Our next stop was Albany. We stayed there for 4 nights and again had an awesome time.
We stayed right on the beach and met another family travelling around. It was great chatting to Kate and the kids and hearing where they have been and what they are doing.. In Albany the days were a little cooler, so we did a lot of touristy things. We explored the Brig Amity and learnt all about the settling of Albany.  We wandered around the town, went to the farmer’s market and got some fresh veggies and strawberries, I think Scarlett ate nearly the whole punnet in one sitting. The kids founds some great old trees to climb and had a ball seeing how far they could get.

For mothers day the kids woke me up to fruit loops and lots of kisses, Mike had again outdone himself in finding truly amazing mother’s day gifts and I loved loved loved Oscar’s card that said ‘ You look like love’ I think that was my favourite favourite thing! We then took the kids to the playground nearby that was huge, they loved it!  For lunch we went to this old pub that had a beautiful beer garden and we kicked back having a yummy meal and a few drinks. What a great day!

That night we were visited by the bandicoots, who came right up to our camper door. Osc and Scarli were delighted to feed them some bread, they even took it right from Sscar’s hand!

On the Monday we went to whale world. I found this so gruesome yet so fascinating. What we used to do to those majestic creatures is truly disgusting and the jobs that some of the men had were just horrible to think off. The history of whaling in WA is such a big part of it’s history and I found it so fascinating, but feel much happier to know that we no longer take part in this savage hunt.
