“Happiness is a cigar called Hamlet” the old TV ad used to go (maybe it still does). Except it ain’t. Happiness is WA. Southwestern Oz is simply the most refreshing, relaxing and stimulating place I know on earth.
As Paradises go, Busselton is rather too touristy to make it to the top rungs of my personal ladder of favourites.
The Jetty reaches out two kilometers into the Indian Ocean and is a popular snorkelling venue as many exotic species flock around the 8m deep pillars.
Divers and bathers aren’t the only ones enjoying quiet sea and sail boat, sea kayaks and other forms of locomotion abount. Some lucky bleeders just anchor their small boats on the sand and loaf around under a tarp with a can of something bubbly and fresh, just enjoying watching time go by.
Some walk to the end, and can use a little bench to rest. Others can use a small tourist train with a half way stop under a welcome canopy. Lazy tikes.
At the end, you find a few pillars left over from the old Jetty that burnt down. The birds seem to enjoy the perch and the view. Who wouldn’t.
On the way back, some stop off at the (tacky ?) amusement park.
I just prefer to walk strait into town to take in the brightest coloured walls this side of Mexico 😉
Bright enough ?
I remember reading one of CHarlie Waite’s photography books in why he states “a little red goes a long way”. In other words, a bit of restraint work well when dealing with primary colours. ‘this restrained enough for you ? 😉 That’s just the Aussie way. Bright and bold. I love it.
