiting for me at the finish line and I hope they were proud of their old mumma!
After the celebrations at the pub the next day was dedicated to recovering! Floating at the Basin is a bit more relaxing than the previous days swim. A unique swimming spot which is a hole in the reef, crystal clear water and white sand.
A short walk over the dunes from the Basin and surprise surprise you hit another stunning beach.
Pinky Beach is the perfect spot to relax with the Bathurst Point Lighthouse keeping a watch over the water.
A visit to Rottnest is not complete without hanging out with the Quokkas. My daughter JJ made sure these little guys had some water to drink. She is my wildlife warrior.
Another day, another bay!
This time it was a dip at Geordie Bay which is located at the northern side of the island. I must admit there were a few stingers in water so it was a quick dip!
We hardly touched the surface of Rottnest Island but I am sure we will be back!
