A Little Whimsy from the West

You generally don’t expect to see cows in the main street – of anywhere. But I had to do a double take as I drove into Cowaramup a couple of days ago. I know I’d been driving for 3 hours but I really didn’t think I was seeing things.

Apparently the Lions Club and the local Retailer’s Association have combined forces to import these whimsical cows and set them up in the main street of Cowaramup for the pleasure of the tourists. There’s about a dozen of them and they certainly make you smile … and that’s a good thing.

And for those of you who don’t know what you’re missing here in the South West of Western Australia, this is Cowaramup Bay on a beautiful spring day.

And just to prove that I’m not neglecting the training while I’m away from home, I found some steps. Three hundred of them – down into the Lake Cave near Margaret River and of course, as I’ve mentioned before what goes down must come back up. I was quite pleased with myself though, I barely raised a puff.

    • You are very wrong to be concerned 🙂 I don’t want to tempt fate but I have yet to see a snake in the wild and to be honest I don’t think there are any more creepy crawlies then you get in England. There probably are when you go up north into the outback or in the middle of the bush but otherwise you’re perfectly safe and reasonably bug free. So, no excuse for not visiting 🙂

  1. This is great, really beautiful and cows are such a fun idea! I must be one of the few Kiwis (adopted ones count too -:)) still left here … if there any jobs going over there for the likes of me, let me know!
    Cheers!
