Life in a South Western Town part:1

My home is in the Margaret River region in Western Australia's southwest. The area is not only  famous for it's wine and surf but is also home to some very interesting and talented people.

Today was the Annual Cowaramup Christmas Fair, which features stalls from local artisans and crafts people. I headed out there with some friends to check out what was on offer. My very talented friend Jo was there with her amazing hand painted pots.

  I couldn't leave with out purchasing one and it took me quite a while to make my final choice. But as usual I ended up with the first one that had caught my eye. As soon as I got home I was off to the nursery to purchase a succulent for my new pot. 
  Later in the day it was time for a drive through the Boranup Forest. I stopped at my favourite spot and took the opportunity to get the camera out of the case and take it for a walk. The Karri trees are truly breathtaking and it's difficult to capture this in a snapshot.

On a previous visit I was honoured by the presence of a very friendly local magpie, who seemed to like having his picture taken. He wasn't there today but I'm hoping he was sitting in a nest protecting the next generation.
