    South: Ravensthorpe to Stirling Ranges National Park

    I didn’t want to leave Ravensthorpe this morning without getting a photo of the artwork on the silos. So, we parked on a side road and I walked back a few hundred metres to get the shot. They don’t appear to realise that there needs to be a viewing place where people can easily get […]

    South: Esperance to Gibson’s Soak

    Today was cloudy and misty, the sort of weather that happens close to the sea. I noticed yesterday that a coffee van parks outside of the caravan park, so after having a shower I walked to the gate for a coffee to have with breakfast. Yesterday evening, with the Winnie once more on park water […]

    South: Esperance

    We had a restful day today. We were able to get two more nights at the caravan park, but had to move back from our prime position with a view of the ocean to being in the middle of the caravan park. We moved, then took the morning off, reading, in my case, and studying […]

    The featured image is a view of the Stirling Ranges from Chester Pass Road. Yesterday in the evening we went for a walk around the block. There is a replica of the Bluebird and memorial to Donald Campbell. It was quite a lovely evening with no clouds. For some reason I was awake in the […]

    Meckering to Home Base We arrived home at about 1.45 p.m. Safe and sound. The house seems nice, we left it fairly clean and tidy and the dust doesn’t seem to be too bad. We feel a bit disoriented. The Subaru started up first thing and Stephen has taken it for a run. He is […]

    North Road Parking Bay to Meckering We had a good nights sleep and set off at about 9.15 a.m. We stopped briefly to refuel, and then to have morning tea in Kellerberin, and then lunch in Cunderdin. There is parking off the highway near the Pump museum. Stephen spent some time in the museum whilst […]

    Rest Area just East of Eyre Bird Observatory turnoff to Afghan Rock Camping Area Today we went through the ’90 mile straight’ – fairly easy driving today, sunny and not too much wind. We were the last to leave our campsite this morning, but still managed reach our desired campsite. Instead of being just off […]

    Travels with the Winnie: Day 90

    Eucla to Roadside Rest Area (just East of the Eyre Bird Observatory turnoff) This rest area is really named Roadside Rest Area, so what can we do! I did some washing this morning in Eucla, hence all the stuff hanging around. At Eucla, Stephen rang up and discovered that we could have 20 litres of […]
