Location: Dwellingup, WA, Australasia

MapWell we were going to leave about 9.30 am and have an easy trip down th Dwellinup - as we all know, the best plans ..... Apart from taking longer to pack last minute things, the dogs decided that they did not enjoy the previous trip to Jurien Bay and that barleys, no more. Well, this really put a spanner in the works as we had promised the Swan Caravan Club we would go and here we are stuck. We decided (after they really showed us they did not want to go) we would leave them behind and so we gave them bones and extra food and off we went. Well, so we thought but the gate again proved to be a problem getting through and we were stuck, a bit scared to go forward and even backward. Luckily a passer by stopped, offered some help and was very experienced and had the van doing whatever he wanted and got us out. Hooray. The rest of the way was very uneventful and we arrived mid afternoon to a beautiful part of the country.
Met all the members of the caravan club, enjoying a great happy hour/s in front of camp fire and this was nice but it was bitterly cold there. Next day we wissed about town and surrounds, looking about a bit but much rain about. Back to caravan park not long before next happy hour. Next day went to Nanga and Frank Baden Powell sites in the forrest. Fabulous places. Really enjoyed walking about there. A shared tea of pastas was enjoyed on this last day of the trip. Seems we have also been travelling with caravan brake on, luckily no damage done there. Nice trip back home, although one of the legs/levellers was half hanging down for some of the way.
