The Bibbulmun Track

As the weather is starting to cool down now, we decided that come Sunday we'd go for a little hike. We were welcomed on Sunday morning with glorious total cloud cover. Something which we haven't seen often in the last 4 months, so we were even more keen to get out and about, without the inconvenience of soaring heat.

We wanted to walk part (a very small part) of the Bibbulmun track, which stretches 604 miles from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills near where we live, to Albany on the south coast. We only did a few miles, as we didn't want to push ourselves too much. Emma is 5 months pregnant don't forget, and neither of us are as fit as we were when we were travelling the UK. To walk the track end-to-end takes about 6-8 weeks, so probably something we'll never do unfortunately.

We're guessing Angelique was someone's pet.

An unusual but likable memorial; we presume to someone who liked the Bibbulmun track, rather than who perished trying to conquer it (I hope so anyway).

These steps were built by prisoners from a nearby prison. I know if I were serving time, I'd rather be outside building steps than stuck inside four walls.

Emma sporting a rather nice bump here.

We hope to do a lot more exploring now the weather is cooler. So we'll hopefully have more blog posts coming soon.
