The first thing we did Thursday was to go whale watching. We
went with a charter company called Legend Tours just outside of Busselton. They
had a boat that was wheelchair friendly (as friendly as boats are to
wheelchairs). We then head out towards Cape Naturaliste and deep out to see.
We saw many female whales with their calves in the water. We
even saw several juvenile males that, well acted as juvenile males do. They
showed off and play fought etc. Got a little cooked on the boat but otherwise
it was an excellent way to spend 2 or 3 hours. When we returned it was lunch
time so we stayed at Port Geographe Mariner to have lunch. Alex had the Parmigana
while Jem and I had Fish and Chips. It was an exceptional meal.
While in Busselton we decided to try and walk the Jetty.
This is a two kilometre jetty. It is not to bad from a wheelchair point of view
but it is a bit bumpy. Some of the gaps in the wood and concrete planks can
catch your front caster wheels so you need to be careful. We were also fighting
a head wind which made the walk/push harder.
Our last stop that day was the Cape Naturaliste Light house.
There is a very accessible walk way that can be used for wheelchairs which goes
around the Cape. The lighthouse itself was a bit of a let down. You pay $11 an
Adult to basically walk up to it and then there is no really viewing area to
see things. Cape Leeuwin is far better.
The best thing would be to use the free scenic walk way
We got about ¾ of the way across before my arms and
shoulders were just not going to put up with it anymore.
