Holiday snaps from Western Australia

Elephant Cove

I’m still on holidays with my partner in Western Australia. We are having a fantastic time driving around, staying in fantastic chalets and B&Bs, eating good food and generally relaxing. We’ve been doing very little in the way of active pursuits this holiday, which has been a good break. I am feeling relaxed and rested. We fly home on the red-eye tomorrow night and will arrive back in Brisbane at 5am on Monday morning. I still have a week off work when I return home so I am hoping to catch up on some running and gardening when I return.

Relaxing at Tweed Valley Lodge

The Forest Retreat B&B, Margaret River

Guildford River Retreat where we spent the afternoon watching movies

The view from the Rainbow Trail Chalets

Examples of some of the amazing accommodation we’ve stayed in. It’s been really easy to unwind while staying in these places.

Making a giant jigsaw puzzle at Bridgetown

Chilling at an old mine in Pemberton

Hmmm …

We’ve had some fun doing simple things like playing table tennis on free tables in Fremantle, checking out the Jigsaw Puzzle Museum in Bridgetown, sightseeing historical places like the old mineral mines in Pemberton, and trying on costumes in shops and visitor centres.

One of the many delicious meals we’ve eaten

We’ve eaten cake every day

Self catering with fresh local produce

We haven’t gone hungry during our holiday. The south west of Australia is known for good food, wine and produce. And we’ve been making the most of the opportunity to indulge a little. But we’ve not over-indulged. We’ve restricted our cake eating to one selection a day, eating one dine-in meal a day, and self-caterinng dinners of cold meats, olives, chutneys and fresh local fruits and vegetables.

A beautiful tree-lined highway

The roads here have been beautiful for driving. There’s been a fantastic mix of bush and farmlands.

It’s been the perfect getaway for my partner and me. While I’ve not done much running or other exercise this week that doesn’t matter in the scheme of things. Life’s about balance so a week of indulgence is probably a good balance to the busy lives we usually lead.
