Last driving day (Freemantle, Western Australia)

Journal entry for Saturday 3rd Aug, 2019 (day 159, kms 151)

Today was the last driving day of this adventure. Tonight we camped in a caravan park in Freemantle just south of Perth City. We will be in this caravan park or a nearby hotel until Sunday 11th when the next short non-driving leg of this adventure starts. Our time in Freemantle will be mostly chores such as cleaning our faithful troopy and catching up on family business. But we do plan one sightseeing day while in this area and will report on that when it happens. to read the full post

Journal entry for Friday 2nd Aug, 2019 (day 158, kms 224)

As we left our camping spot this morning we happened to see this Sea Eagle sitting atop a post. The scenic highight of today was a visit to The Pinnacles at Nambung National Park where one can walk and/or drive amongst these strange limestone blocks poking up out of the yellow sand. to read the full post

Sheep shears (Cliff Head Campsite, Western Australia)

Journal entry for Thursday 1st Aug, 2019 (day 157, kms 230)

It finally dawned on us this morning that the countryside has changed over the past two days and we are now back in green country where there are wide farm fields of green and flowing water. The deserts and the dry salty coastal plains are no more. Unfortunately this change also signals that our adventure is winding down. to read the full post

Pink Lake and Hutt River (Hutt River Province, Western Australia)

Journal entry for Wednesday 31st Jul, 2019 (day 156, kms 160)

We spent a little time this morning in the town of Kalbarri. This gave Nina a chance to complete her daily walk (and achieve the necessary 10,000 steps) and allowed me to do my morning physio exercises. There after we travelled down the coast south of Kalbarri, which has some nice coastal scenery and is part of the Kalbarri National Park. to read the full post

The Murchison River (Muchison House Station, Western Australia)

Journal entry for Tuesday 30th Jul, 2019 (day 155, kms 207)

Today was spent in the Kalbarri National Park which has the Murchison River and its associated gorges as its key attraction. Somewhat to our surprise the Murchison had flowing water, we found out from talking to a park worker that this is a result of 6 inches of rain in June. In addition a lot of flowers were blooming including the red flowered flame trees in the photos. to read the full post
