En route to Perth I spied the Recherche Archipelago, at the south-eastern tip of Western Australia. It was named after a French warship and is just about at the end of the Earth. Several hundred years ago a British warship encountered it there, but because they were together at the end of the known world, they decided not to try to kill each other for once, and were friends for a day, before going their separate ways. The bay in the middle there is Hellfire Bay. I've walked that sand. It's so pure it squeaks with every step, and you can see fully 30 feet through the water. This remote place really feels like the end of the Earth, especially when the sun sinks into the sea off the western beach.
