The weather was not great but at least it wasn’t pouring so we made the most and headed south once again. The beaches were our first stops and we turned off the highway just north of Cowaramup and made our way to Gracetown. We had very windy views of both North (left) and South (right) Point and found some vid surfers out there at South Point catching the waves created by the weather.
Back in the car to warm up we headed to the mouth of the Margaret River where it reaches the ocean at Prevelly. Even on a horrible day, the colours of the ocean are amazing.
Home of the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro surf competition, Prevelly is internationally recognised for its spectacular surfing conditions. There are fantastic views from Surfers Point lookout and from high up on the ridge. We braved the wind again from Surfers Point for some photos of the beach and surf and the calmer (usually) swimming beach next door of Gnarabup.
It was a welcome change to head inland to the township of Margaret River where we wandered first visited JahRoc Galleries to view their exhibits of fine art, glass, sculpture, ceramics and fine wood. Had we won lotto we could have spent a lot!!!
We continued wandering the gift shops before deciding on the Margaret River Hotel for lunch in front of the wood fire which was most welcome. We shared the pizza and then headed for home.
Busselton has Aldi so we did a large shop and picked up the extra at Woolworths as well as getting some cash out at the bank. With two five day breaks behind us we are all set for departure tomorrow and it’s only six weeks till we are home.
