Viv and Charlie drove us to the airport in Adelaide and said farewell.
It was really sad saying goodbye but we hope that they come to Sweden soon.

On Tuesday we left for a three days roadtrip to the southern part of WA.
First stop was Albany which is a cosy little town by the sea. We stayed at the Dog rock motel.

The next day we drove by the coast to Denmark where we visited Ocean Beach which apparently is a great surf beach.
It felt like a Hallelujah-moment to look around and everything was beautyful.

A little further down the road we found this gorgeous little beach Greens Pool which were really nice.
Like being on a beach in Fiji or something.
It was hard to leave that place because of the relaxing and wonderful environment.

Then we went for the Valley of the Giants where you could do the Tree top walk. We also saw the very rare Quokka

We spend the night in a little village called Walpole which really hasn't much to offer.
Next day we took off for the Margaret River area where there had been a lot of bushfires.

First stop was Hamelin Bay where there was a great beach.
We actually encountered wild stingrays which we could pet and feed.

Then we drove up north to Yalingup where we had lunch. After that we took a bath on Meely Beach close to Dunsborough.
We spend the night in Bunbury where we had a really good dinner at a restaurang called Donnys Place.
The morning after we went to the Dolphin Discovery Center. We paid 10$ for entering the area just to find out that the
beach with the supposed dolphins where open to public. We waited for two hours without seeing any dolphins before heading
back to Fremantle.
