      Warren chats to the lovely Jenny Seaton on Curtin FM about growing up blind from the age of 6 in the 1960's, and how it hasn't stopped him doing anything he wanted to do. He talks about his schooling, go go mobiles, his love of cars (yes, and driving!), music, playing in a band, and now running Misty Valley Country Cottages, a beautiful 100 acre farmstay property in Denmark. 

Listen to Warren's Interview with Jenny Seaton about his life growing up blind, and how it hasn't slowed him down a bit! 

The Best Beaches in Denmark, WA

The Best Beaches in Denmark, WA

As the weather heats up, we are close enough to the coast to head for the cool refreshing breezes from the Denmark beaches. There are beaches for swimming, surfing, exploring, taking your dogs or fishing, so once you have selected your perfect beach, make the most of it! Try the beachside trails, collecting shells and rocks, find a new favourite icecream flavour,  join the kids building sandcastles, or watching the sun go down over fresh fish and chips. For an amazing kid friendly swimming area, you can't go past William Bay National Park, where you will find Green's Pool, Elephant Rocks, Elephant Cove, and Madfish Bay, all stunning beaches. This map shows where most of the major beaches are situated.

Sunday Lunch at the Nornabar Cafe

Sunday Lunch at the Nornabar Cafe

Have you ever had one of those Sundays when all you want to do is go for a drive and find somewhere nice for lunch? Well this happened to my wife Leonie and myself a couple of weeks ago so we decided to take a short drive of approximately thirty minutes from Misty Valley Country Cottages to the small hamlet of Nornalup, approximately 10km from Walpole on the south coast of Western Australia.

There we found the Nornabar Cafe, and what a find it was! On arrival we were warmly welcomed by our hosts David and Victoria Higgins, who you will soon realise are extremely passionate about their food. After choosing our wine a lovely bottle of Mount Bera, a 2008 Cabernet Merlotfrom the Adelaide hills, an extremely nice choice, we focused our concentration on the menu.

Leonie decided on the very popular steak sandwich, comprising of 120g of prime scotch fillet, caramelised onions, home made tomato preserve, aioli, leaves, toasted house bread served with twice cooked hand cut chips. What an absolutely delicious choice, and extremely yum!!!! My choice was the vegetarian pasta with seasonal roasted vegetables, Kalamata Olives, baby spinach, feta, Napolitano sauce, linguine along with sliced chorizo, which is optional if you are strictly no meat. Again, this dish was really exceptional and just the perfect choice for a drizzly cold afternoon. I finished up my meal with a very nice, just right temperature coffee.

Victoria was only too happy to help us with directions to a local winery and olive farm about ten minutes drive away.

After chatting with David and Victoria for a short time we both left Nornabar cafe feeling warm, comfortably full and relaxed. Leonie and I will definitely be visiting the Nornabar cafe once again very soon and can absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting the beautiful and spectacular scenery and attractions of the south coast of Western Australia.

The Nornabar can be found at 6684 South coast Highway Nornalup 6333, Ph 0898401407, office 0898401500, and their website is at www.nornabar.com  

Munda Bindi record attempt

Munda Bindi record attempt

Perth mountain biker Declan von Dietze, 22, will leave Albany on his mountain bike on at 9am Sunday 30 April, with the aim of reaching the northern end of the 1000 km world-famous trail in Mundaring in less than one week.

He said he was attempting the record because he wanted to inspire young people to take up mountain biking. “The Munda Biddi is among the best and longest mountain bike trails in the world, and what better way to get people interested in this wonderful sport and our magnificent environment than attempting to ‘Bust the Biddi’ in record time,” he said.
