a sad goodbye to the margaret river

so its a long time since i've written but i have spent the last 6 weeks constantly working! after olive picking i moved to vine pruning-oh god i was crap! u have to deicide which vines to prune and keep for the next years growth. to cut a long story short it involves a lot of cutting, pulling out old vines and using a pair of secateers(like scisssors) u do taht for 8 hours a day and in teh end yr hand is like a claw!
am really selling this fruitpicking to u arent i?
but honestly i ahve had teh ,ost enoyable times in auz and met the most fantastic people while fruitcpicking. people from all difffernt countries with a variety of different reasons for being in auz.
also margaret river is such a beautiful place-even in winter the beaches that surround it such a prevellary beach are gorgeous-even so more when its stormy.
i cant iamgine ever working inside again- even when its raining and cold and u are standing by a row waiting to prune and it seems endless.
was so sad leaving and heading back to the city. but saw some fantastic sights along teh way. the gloucester tree(was to scared to climb as u climb 40 ft of the ground-made it half way tho! ) and blowholes were cool.
now in perth but heading up the west coast tomorrow. even perth with it being such a chilled out city is still to big for me now!
cant wait to get back to towns with 2 supermarkets, endless beaches and countryside-and one pub!
