Albany Holiday - Day 5 (Part 2)

After our packed lunch, we went on some of the other lookout points.

Stoney Hill 


Beautiful view, but pity the skies were a bit gloomy 

Next stop - Cable Beach

Lovely! 

Staircase going right down to the Coastline





I never knew Albany is so beautiful!!! 

Lighthouse on the right

Feeling on Top of the World!!! 


Love, Love this photo! 

Walked right up to the Lighthouse 


Absolutely gorgeous scenery!  We kept saying over and over again - Albany is just beautiful...!!

Headed back to the holiday home after that.

Took a photo of papa taking a photo  :-) 

Cheeky girls 

We went grocery shopping in town that evening.  Took this photo of a bush fire on the way back, around 6+pm. Saw it burning that morning around 11+am. Gosh, burning for hours!

Bush Fire 

Day 5 Dinner 
Roast Chicken (store bought), Hot Soup (leftover porkbone soup base from previous night but I added additional carrots and iceberg lettuce.Super sweet!)  Sausages and rice

Ipad time with Ah Kong after dinner  :-) 

After dinner, hubby and I walked to Goode Beach. Super cold but it was nice to stroll along the beach, illuminated only by the bright moonlight.  Beautiful end to a beautiful day  :-)

Albany Holiday - Day 5 (Part 1)

Plan for the morning is to go on some of the scenic trails... wheee peeee!! Parents and girls at the holiday home so just the 2 of us.

Main Trail of the Day - Isthmus Hill and Bald Head Track 

Start of the track.  So exciting! 

Snap, snap photo while walking.  :-) 


Not a track we can go with the girls 

End of Isthmus Track
OMG...... absolutely gorgeous!!! 

The only time in this trip I took my jacket off outdoors! 
Beautiful day + warmth from all the walking.  But only lasted few minutes before I had my jacket back on.  hehe.  

Realised I was wearing my 21km run finisher t-shirt, so asked hubby to snap the back as well.  ;-) 

Enjoying the view 


Could just sit here for ages! 

Continued on to Bald Head Track..

What can I say?  Just Bee-Yoo-Tee-Full!!! 

Blue-Green Water 

Wildflowers on the track

Isthmus - with water both sides 

Such a lovely track! 

Various Wildflowers from the Track 


We only walked part way of the 16km Bald Head Track - turned back when it got a little steep and slippery.  Plus we were cautious from the wordings on the board :  "should be attempted only by the fit and well prepared" & " track is steep and difficult in some areas and there are many tigersnakes".  First one (fit) is hubby's fear while second one (snakes) is mine!

But definitely happy enough with what we saw from the track.

Selfie before heading back  



Felt hungry after the trail, so it was time to look for a spot to eat our lunch.

Found a lovely spot! 
Few minutes drive from Bald Head trail. 

Food somehow tastes better when there's beautiful scenery!
Chicken patty, bacon and fried egg sandwich.  Yumz

Our picnic table overlooking the water

Albany Holiday - Day 4

Good morning Day 4!

Couldn't resist snapping this photo.  Papa said he found a nice place to warm his bum. Hahaha! 

Road trip to Denmark today.

Trail nearing the beach 

Shelley Beach 

Lots of seashells at this beach! 

Girls with grandparents 


Lookout Point near Shelly Beach
Just Beautiful! 

Family Photo 

We saw a Paraglider at the Lookout Point
Omg..... super scary!  I'll never dare to do this.  Such a windy day too. 

Up, up, up into the sky! 

Planned to have lunch outside today, so we didn't pack our usual sandwiches. Spotted a nice place for a bite..

Boston Brewery 

Nice cosy place 

Fireplace in the middle 

Food was good! 

Empty plates and Satisfied Bellies! 

@ Green Pool, Denmark 

Such calm waters, sheltered from the Great Southern Ocean by rock boulders.
