Way Down South
I thought it was time that I joined in the chorus and threw up my two cents worth as an extension to me mates blurb on the ole jetty in Bussleton and his touch on “Margs” as he put it.( my mums name is Margaret – just in defend mode ! ). For those lonesome travelers its Margaret River, and it is most certainly is a wonderful part of the world. If fact , I would have been passing through Margaret river this afternoon if I hadn’t have dropped the blackers on the tiles. ( blackberry for you apple lovers ) Thankfully those wonderful people at the Mobile phone repair shop in Perth fixed it straight away. Yes, like you I was surprised people still held parts for my phone. Anyway, getting of the track here – I was on my way to Denmark. This time you are incorrect, as I was referring to the Denmark about a hour past Margaret river and not a town full of blue eyed , blonde haired babes speaking Danish ( I will save that story for another day ). A Friend of my has a little beach shack down there ( $750,000 ) so thought we might go down and hold things together as there is a reasonable storm coming through in the next few days. That also usually brings with it a decent size swell and hopefully, we should have it all to ourselves – oh and the great whites.
The Stretch from Margaret river, through Denmark then mutton bird island and through to Albany is a truly amazing spectacle to witness and should be placed very high on the bucket list. With no land for miles, the southern tip of Australia is exposed and formed some amazing rock cliffs and giant size boulders sticking out of the water. You can see whales floating just of the coast in their hundreds if you go at the right time and if you happen to be from that wonderful part of the world in Asia, please keep a good distance when visiting the blue holes. Now you wont get a sun tan down there but you will see beauty amougst the raw chizzeld countryside. Nothing makes the wood fire inside feel better that a 120k knot southerly belting in to the window whilst sipping on a glass of margs finest Shiraz . So much so, that I will carry on this adventure another time. Time for a red.
