Dear Family and Friends,
I completed my travels in Western Australia with several days on the South West Highway through the "must see" areas of the Southern Forests - a very temperate zone compared to the northern deserts.
(Remember, everything is reverse "down under." The north is hot. The south is cool. March and April are autumn months with leaves turning color; evenings are rainy and chilly.)
Even the names of the towns on my route are "temperate." Bunbury, Busselton, Margaret River, Augusta, Bridgetown, Pemberton, Walpole, Denmark. I didn't get to Albany.
