... Apparently they sell coffee, make their own pies and have a number of other cafe type items for sale. It was certainly a first - buying coffee from a butcher.

It was great seeing Ingrid after such a long time. Her husband had inherited the family farm about 5 kms out of Tambullup. They have approximately 6000 acres that they grow wheat, barley and cornella on. They also have about 1000 head of sheep ...

... a couple of sites suitable for caravans – so all OK for us. The only downside is the closeness of the main road with a constant stream of trucks carting grain to Albany for a grain ship docked in the harbor. The upside being the trucks stopped approx. 7pm in the evening, and we enjoyed a beautiful weekend camped in the bush.

Not even looking to see if there were any available camp spots on the way back to Albany. We did about an hours research before leaving Denmark this morning, coming up with a cheap caravan park 10 km from town ( King River Palm caravan park).

Tanya developed an initial case of apprehension (I suppose after her unintentional 'near-death-experience’ at the Natural Bridge she had become more cautious), but I scurried right up the ladder to the top to enjoy the 360 degree views. It was ridiculously windy up there (good thing I had my chemo-patient look going on to prevent my hair from getting out of control), but there were guard rails all around so you would ...

... made us regret it in the morning. We left the farm on Monday morning once we had packed up again (we will certainly get faster at that as time goes on I hope!) and headed to Albany, catching up with mum and dad along the way to accept some welcome treats from mum (mum, the cookies were almost all gone by Monday night!).

    We stayed here back in March 2014. It has been one of our favourite hostels. The staff are friendly and the place is clean and in a great location to all attractions. The pancakes in the morning are AWESOME. Wish we had more time
