The Pinnacles

A day trip with friends to the Pinnacles last week – somewhere I’ve never been even though I’ve lived most of my life only a two and a half hour drive away. Weather was gorgeous, saw some lovely wildflowers although the best of them were a few weeks earlier.

The Pinnacles are limestone formations not far from the coastal fishing town of Cervantes. Interestingly, it’s not known exactly how they came to be formed, but there are three theories. Regardless of how they came to be, they are stunning – as was the countryside and the coast.

We’d planned to have a simple lunch in Cervantes, and we did. Mind you, the main ingredient was crayfish (lobster) as we stumbled across The Lobster Shack. Half a grilled crayfish with salad and chips. Can’t do much better than that ...........

Not the one we ate ..... definitely out of our price range ....
