Hello again everyone!
Our journey continued from Perth down to the south of western Australia where we visited practically every town on the map! We set out from Perth on our first day and made our first stop Mandurah, where everyone told us there were loads of dolphins - guess how many we saw ...... none! We then set off again in the silver explorer to Bunbury - the capital city of the south west we decided to make this our first overnight stay and had a nice meal in the local pub. We got up early and booked on a swim tour to see the dolphins! The tour lasted for three hours where we saw absoloutely loads of dolphins and got to swim and dive with them it was truly amazing.
Following this we set off to Bussleton which is home to the worlds longest jetty which is 2km in length! It is a pretty town but we only stayed here for a short while before heading off to our second stopover in Dunsbrough. We stayed here overnight and had hotdogs and pasta for tea - mmm mmm! Unfortunately we had to share the hostel with 90% of the Japanese population and have you ever tried to get in a kitchen with about 70 Nip masterchefs? mayhem!
Anyways, from Dunsbrough we headed north to Cape Naturaliste to see the lighthouse at the most noerthern point of the journey and found that the worlds population of Dragonflies had also decided to go there - Shell absolutely hated it and had to be dragged out of the car! We continued our travels southwards to stop at Sugarloaf rock - which is basically a rock made out of a loaf of sugar - ha ha only joking - I havent a clue why its called that but we did manage to see a blue tongued lizard here which was nice.
We moved further south to a strange little village called Yallingup which is just a big circle of houses with a beach - quite boring actually before heading to our 3rd night stay at Margeret River. We checked in at the YHA here and met a really weird old couple who were from Wolverhampton - so that says it all!! We dumped our bags and headed to the mammoth cave and lake cave which were really picturesque and beautiful places. On the night we had a meal at a place called the corner bar for $5 - backpakers special only did one dish and luckily for Shell it was chicken and potato wedges!!
