We slowly moved west on the water and I glanced over beyond the gap where the sea breached the inlet and queried its value as a surfing spot.
“It’s one of Tom Curren’s top 10 all time breaks. He paid my old man $50 per tow to surf there, it’s that good. They call it U-turns.” I was impressed.
It was bizarre but rivetting entertainment. The only pause came when we docked at the ocean end of Nornalup Inlet. Here we had time to walk over the sand dunes to the glorious Circus Beach, lit rich by the sun and caressed by a zephyr of an offshore wind. Its colours stunning and its waters so clear; it was one of those days you wished could go on forever while the sand gave way as talcum powder beneath your feet.
Gary took off his shirt and stood knee deep in the water doing some sort of spiritual thing. His manic state subsided for a while, hard for a man who, for his “leisure” time, had chosen the Bibbulmun Track as an activity.
The legendary track, in case you don’t know, is over a 963 kilometre route from Kalamunda to Albany. Gary didn’t walk it. No, he ran it, and set a new record for the trip. Buggered up his knees but, apparently, he got some satisfaction. But that’s Gary.
