A few weeks back we snuck off for a few days down south to Margaret River. Visiting Margaret River is like catching up with a long time friend you just havent seen in a while & when you do see them you wonder why its been so long between visits. Our visit was everything we could of imagined & more. Margaret (aka Margaret River) you sure know how to make everyone feel welcome.
We headed to this nature reserve right in the centre of Margaret River bright & early most mornings. We couldnt get reception at our cabin so partner Mr L used the internet while K-bear & I went exploring. A quick play on the park equipment (it was wet from rain the night before, boo!) then running up & down the bridge. A kind local pointed out the marron in the lake which we would of missed otherwise as they blend in so well to the water. The ducks were super friendly there was even a white one that casually followed K-bear around, he didnt know what to think. The 6.30am view over the bridge was ah-mazing, it was like the tree’s were breathing fog over the lake, very mysterical.
We strolled into town afterwards & had breakfast at The Bakery (where else? Yes thats the cafe’s actual name). I was drawn into the bohemian cafe when I sported all the milk bottles had been upcycled into planters for herbs. This is such a great idea, that Im thinking of borrowing it for my cottage garden. I hope that this cafe survives after McDonalds is built (one just got approved down the road so not sure what impact it will have on the lovely little quaint cafes dotted down the main drag). The Bakery is literally bursting at the seams with decor, there was no room to push a pram in I had to carry it over the tables, I was one determined lil lady. Space is precious here & everywhere we looked we were engulfed with pretty trinkets & treasures its like the owner had a fab old time hitting up every market, garage sale & thrift shop which certainly shows. Gorgeous!
After drooling on the glass cabinets crammed with bakery goodness we decided to order. We were h.u.n.g.r.y! Look at that mountain of bacon on Mr L plate, it screams to me “eat a piece” (and y’know I did! Yum).
While waiting for our food to digest lil man is casually resting up (not sure where he gets his table manners from hee hee…).
And now we are ready for more adventures…
…to be continued.
(*As it takes me forever to sort thru photos I will be posting more on our adventures in Margaret River in the next few days. Please be patient, they are certainly worth it!)
