South: Brookton to home base

We took time on our way from Brookton to Roleystone to stop at a couple of places. The first was the Jelcobine Rest Area, a large area that may be used for free camping.

The second was Christmas Tree Well which is day use only. By the time we got there the cloud had broken up with some sunny spells.

We called in to see Marie and Geoff in Roleystone. They read the blog, so know our news, it was a chance to see how they were going. We stayed for a couple of hours, then drove home.

We can keep the Winnie on the driveway for another week until our neighbours return. We have it booked in to have the lock repaired on Wednesday next week. We will also get them to look at our latest water leak – grey water – which we noticed this morning in Brookton.

We have done some sorting out, but we are tired and not working very hard😀

South: Cuballing to Brookton

This place is our launching pad for the last day of travel. G, our house sitter, was kind enough to stay an extra night as we had originally planned to arrive home last night. We’ve been enjoying the journey and the small villages on this Great Southern Highway. It is so quiet compared with Albany Highway, without the anger and pushiness of drivers there.

The humidity was very high when we arrived and we used the airconditioning for a while. We walked around the oval admiring the clouds.

Overnight things shifted and we switched off the fan, closed the window next to the bed and brought out the doona. It’s quite cool this morning.

The caravan park is a council run park, with a discount for seniors, so we only paid $26 for the night for water and power, plus the ensuite style showers. Very nice! We can go back to free camping when the weather is cooler. There are quite a few options down this highway.
