It was such a luxury to enjoy our own toilet, bathroom, kitchen, TV and lounges for a full week. We also took advantage of couple of buffet breakfasts, all of us making significant headway into the processed carbs at breakfast! We had a couple of plays in the pool, on the beach, at the boat playground and on the tennis courts etc. We also spent some very tolerable school hours most mornings in the Busselton library which is new and very well equipped.
One day trip was a loop down to Augusta to see the lighthouse and enjoy some food. We had a run around in Yallingup Maze and took in some significant amounts of very special chocolate at Gabriel chocolates. We finished the day with some Greasy Joe’s down in Augusta where it was very windy and cold. I enjoyed the view very much from inside the car. We also made a brief stop amongst the spectacular Karri trees in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
Another afternoon we went to Busselton to play in the park and see the jetty – the longest wooden one in the southern hemisphere. We took a cute little train out then walked back. Dom was in heaven! All three boys loved the push it yourself style merry-go-round in the playground by the sea and let off appropriate amounts of steam doing it!
During the week at Dunsborough we managed a car and van service too, which was nice to tick off! We also managed to get Dad an iPad which was pretty fun for all concerned! All up a lovely time with Mum and Dad in a lovely spot.
