I’ve surprised Mike for his birthday and booked us into Darby Park Apartments for two nights, and also signed us up for some whale watching in Augusta (only 20 minutes away from MR).  Margaret river is a lush green (wet!!) paradise.  Today we’ve been sopping wet for hours, suffering all in hope of seeing a majestic humpback whale….

The cold wet misery was worth every shivery minute!!

At this point the captain revved the engine and this whale came right up to the boat…they are naturally curious animals.Screen Shot 2013-07-13 at 8.04.22 PMScreen Shot 2013-07-13 at 8.08.51 PMScreen Shot 2013-07-13 at 8.09.33 PM

 Tomorrow we’ll be touring around checking out some wineries, cheese makers, ice-cream makers, caves, farms and backroads…  I’m looking forward to seeing more of this pretty spectacular region!
