The next morning was the Margaret River Farmers Markets. I noticed a few different stalls this week. The lass with the Cordials, I am definitely going to buy some this coming weekend. The fella with those beautiful flowers and the lady with the plant seedlings in little hand made paper pots, very cool.

Mum and I bought a couple of pastry snails from The Margaret River Bakery Stall for breakfast, which didn't last long enough to be photographed. (They also make the largest, yummiest looking Meringues I've ever seen, might buy some for Christmas) We bought lemons, crumbed sardines for dinner, and then some of our favourite soap.

We ended up in the Margaret River Bookshop, talking to Keith. He shows us a beautiful book called 'A Garden On the Margaret' written by Gillian Lilleyman. Keith's father is shown in an old photograph as a little boy. It turns out that Mums Uncle worked for Keith's family on a station north of Carnarvon! I wanted to buy the book, but Mum ended up buying the book. We came home to chill, Mum settling down to read the book. Next thing, she says "OMG! this is too weird, there is a photo in here of the girls I nursed with!" It was taken in Geraldton (where I was born) and she wasn't in it because she had just got married and apparently you couldn't nurse if you weren't single. How bizarre is that. It blew us both away. We have decided to put a new page on the website called stories. Too many great stories to tell.
THEN, we take ourselves off to lunch. I have booked Cullens. Before lunch I wanted to check out Windance Winery. BUT, as Im driving up Caves Road, I feel compelled to check out Moses Rock. I love it out there. Beautiful scenery of the coast, granite rocks, crashing waves, kangaroos. So, we are driving down the road, I stop to take a photo, and notice something, I couldnt make it out at first, but it turns out to be a 'horse and buggy' coming up from the beach! A great photo opportunity, me thinks. Anyway, as they get closer, I realise it's my old neighbour from Perth and Gus, their Wire Haired Daschund (who is like a member of my family). I cant believe it. Another weird happening.

Now, Madge on the other hand..... goodness knows what she runs on. She worked at the Margaret River Show and the Fun Run with her volunteer work. And, still managed to work her regular job, and, not to forget the family. (She's a 'spick and span' girl). Madge has posted heaps of photos of the Fun Run on Facebook, so go check them out. I am going to start posting more photos there as well, when I can figure out how to do it on mass. Cath
