What a week or so! Have been to Perth twice, car full of dogs. Gosh they are characters! Had an incident with Scarlet getting her beautiful Golden Retriever tail wrapped around something with velcro in the car, she nearly jumped out of the car - attached to this thing, she could have dislocated something and we could have been trying to get her off to the vet. But after some skillful hair surgery, she was cut loose.
My girlfriend & I, (Im calling her Mary Q, after Mary Quant.) wined, dined and beached our way through the week. We mostly spent our time at Prevally as it was just devine. The tide was super low, unfortunately no surf, but the dogs where in seventh heaven in a dead flat sea. Swimming was like wallowing in champagne. (cold, crisp, lightly effervescent champagne).

When the dogs were sufficiently puckkered out, we sprouced the bods up and headed out to lunch. It was definitely a week of 'leaving my liver in Margaret River'!
Our first restaurant for dins when we arrived in town, Nathalies on the main street. I thought I had booked for an Indian Buffet... but the menu had changed and we had Italian. I will write up more about the restaurants in the EAT section later in the week. We both enjoyed an antipasta plate and Scallops and Spaghetti cooked in paper packages, yum.

Mary Q was saved from the Green Smoothy, the day after by my girlfriend who I am going to call The Chef, what a yummy lunch she prepared at her house. She had been to the Farmers Markets and bought some Lamb Sausages. This was accompanied by a bottle of Witchcliffe Estate 2004 Reserve Shiraz. All YUM:)
