A Few of My Favourite Things!

Bunker Bay Resort, Perth

A & I spent several lovely and warm days in Perth attending some business meetings. Being from Melbourne and living a stone's throw from the muddy-brown Yarra River, I was quite impressed by the lovely Swan River and spent most mornings walking along these waters and soaking up the sunshine - ahhhh, Melbourne would be perfect if we could only have weather like this (sigh!).

We decided to use the weekend for exploring as neither of us had been here before. On the Friday, we decided that we would drive down towards the Margaret River region and stay for a couple of nights. A booked us into a stunning resort called Bunker Bay Resort. We stayed in a spacious studio unit which looked out onto a lake and fell asleep (after soaking in the bath) to the croaks of bull frogs.

In the morning, we wandered back up to the lobby/restaurant and stood by the wet-edge pool, admiring the view of the Indian Ocean. Isn't this (middle photo in top row) a stunning backdrop? Apparently the whales passed by on a number of occasions while we were staying at Bunker Bay, but we were not up early enough (6am) to witness this.

On Saturday night, we had dinner at the resort's restaurant, ''The Other Side of the Moon'.

Carpaccio Wagyu beef, broad beans, parmesan & Italian capers

Tomato, blue cheese & fig salad, octopus & piquillo peppers

Salt water barramundi with olive & herb-crushed potatoes

A & I have not been 'out-out' for a restaurant meal in forever, we especially enjoyed this meal. We thought very hard about having dessert but seeing as we had just visited the Margaret River Chocolate Factory earlier that day (more on this later), we decided to skip it. On Sunday, we reluctantly packed our bags and drove back to Perth for our flight...
