Nearly had our first full nights sleep tonight, very comfortable, although Soph got woken up by man in cabin next door snoring, at least it wasn't Em! Didn't have time for breakfast this morning as Aud was keen to get on the road, but we should let you know at this stage our colds had now cleared, taste buds restored, and realised that neither of us actually like vegemite!
First stop of the day was Leeuwin wine tasting, which we jumped at the opportunity for! The place was very picturesque and they hold many concerts there, including Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey and Sting. We first look around the art gallery downstairs which was really nice, some lovely aboriginal paintings. The other highlight, before we get onto the wine, was the sinks in the toilet: they had a completely flat surface and the water trickled down the back of the wall, amazing and we've got a picture on the way which will give you all something to look forward to! We tasted some really nice champagne, white and red wine which was gorgeous and highlighted how crap the five pound penny bottles are. But these were a bit to out of our price range!!
After this we drove to Prevelly beach which was beautiful and we wathced some surfers which was really cool, again the beach was like paradise. One surfer we got talking to told us that his friend got killed last year at this bay by a shark attack whilst surfing (note the picture of the shark). Looking forward to learning to surf, but think stay clear of this area! We had lunch in Margret River, which was a really nice place, very busy, and then had an ice cream which Soph couldn't finish so gave to the Big Issue man's dog, Nanny Mary would be proud!!
Our last stop of the day was Meelup beach, which was the best beach so far and very very hot! Em took to catching some rays whilst Soph went for a dip and chatted to some locals, quite quiet here and very pretty!
We stayed in quite a shabby, old motel and had chinese for dinner. Not sure if you can quite describe it as chinese, Soph ordered chow mein but the 'chow' came seperate from the 'mein', as she had plain chicken and a bag of cold fried dried noodles. Em played it safe and had soup, which she enjoyed. So think we'll be sticking clear of australian chinese from now on!!
