Got to see the Australian mascot today, before leaving Perth. A little island in the Swan River. I wandered around for a long time thinking where are these critters. Then headed south toward Margaret River WA. Stopped a few places along the way. Every time sign said tourist route I took it. There are plenty of road signs here but street names don’t appear very often. Got a look at Paron Point. Very cool you could see so deep into the water. Looking at the ocean floor and the way it changed from one place to another. Major wine region for Australia. I found a backpackers hotel and many of the people here are working the vineyards. They come from mostly European countries. Work a bit save some money head somewhere else. Had a conversation with a young Italian guy. He said it so expensive if your a bit short of full time you just can’t save. I stopped for petrol in Cowaramup. The station attendant was wonderful. She guided me to a few things here in MR. Made it to Surfers Point for pictures at sunset. Aslo got a good vegetarian burger at Baby Burger. If your in the neighborhood it might be worth a stop. One of the best buns i have seen on a burger. I hate it when the bun just falls apart and you only have a soggy mess left. Got a great sunset off Surfers Point. Internet is so slow I can hardly update text. The next couple days I may try updating a bit by phone. I will be hitting the extreme southwest then start along the Great Australian Bight. I don’t expect much service tomorrow or the next. The following I should be back to a real town and ready for a nicer room then I have had so far. I have had a bed each night whereas I was shooting for camping tonight but the road was rough on me today.
