|Welcome Finn Christopher Paul Clohesy|
Then it was time for lunch so we headed for the quaint village of Cowaramup, affectionately know as "Cow Town". Why "Cow Town" you ask? Cowaramup is home to a wonderful herd of 42 lifesized fibreglass Friesian cows and calves wandering the streets, parks and shops of the village. The reason the cows are here is a carry on from the famous "Cow Parade" that was staged in the Margaret River area back in 2010.
|Every where you looked there were cows!!|
It was then that the days silliness started. We really shouldn't be let loose in areas that produce food, sweets in particular. Firstly in Cowaramup we walked into the shop "Candy Cow" which is well known for its yummy honeycrunch (honeycomb). So we just had to buy some, but they also had lots of other mixed sweets so of course we had to buy some of them too!! Then after visiting "Silk Road" which is Australia's first silk farm, we headed to "The Margaret River Chocolate Co." On their brochure it says "A World of Chocolate" and that's exactly what it is. As you walk in the door there are free tastings before the heady smell of chocolate envelopes you. Needless to say we walked out of there with way to much chocolate for two people to consume.
|Free Samples - Oh My - to much chocolate!!|
