Margaret River, Western Australia: Coastal Dreaming

24 Dec

It’s that time of year again, when  iphone and ipad are so crammed with photos and videos they refuse to cooperate. 

We set off tomorrow for another five-months of photo opportunities so I’m busily copying both devices to external hard drives and to the cloud. Yes, I have a fear of losing my photos. Almost the inverse of those indigenous people who believe photography steals their soul I feel mine is enhanced by the memories photos prompt and get anxious when I have to clear the decks.

Before I press delete here is a sample of our days in the Margaret River region of Western Australia, on a stopover back to the east coast of Australia. Coastal WA is a place that always rewards. This was our third visit to soak up its big skies and wild ocean, and sample delicious local food, wines and world class hospitality.

We stayed with Gayle in her Wilderness House. Wallabies grazed in the garden and bird calls woke us each morning.

Pure bliss.

Special mention for Gianfranco of Carpe Diem wines. He makes a wonderful range of Italian-style wines and is a marvellous wine interpreter. He and Stuart feature in a photo below taken at his cellar door.
