November 2022
Week 4


Travelled to Pt Germain and walked the longest wooden pier and tide was out again.  We travelled to Port August and got coffee and petrol and did laundry.  Lost $8 in Laundry machine as door not closed but lady come out and reimbursed us.  Travelled to RV campsite in football club for $8 p/n.  Next morning we did a shop at Coles and went to the Desert Botanical Gardens.  Saw some kangas and then travelled onwards to Kimba with the Big Galah.  Stayed in the free campsite their that had hot showers for $1 and a huge camp kitchen.  Made about $7 dollars from Pokies and that would be our last poker machine playing..  In the morning it was 11 degrees so we headed off to Ceduna and then onwards to the Great Australia Bite.  Travelled to Nullaboor and almost entered a topless bar looking for poker machines.  We continued to a free camp overlooking the Bite.  Next morning we left at 9am and crossed into WA.  Got petrol and took photo of statue of Kanga and threw out our vegetables and honey.  Road are so much better in WA.  Feels warmer and after a long time on the road found a shady spot to camp the night.  Next morning we travelled to Cockle biddy with a population of 8 and saw the caged eagles.  We then travelled to Norseman and it was now 37 Degrees.  Welcome to WA.  We travelled to Scaddan and had a lovely free shower and found a free campsite just off the road.  A bus parked next to us.  We woke up at 5am and decided to travel to Esperance bakery but pies not as good as Handorf’s.  Se we travelled to Lake Grace and during my journey I left the vent blowing air in.  Well we hit a long stretch of dirt road thanks to Google not identifying dirt from tar and the van ended up with red dust inside.  This was a sign that we are heading home.  As cannot sleep on dirty dusty bed.  Got to Farm Tractor museum and had coffee and then travelled to Newdegate, nice free shower here.  We travelled back to Perth and arrived in the afternoon and slept in our dustless bed.  Next morning I mowed the grass and cancelled the lawn mower guy so saved $50.
