Day 155-158 Hanging out in Margaret River region Part 2

Do they ever stop eating and drinking?

semi-overcast 27 °C

It’s quite often that Mum stuff things up, however it is very rare for Dad to do anything wrong (and even rarer for him to admit it) but I have to dob on him this time because it has to do with me. Mum and Dad both know that I ALWAYS have to go do a pee before I go to bed. And Dad is on night pee patrol. (which means he couldn’t blame Mum for this one) But for some reason one night he decided not to take me. Well at 4am I woke up and I was like, ‘I NEED TO PEE’. I looked above me at Mum and Dad’s bed and there was no movement. I waited for a few minutes but still no movement so I started whining softly. Still nothing. I don’t know how they can sleep as this campsite is so noisy. Anyway I couldn’t wait any longer so I yelped and Mum started stirring. I looked right up at her and she looked at me and she just knew. ‘This is what happens when you don’t take the dog out’, Mum said to Dad who I’m pretty sure was asleep. Mum dragged herself out of bed and thankfully I got to pee. Meanwhile Dad continued sleeping and seemed completely oblivious to what happened when Mum mentioned it in the morning. I don’t really know why Mum got upset that she had to get up though. I mean, technically it was the morning and she is on morning pee patrol so it was her job to get up anyway.

So for our final few days in Margaret River we visited Dunsborough beach for the last time, walked around Cowaramup, which is also known as cow town and drove down to Augusta and walked around Hardy Inlet where dogs can walk on leads. Mum was back to her usual self complaining about the bad coffee and muffin she had at the bakery. She even said that she could make a better muffin. Who is she kidding? She doesn’t even know how to read a recipe let alone turn an oven on.

I got to go one last time to the Pet Retreat for a day. I really do have so much fun there because I can run around all day rather than sitting around with the oldies while they go to wineries and pretend to know about wine.

On the day I went to Pet Retreat Mum and Dad stopped at Vasse Virgin and bought some olives and tapenade.

They dropped in at Bootleg Brewery for a beer tasting and then onto Pierro winery where they bought LTC (white) 2012 and LTCF (red) 2009. They also stopped in at Saracen Estate and bought Sauvignon Blanc 2012.

For lunch they went to Cullens Wine. They really loved it. The wine was beautiful and they really enjoyed the Sauvignon Blanc. The food in the restaurant is sourced from the winery's own garden and also from local producers. For entree they had a seafood taste plate and then for mains Dad had venison with figs and a chocolate jus and Mum had some sort of fish but she doesn't remember the name of it with potato puree, garden greens and fennel cream. Dad also had a glass of Mangan (red) 2011.

They didn’t have dessert but instead went to Millers Icecream Farm where they pigged out on 2 scoops of ice cream each. Dad had chocolate malt and strawberries and cream and Mum had her usual peppermint ice cream and vanilla ice cream. (She is so predictable) They still think the ice cream in Italy is better! They can be such snobs sometimes.

Piggies!
