I was so excited to go, which surprised me because I haven't been excited about something in a very long time. I had heaps of fun, I love the Australian countryside. Especially down south where it's cooler. If you go north of Perth it's hot and icky.
LOTS OF PHOTOS AFTER THE BREAK!
First stop, the award winning Pinjarra bakery.
Driving. We used Merissa's mums car, as it's more reliable than Merissa's :P
We stopped at a few more places along the way to Bridgetown. This is Balingup Lavender Farm.
I love lavender. We ate lunch here, we could hear a cow mooing somewhere. There were so many flies!! We had to buy some insect repellent!
Another stop, The Old Cheese Factory in Balingup
They had lovely bat prints, vintage but very expensive!
Finally arrived at the farm. We stayed in one of these triangle houses. The family has these to rent out to people, but they still live off the land.
Merissa opening the door. I totally failed whenever I tried!!
Inside. Up in the loft there were two mattresses. We shared the twin bed because we're used to sharing :)
Such a nice little place.
The view of the dam from the front of the triangle house. And geese.
We took a walk around the farm. Here is Merissa looking cute!
Me with a cow in the background. PARASOL, SUNSCREEN, INSECT REPELLENT. Only way to live.
There were a few peacocks around, they could go wherever they wanted. I wanted to steal their feathers!
AAAH! WE GOT TO FEED THE ANIMALS!
This yard had two donkeys, a miniature horse, and baby goats and sheep :)
STOP EATING MY SHOELACE!!
I was so excited!
No carrot for you little goat.
They were so cute!
After hanging out at the farm we went to get dinner in Bridgetown. Afterwards we ate this sundae which was the best I've ever had!
The next day we got up early so we could feed all the animals. We had to wait a while, because a school group was coming to feed the animals too. We took another look around the farm.
Here are the turkeys, and a duck that kept hissing at us and wagging his tail. Merissa poked him with a stick "What are you gonna do now duck? You're stuck behind that fence! HAHA!"
This cow was so pretty!!
Got to see our donkey buddy again.
I GOT TO HOLD A BABY RABBIT! AAAAAAAAAAAH! LOOK AT HIS TAIL!!
Featuring school children.
So darn cute <3 p="p">
I got to feed them!!
Cow getting ready for milking. Each kid got a turn at milking her.
I got to milk her too!! It was easy, and I drank a little but I don't really like milk.
Notice fresh poop on the ground, reasons why you should never stand behind an animal :P
I had so much fun with Merissa. I'm so thankful that she drove me down there and spent two days with me. I really enjoyed seeing the stars at night, and I wish I got a little more time to relax. Maybe when Merissa visits Australia we can go in Winter :) I'd love to have a fire and roast marshmallows.3>
