Busselton - 29th to 1st May 09

Busselton was not far from Gracetown (Our base in MR) and we had only a short coastal drive there. Even though this was the case we arrived at our campsite in the late afternoon after taking in the white sand and turquoise waters at Dunsborough – beautiful – and then the amazing 2km Busselton Jetty with underwater viewing rooms (closed for our visit ). After all of the obligatory pictures (there is just something about jetties, they are a man made structure into the deep blue, it makes them somehow captivating) we found the perfect campsite for us – EMPTY with a heated pool! We booked in for 2 nights after only thinking originally it would be 1 and set about relaxing! We had a nice meal that night (cooked in a camp kitchen we had all to ourselves!) and headed to bed after a final sample of MR cheese and wine.

In the morning a swim in the heated pool was followed by eggs and bacon for brekkie, a walk along the beach (again all the white and turquoise!) then off into town for some grocery shopping followed by the purchase of some DVD’s! This was not something we had planned but watching a film in the campsites TV room (once again all to ourselves) was a really nice piece of normality in our ever hectic travelling lives!
The film was Oceans 13 and was thoroughly enjoyable.
The next day another swim was followed by the rest of the eggs and bacon and we headed off a little late in the direction of WA’s big smoke – Perth.
