... made very good chocolate....
Our second to last stop was Thompson Estate, and I'm afraid they have forever ruined C******nay's for me. Their C******nay is out of this world. Their 2013 C************* a gold medal at the England World C******nay tastings out of over 6500 C******nay's. The top two C******nay's in the world both came from Margarete River that year.

... cook breakfast (Bacon and eggs for one) and then off at 8 a.m. to the most south-westerly point of Australia (equivalent to our Lands End where the Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean meet and is protected by the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. I was due to climb the 170 plus steps but decided I might be a bit slow as there were a lot doing it so backed out. There was a very strong wind off the oceans but it was not cold.

Second, lilies are an invasive species to Australia. Amongst the plants we were digging up were huge, beautiful lilies. They refer to them as "death lilies" because they can be poisonous ...
... and the sea was as smooth as a baby's bottom, until we left the harbour. That's when I got my naval lesson of the day: the difference between a wave and a swell. When you're on land, waves are piddly little things that break against the shore. Swells are huge rafts of water that break against the shore and then sweep you out to sea (probably never to be seen again). Guess what we were riding? The boat pitched up and down like a see-saw. I usually have good sea legs, but ...
