Not far on from the Pink lake at Port Gregory was a little place called Lynton, where a convict depot was built from 1853 -1856. We walked up the steep hill to have a look at the ruins of the once stately residence, Sanford's House, originally inhabited by Captain Henry Sanford, the Superintendent of the depot. I fell in love with the house and wished it had been restored, because we could only look through the windows. The views from the balcony were glorious!
This area is well known for its windswept trees. Many of them look like this one!
