Margaret River in Flow

The river called the Margaret River is flowing beautifully. It is only a 20 minute walk from Loaring Place B&B. Bella loves water and immediately jumps in for a taste and a splash.

Smiths Beach and Canal Rocks

Visited Smiths Beach. Bella loved running through the sand and splashing in the creek. There were about 30 surfers in the water.
On the way we did some tastings at Credaro cellar door. It was Virgin Block but now run by the Credaro family who are largely grape growers in the region. Their wines are very young but pleasant. The building is very good and has a magnificent outlook.
Then had lunch at Lamonts at the Smiths Beach Resort. Actually we didn't feel like a large meal so sat in the patio of the deli also run by Lamonts. Pam had a really yummy toasted sandwich with goats milk cheese and spinach. I had a great steak pie.
Visited Canal Rocks. This is spectacular coastal scenery and great watching the waves crash onto the rocks

Tree Top Walkers

Cliff and friends stayed with us and then moved on to Walpole where they enjoyed the Treetop Walk. They sent us this picture and also one one of Bella. Cliff also left us a great review on TripAdvisor.

5 of 5 starsReviewed May 26, 2012
The property is located in a quiet corner surrounded by lush greenery and the room luxuriously furnished. The layout of the property allowed us to enjoy absolute privacy in the room while catering for interaction opportunities with other visitors with a huge dining/common area.

The host, Dirk, was very warm and helpful. On our arrival, he gave us great suggestions on where we should head out to in the Area and on the day of our departure, he pointed out the various places of interest along the way to our next stop in Pemberton.

To ensure a great start to the day, the host serves up a delicious spread for breakfast (eggs done to your liking, bacon, ham, toast, tomato, cereal, fruits, juice, coffee, tea). And for company, the host's got a friendly and playful dog.
