Vacation Day 1

I'm sorry I haven't posted sooner about this, my life has been consumed by sewing lately.  But more on that later. (Probably).

We drove down south early Friday morning, heading towards Dunsborough to see the cape there.  We ended up not taking a tour of the lighthouse, and instead did some impromptu hiking.  We thought it'd be a nice walk, the path started out paved and easy to identify, but it quickly became a tiny dirt path.  We wanted to make it down to the ocean, which proved harder to navigate than we thought, but also it was so peaceful there.  Up in Perth, unless you're inside your home, there are always people around, you can always hear cars; it's a city.  For much of our hike we couldn't see any other people, there was no one on the track or visible in the surrounding area.  There were no cars, just the ocean in the distance.  And the landscape was beautiful, all scrub-brushy and green.  Once we actually saw the ocean, it was a feat to get down there--a combination of rock scrambling and walking (falling?) down dunes.  But it was worth it.  We then headed into Nannup, where we spent the next three nights.

We stopped for lunch at a Sushi bar, and saw this
on the way out.

The flies were the only downside to our adventure--they were
horrendous.  That's actually one on Dan's forehead.

The flies don't like interior spaces, so having something swinging
in front of your face does actually deter them from going behind it.
So Dan occasionally wears my bag as a hat.  I just let my hair swing free.


Where we ate dinner.  This is the last food picture, I promise.
But this was by far the best fish and chips I've ever had.  We actually
got to choose what fish we wanted, and you could tell the difference!
