Margaret River Region

After a weekend of swimming at the beach, cycling around Dunsborough, and general relaxation, we drove up to Leeuwin Estate, a wine farm famous for hosting concerts on their huge lawn, a fine restaurant and offcourse their wine.

On our way out of the estate I managed to snap a photo that seems to capture a bit of what I call the big sky phenomenon. That is the sky here somehow feels bigger. I don’t know if it’s because the land is flatter, or the clouds are higher, but it just feels bigger than back home.

On the way home we stoped in a town called Cowaramup. A few of the local shops played on the word cow being included in the town name when naming their own shops: I.e. The Candy Cow, sweat shop that make their own honeycomb and American style fudge, and a café called Udderly Divine.

It seamed funny at the time….
