Cervantes, a little fishing village on the Turquoise Coast, is one of my favourite places. It’s an easy drive, a whisker under 200 kilometres (123 miles) north of Perth in Western Australia.https://maureenhelen.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Sunset-at-Cervantes-2.png

The town’s main claim to fame is its proximity to the Pinnacles Desert. Eerily beautiful, thousands of pinnacles – ancient yellow limestone pillars and domes – rise from the sand.

Other claims to fame at Cervantes are the rock-lobster fishing industry and a nearby lake with stromolites even older than the pinnacles.

Fishing, swimming, walks along the beach and watching unbelievable sunsets fill our days.

Random Spanish names given to all the streets and parks in the village  capture my imagination. A claim to fame? Perhaps.

Sue W. of Yorkshire UK, who writes the blog Nan’s Farm Inside Out and her friend decided to fill the void left by the demise of the WordPress daily and weekly challenges. They have thrown down the gauntlet and this is my response to their first challenge.
