Travel Blogs from Albany
We saw our first live Kangaroo just outside Pemberton and then we saw another and another - just like when you are waiting for a bus. Also some emus and Brian and Richard saw a big black lizard. Sunday was Australia Day - so in some parts there was fireworks but not where we were.
Today we have spent the day in Albany. It is a lot cooler …

We only got to see the street fair as it had only just started but the effort put into everything was pretty impressive. It's a shame we won't get to see any of the celebrations.
