Gnaramup Beach walk to Margaret River Mouth

The early morning surfers were out and the joggers maintaining fitness before heading off to work, we always nod hello as they passed and the tourists at a more leisurely pace, like us, enjoying the moment, before heading back to the Margaret River Beach Resort for breakfast

Canoeing Margaret River

It is so peaceful and quiet, you can hear the splash of the oars as they hit the water as we gently canoe Margaret River. we endeavour to follow without zig-zagging from one side of the river to the other, each of us learning very quickly how to paddle a canoe.

Back to the Beginning, Margaret River Discover Tour

It was easy to see why this spot was chosen, it was pretty, tranquil and in the heat of summer, lovely and cool. The water tumbled gently over large rocks, which had been worn smooth through the millenium by flooding waters, with potholes in the rock dug by swirling pebbles as the water washed through the valley.

Piglet Races, Deni Ute Muster

Each piglet is identified by the colour of his saddle cloth.

Styled in the fashion of the Ascot Races, the trumpets blast and the crowd roars and they are off. The run and the pen are built of iron mesh and the piglets make their way through the first gate, with the leader able to nuzzle the latch up and the gate springs open.

Utes, Dust and Music, Deni Ute Muster

you could hear the roar of the engines for miles, together with the cheers of the crowds, obviously there was plenty of excitement.

Niagara Falls

We stayed in Niagara Falls a couple of days and each day, we would wander down just to check if this magnificence was still there, the sheer power and strength and volume of water flowing over the Falls is awesome.
