I spent my 37th birthday with the family at Bells Rapids. The old me would have opted for a lazy pub lunch, but the kids (5 & 2) are too young to sit for that long, so we decided to head into nature instead.
It was a perfect winter day and with the recent rain, the rapids were flowing. We walked the banks for an hour or two, stopping to investigate any insect or path the boys found. They walked longer than their little legs should allow and didn’t complain once.
Afterwards, we retreated to the Margaret River Chocolate Factory. The boys enjoyed chips and milkshakes while we had a much-needed sit. It turned out to be the ideal day.
