Crossing the Nullabour: Day 8

Coolgardie to Norseman March 25th, 2019

Today is our wedding anniversary- we think the 30th. We thought of having lunch at the nice pub here in Norseman, having arrived at lunchtime, but we also wanted to get washing done and the Visitor Information Centre recommended the roadhouse. We had hamburgers while waiting for our washing to be done. Very romantic!

We have our last supermarket opportunity here in Norseman and hit the shop after a little rest. We were looking forward to the campsite where we have stayed before, but things have changed and although we have free overnight camping we are corralled in a field near the recreation centre, rather than being in an area with tall trees overlooking a salt lake.

We were the last to leave the camping spot in Coolgardie this morning, but that happens often when we are touring. We try to not feel like laggards as we leave at around 9:00 a.m. Overnight was chilly, but not cold enough yet for our winter doona stored in the overhead cab of our van.

The drive down to Norseman is quite lovely as through the Great Western Woodlands. The road was in better shape than Great Eastern Highway as well. Being a few days on the road we drive faster and feel more at ease.

I had one opportunity to take photos at a stop along the way.
