Anzac War memorial park This was really cool. We got to explore the gun placements, battery and some of the war machinery and defences that were built during the first world war. It was a highlight for me …… military history lesson comes alive!

We went to take a look at the Dog Rock and had lunch at the shopping mall nearby. Managed to squeeze in some time for quick shopping too! After that we headed down to check into our cottage at Denmark. IMG_7118_fbIMG_7016_fb

Western Australia Trip 2015 – Day 3

We started off our morning in Albany by having breakfast at Kate’s Place. It is a quaint cafe that serves really good breakfast. Absolutely love the poach eggs and the mushroom toast we had! Oh and I am no bacon lover but I really love the bacon here in Australia!

After a hearty breakfast, we proceeded for our sight seeing. First stop – Brigg Amity. We spent the morning getting a glimpse at the history of Albany. The Brigg Amity was a ship that brought in the early settlers to Albany. We explored the ship and toured the museum too.

Spent the afternoon at Discovery Bay. Had a tour of the whaling house. Really gory but whaling is part of Albany’s history. Explored another ship, Cheynes IV, that was used for whale chasing. Whaling was really a big industry for Albany in the early 20th century.

And our final stop – The Wind farm. This was definitely the highlight of the day. It so happened that we went at sunset and it was absolutely beautiful. Also saw a full rainbow for the first time which took my breath away. What a feast for our eyes! Felt amazed at the beauty of God’s creation and a reminder of His promises.
