'Make your own holiday' weekend...

Friday, 16 November 2007

Annual company function at Rottnest Island. The games this year were much better than last year. I think they are quite clever. Hats off the the organizing committee...

Li-Ann and I left at 8.30am for our 2 day trip down south. We made our first stop at Miami Bakehouse at about 10am. We tried their famous pies and pastries.

We then made our way to Busselton. We arrived at 12.30pm.

I actually bumped into a Singaporean who took part in the Perth Marathon with me. We exchanged contact numbers. His name is David Tan. He's quite a talkative fellow... my Simmos ice cream was melting away.

First visit was the Busselton Jetty Underwater Observatory.

We were lucky to catch a BIG school of fish.

The train was not out of service, so we had to walk to and fro the 1.8km long jetty.

We then checked in to Amaroo Motel. Rested for a bit before heading to Meelup Beach.

Couldn't watch the sunset as it was a bit cloudy. We had fish and chips for dinner. We noticed ALL the shops had Swim Bike Run billboards put up for the upcoming Busselton Ironman. Had coffee and cake at a place called Samorva.

Checked out at 8am. In fact, we could have checked out earlier as we were already up by 6.30am but the reception wasn't open yet.

We made our way towards Margaret River. Our first stop, Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse... but it wasn't open till 9.30am. That didn't stop us from taking pictures.

The next place, Canal Rocks was quite a wonder...

Followed by Ngilgi Cave.

Lunch was at Flutes Restaurant.

We made a visit to Howard Park Estates winery to see its unique architecture but did not do any wine tasting.

We ended our trip dropping by Candy Cow, Moon Haven and Margaret River Dairy Co just for samples but did not buy anything apart from AUD2 yoghurt which was on special offer.

And coming back, we saw this!

Looks like u had a KILLER holiday!!! Good thing the rest of us didn't go with u 2, cos i'm sure it wouldn't have been as romantic eh! AHAHa

Hehheh Marc, I'm not sure whether it was romantice or not, but it was indeed hectic! Covering so many places in such a short period of time... more difficult to be done with a big group, I suppose.
