After a mad dash from Wiluna we arrived safely at Margaret River on Sunday. What a contrast to Wiluna….and what a delightful place for some well-earned RnR. Despite the cool weather and intermittent rain we have enjoyed the time off the motorbikes.
Monday was spent exploring a State Park and a limestone cave. Yesterday we went to lunch ( very long and wine-fuelled) at the Leeuwin Estate restaurant on the outskirts of town. In a beautiful setting within the vinyard the restatuant was a welcome change to the camping tucker to which we have become accustomed. Afterwards, at the bar, we were fortunate enough to meet the eminent artist John Olsen, who has designed the labels for the Leeuwin Estate Art range. And what a delightful company he was, kindly agreeing to sign a dozen bottles of Chardonnay which we will auction for our Youth off the Streets charity. Tricia Horgan, MD of Leeuwin Estate was also a warm and generous hostess, kindly donating the dozen bottles of wine which were duly signed by John Olsen….see
