On the June weekend when all of the others had departed for home, a group of Y Striders stayed in Pemberton for another day. In the morning, they completed a short 300 metre walk trail around the small and attractive series of rocky cascades of Beedalup Falls and then wobbled across a 25 metre suspension bridge that spanned the creek, before completing the circuit back to the cars.
Then everyone met for lunch at the beautiful Silkwood Estate, located 1km in from the Channybearup Road, nestled on the side of a picturesque lake and back dropped by towering karri forest. It is the tranquillity that first strikes you when you arrive at Silkwood! You notice a change in pace, you slow down to soak in the surroundings and then go inside to taste some wines so that you can choose a wine to have with your meal. The autumn setting was so picturesque and tranquil that Nola found herself in harmony with the world and nature – embracing her mind, body and spirit in a series of graceful and beautiful Tai Chi moves.
Lunch was a standout! Thank you Tracey for organising us all on the day and for booking a table for 12 – we loved it and will definitely go back there again.
