Been a while since we posted anything. I prefer to use Instagram and Facebook now.
For the past month we have been back at Olive Hill Farm in Margaret River, WA. It seems we are farmers now due to a change in circumstances at the farm. We are looking after cows, sheep, chickens, goats, horses and learning to use the various machinery needed on a farm this size. We are still taking care of the caravans, air b&b studio and soon Trevor the glamping bus will be back on site. Although it keeps us busy we enjoy the vibe of this place. There is always something to do. Our plan is still to return via South Australia to Victoria where we will sort out some house and belongings before getting back on the road again. We will head up the east coast at a more leisurely pace as we rushed through borders due to covid issues last time. By the time we get to Geelong it will have been two years on the road and many more to come.
With the Xmas and new year festivities over, it was good to get back to our version of normal. With our COVID booster jab now due, we managed to get a booking at the pharmacy in Margaret River for the thirteenth of January. Hopefully this will be the last one we will require. We are lucky to be in WA at the moment as COVID has been relatively kept under control. This will change early February no doubt when the border re-opens.
Margaret River is a great base making touring the area easy. We have managed to visit all the surrounding towns. Coweramup, Dunsborough, Busselton. Vasse, Gracerown, Yallingup to name a few. we still have the southern towns to visit but we have plenty of time.
Each of these were fantastic and had the the bonus of amazing beaches. We also visited Canal Rocks which was wild, with massive ocean waves crashing against the huge rocks surrounding it. We then took a stroll along the walkway, we watched as several youngsters were jumping off straight in to the deep water below. As usual it was ‘No Dogs Allowed’ so our time was limited but we managed to get down to the boat ramp in time to see a huge stingray swimming just off the ramp.
We found ourselves back at the Colonial Brewery next to the farm for Reggae n Ribs Sunday. We enjoyed a few hours here with the camp hosts and our new friends, Andrew and Kim who are great company. These guys will leave soon as they make their return trip to Tasmania. They are due to leave the day before us on the seventeenth and eighteenth of January. Today Tuesday the 11th, we are off to the Prevally beach for a few of the hottest hours of the day. today and tomorrow will be in the mid to high thirties. Happy New Year to everyone. Hope 2022 finds you healthy and happy.
