Feeding time!

Dirk and Bella are feeding our hens and rooster their morning weeds and grain. Yesterday we also did some weeding and they are now over loaded with green stuff! Bella loves visiting the hen house but she can get a bit bossy with them especially when they escape from the hen house and she has to get them back in!

Lunch at King Trout in Pemberton

Visited Pemberton which is only an hour and a half drive away from us in Margaret River. The country side is very pretty at this time of year and you go through some magnificent Karri forests. We stopped first at The Warren Vineyard and tasted some of their excellent wines. We then went to King Trout which is a trout breeding and fishing farm as well as having a lovely restaurant. I had the best trout I have ever had. You can also get a platter of trout and yabbies that looked really delicious.

They have a large lake stocked with trout. You can hire a fishing rod and have a go at catching the trout yourself. The scenery around the lake was very pretty and Bella of course had to go in for a swim. 

We drove back via Nannup which was very lovely as well.
