Welcome back to my Australia series. Today’s adventure is all about Sean climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge while Mike and I watched from on the ground. This bridge has numerous different climb options one can choose from depending on the thrill level someone wants to experience. Sean of course chose the highest point to climb nd got a stunning view of the Sydney Harbour, including the Opera House.
Up next we went to the WA Surf Gallery at the Aravina Estate Winery In Margaret River. Not only were there surfboards and pictures of the area but there were classic cars as well. Each artifact has its own unique story and place in history. From surfboards rode and crafted by famous surfers, to classic cars that once carried surfers and their boards to the ocean, this museum has something for everyone.
According to their own website, "The WA Surf Gallery will be the first and only official collection of surfing memorabilia in Western Australia, ideally located in one of the nation’s most iconic surfing spots."
Newly added to the gallery are never before seen photos of surfers and the surf culture by photographers Greg Woodward and Ric Chan. Each photograph is a look back at history.
My Australia adventure continues. This time we went to Busselton Jetty in the Margaret River Area. Busselton reminds us of our very own Huntington Beach! They hold surf competitions just like the US Open. The clear waters were a sight to see as we stood out watching the waves crash along the beach while the surfers rode in. We read the local plaques on historical events and got to take a stroll down the pier. Besides an above ground tour of the island, there was also an underwater observatory to explore the natural sea life in their homes. Before our journey back to Perth, we stopped by the Goose Cafe for coffee and food.
