- Bush Shack Brewery - specializing in novely ales such as lavender beer

Unfortunately, the older lady, Pat, driving our van developed a severe nose bleed that would not stop, but the good news was of the two other couples (I made the 5th and last guest), who didn't know each other before, both men were licensed bus drivers!!!!!!!
ANyway I am back in Busselton for the night at a very scuzzy hostel so I am taking myself to a movie as it has been raining all day - I tr ied to go for a walk on the famous Busselton Jetty but got as far as the interpretative centre but it was closed, and admired the raging surf as it has been windy and rainy today (it was 23 above yesterday!). Tomorrow Vincent and Sheila are picking me up as they have to go to Perth to bring their grandson back, as it is School break right now so I am fortunate to get a ride with them as I have to get there as well. I fly back to Sydney Sat. night and will spend a couple of days there before I go to Auckland, NZ. Am at the Library in Busselton on the free computers and cannot load any pics up from the farm or the tour today unfortunately.
