Day 340 - Busselton Afterglow.

  Extending out to sea Busselton jetty bends its way into the Indian Ocean 1.8km long.  It is the longest wooden pier in the Southern Hemisphere.  Started to be built in 1853.  Ships started to use it some 10 years after that.  It wasn’t until 1960 that the full length was complete.   Now it is a stop off place in the Margaret River playground for tourist and fishermen alike.  When the sun sets in the Indian Ocean lights begin to shine down the entire length as a beacon out to sea.   A very peaceful and beautiful spot to watch the sun go down after playing in the wineries, and chocolate houses of the area.
