So this morning we packed up the car, and headed out for a drive in the country.
One of the things I love most about driving in the country is stumbling across stands selling local produce...always so fresh and yummy!
Our destination today was New Norcia, Australia's only monastic town. It's always been on my list of places to visit in Western Australia...but not-so-much on everyone else's list :) Let's face it...a day spent visiting churches and historic buildings is a pretty hard thing to get everyone enthused about!
We arrived just in time to go on a guided tour of the town...a two hour walking tour which I quickly signed us all up for. I wasn't going to give my family time to consider what a tour involving countless chapels, monks and religious history might involve :)
..the architecture so incongruous in the harsh West Australian landscape.
