Margaret River to Albany

Our travels through WA in our Cheapa Campa continue. We traveled through the beautiful Margaret River through to Albany!  Wow! Wow! Wow! So much to see, glorious wines to be tasted, beers to be drunk, food to be consumed, chocolate to be devoured and parks to be played, and that’s just the start!!! We started our glorious Wednesday morning with a coffee and chocolate tasting at Temper Temper, this place was recommended by some fellow travellers so we have it a go, and it didn’t disappoint!   And it wouldn’t be a visit to Margaret River without visiting a brewery or winery (or both)! Best thing is that most we have read about cater for kids, with huge playgrounds to keep the kiddies entertained it’s a win win for Travelling families!!!    We chose the tourist route and headed towards the Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk, found a great park in Peaceful Bay for the night and did the walk this morning, it’s a must do if you visit the area!!!!            This afternoon we hit Albany and headed to the Discovery Bay Tourism Experience, the historical whaling station! It was amazing, weren’t so much about the old whaling days, so glad everyone told us about that one!   Thanks to having a motorhome, we had another home cooked meal and kids are in bed!  I hope you all have a chance to visit this area, it’s beautiful!!!!!  Kell x

More WA Delights

Travelled down in our Cheapa Campa towards Margaret River today and saw some beautiful places along the way.  First stop was Busselton, taking a walk on the 1.8km Jetty and taking in the gorgeous views! Simply amazing! Grabbed a coffee from the cafe and Zac had a play in the park, all winners here! Grabbed some supplies from the local shops 🙂 We chose the tourist route so we could see more. Stopped at Yallingup and it was another breathtaking place (these WA beaches are pretty awesome)!! Another awesome park for Zac to have a play and Corey & I to check out the views, yep pretty awesome!   After this spot we headed down to Surfers Point in Margaret River, home of the Margaret River Surfing Pro, and guess what?? Anther awesome view! So lovely to see the sun over the ocean in the afternoons! Really is a photography paradise 🙂    Was nice to feel the sand between our toes too! We decided to stay in town at Margaret River so we can get an early start to explore the region! Watch this space for tomorrow’s adventures 🙂

Reminiscing 

Well at the moment we are in the planning stages to head off again! Going through photos and I’m getting mega excited! We think we have found the perfect caravan to buy (so watch this space) and we are getting used to have another little nomad in our group (Baby Brett)!

Distance Education seems to be the way to go for us & for Zac, am looking at watching how we go when we are in our van again! Making use of having family and friends around has been great too! We have also had a few opportunities to house sit, so GO US!

Looking back through our photos – we certainly have seen some beautiful places, and looking at other travel blogs we certainly have a lot more to see! I will keep reminiscing, and keep doing small trips around Townsville – while we plan to depart again!

Stay cool people x

Our second little cherub “Brett Corey Stephenson” arrived safely into the world on Tuesday, 6th January 2015!  Zac is thrilled to be a big brother and we are all over the moon with our little addition.

Thank goodness for family and friends, they have been a constant support network while we have made the transition from ‘3’ to ‘4’.

Brett is the most amazing little baby, he is very happy and loves being in the car.  His Dr has told me he is thriving, so I’m guessing Mummy and Daddy figured out the baby thing again quite quickly (it really is just like riding a bike).
