I have been waiting for this weekend away from the city for soooo long (okay, a couple months)– and it finally happened! We took advantage of the long Labour Day weekend and ventured south for our first excursion to Margaret River. I can not say enough good things about this trip… the weather was perfect, location=gorgeous, delicious wine was flowing, the beaches were the prettiest I have ever seen. I can’t wait until our next trip down there, but until then I’ll have to tide myself over with these lovely images…
Day One: We started the morning with a stop at the Rivermouth. That particular beach was closed because the waves were crazyyy strong!
Aren’t our friends the cutest?!
See! I didn’t exaggerate the craziness!
Oh, heyyy husband! You’re cute!
Now, onto Day Two… Beach Day!!!
The first beach we went to was a liiiittle too rough, so we ventured just around the bend to a calmer bit of water. Of course, Kyle & I couldn’t take the easy way and follow the marked paths. Instead, we took the road less traveled & did a bit of rock climbing!
Where we were headed… so close!
We made it! The image below is the cliff we decided to scale…
Goodbye, beach… and helloooo, winery!
This was my favorite winery of the whole trip! Everything I drank at Vasse Felix tasted like magic.
Day Three: Our goodbye tour of the coast… lots of pretty beaches & crystal clear water!
Okay, okay… one last winery. They pretty much had to twist my arm to go to one more! kiiiiddding!
Hands down, Wise has the prettiest view of any winery we visited. I’m trying to convince Kyle that if we ever have a vow renewal or Australian wedding (haha, like that will happen!), it needs to be here. If neither of those transpire, I would loooove to photograph someone else’s event there! *hint hint*
Last stop: The Busselton Jetty
I’m a little (a lot) nervous about sharing this next photo with you, but it’s just too funny not to. I would like to title this trip’s outtake as “commitment.” It’s not every day you see a photographer hop out of the car in a bikini to snap some pictures! The end result was definitely worth the awkward stares & random whistles I received by other drivers. Special thanks to Sunny for snapping this iPhone pic!
