Much country has been covered and many wonderful people have been met since last I wrote.
We left Kojonup filled with delightful memories and having held our first concert, and travelled to Albany, on the southern ocean. We had delightful hosts for our stay. Peter and Marion and the other billet-hosts helped us unload, set up, and then took us into their homes for supper before the concert. We had a great time at the concert, with over 100 attending–very enthusiastic and willing to sing.
Thanks to Barb Liotscos for the picture.
Saturday, we had time to tour and explore, visiting The Anzac Centre and the fortifications at entrance to Albany Harbour. Delightful tour guides, but most importantly, an awe-inspired display centre honouring the Australian and New Zealand participants in W.W.1, particularly at Gallipoli.
Then we went to the last remnant of whaling, a station in Albany which is now a tourist centre. Again, we ate stupendously. Here’s the view from the dining porch.
And, of course, the obligatory picture to prove we are still alive and well…note the photobomb in the background.
Then it was off to The Gap (at ocean’s edge) a distillery visit, and home to our billets.
Sunday morning we rose, led music in worship at St. John’s Anglican Church in Albany, then headed (by scenic routes–that’s for the next post) to Bunbury.
Two final photos from Albany, the view from our billet’s home of Albany Harbour.
That’s enough for now. More to come!
