Di’s Travel Diary

Monday, 31 Aug 2015

MapHi all

We enjoyed the last of our time in southern WA. The drive through the farm land was picturesque. Beautiful countryside, home to dairy, sheep and canola as far as the eye can see at times.

Right turn at Norseman toward the Nullar NOT bor ing at all. Love that drive. There is a roadhouse less than every 200km.

First stop Fraser Range station - a working sheep station. Enjoyed time around the camp fire with other travellers.

Next day Fraser Range to Cocklebiddy.
Cocklebiddy to Nullarbor roadhouse - visited Head of the Bight to see the southern right whales - saw 16.
Nullarbor roadhouse to Penong. A little village with lots of windmills. The last shop for 1000km if heading west. A tiny general store.

Penong to Wudinna today. A delayed start as the man next door was ill. He had had recent heart surgery so that was a concern. After getting a phone order from his GP to give him some medication, he improved but was not well enough to travel in a car so an ambulance was called. We waited till it arrived in case things went pear shaped. Think that was a reminder of my impending return to work.

Mission accomplished we departed late. First pit stop enroute was the oyster bar at Ceduna. I remember last time the oysters had only been out of the water 20 minutes when they were shucked for us. Not sure how long they were out today but they were just as good. 18 down and 2 dozen to go - Yumo!!!

Off to Port Augusta tomorrow to meet up with friends.
Plan to head to Broken Hill on Friday.

Bye for now
