Good positive vibes as I woke up refreshed and the car started playing ‘All things to all men’ by Roots Manuva & the Cinematic Orchestra with Frenchman’s Bay glowing in the morning light. Quick brekkie and the group was off to the wind turbine farm and next was The Gap/Natural Bridge. Both familiar sights though we were graced with great sunny weather unlike my past visits and got the Mavic Pro into the sky for a better vantage point.
Next was a quick stop at Jimmy Newells harbour and then my personal highlight, the Great Southern Distillery, home of the legendary Limeburners Whisky. It was a delight to enjoy a tasting of their finest whiskies and a gin. Should come as no surprise I walked away with a bottle of ‘Darkest Winter’ to enjoy back home!
By now most of the crew have been going at their own pace and the next destination was Mt Romance sandalwood factory for a delicious lunch and finally to the National ANZAC Centre, both with great views, cannons and information detailing the significance of Albany in the ANZAC history.
Sunset wasn’t too far away and so was dinner at Due South with the 27 MX5 fanatics. And right now as I write this I’m waiting to catch up with one of my many friends who’s from Albany. Could be a long night! 😂This entry was posted in Journey 22 ● MX5 Alive 2017, Journeys, Travel
