The drive from Esperance to Albany is long (over 500km) through the coastal scrub and pastoral landscape. We arrived in Albany and set up camp at the Middleton Beach Caravan Park, which had excellent facilities - probably the best we had seen to date. It was a short stroll from there to the pub for a decent meal and to watch footy on the big screen - first game for the season (West Coast v St Kilda).
We had a great breakfast and outstanding coffee at a café in Albany that had good music, cool décor and used fair-trade, quality ingredients. We settled in for a morning of caffeine (over) indulgence and reading the papers. A dreary day had a plan a driving day o check out Mt. Barker and the small Porongurup National Park before heading back to camp via Emu Bay.
