I grew up near the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse at the most south westerly point of Australia so I guess it makes sense that I have always had a bit of a fascination with lighthouses.
The Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse shines it’s light towards a point where the Indian and Southern Oceans intersect and as kids we used to try to distinguish the imaginary line that divided them.
And so we drove. And drove, and drove. With long, tiring driving days and only a couple of nights for each stop, it was torture to not be on a time frame that allowed us to stay in some of these places for a week, two weeks…a lifetime.

Crowded House’s ‘Don’t Dream its Over’ is blaring from the car stereo, windows are all rolled down as far as they can go, we have a good supply of chocolate and the salty Pacific air is making my eyes sting.
Yes, this already has the makings of the perfect Californian road trip.
