Back from beautiful Busselton after an unplanned and unexpected holiday in the South West of Western Australia. Walking, swimming, sight-seeing and catching up with friends for a week has been invigorating.

A typical day began with swim or a walk to the end of the Busselton jetty, which is almost two kilometres long. The sailing ship Leeuwin II was berthed alongside most mornings.

Those who weren’t walking at seven o’clock in the morning seemed to be fishing.

Helicopters had begun their safety patrol of the beaches along the coast .


Some young people were hard at work, creating a fun-park in the water at the main Busselton beach beside the jetty.

But we left them all to it and headed home for breakfast

  1. Wonderful week for you and John. Did you see the HUGE water slide? We read it would be there all January. Xx

    1. Yes, we did see it, Elizabeth, and it is enormous, like they said. We had a fabulous time the whole week. So lucky!
