Hey, did you see the extra photos we recently uploaded? A bit mismatched to our blog but we're working on that! 😊
From Coral Bay, we had to get on the move towards Port Hedland for a 6 week nursing job starting July 7th. We drove north towards Exmouth and 'dropped' the trailer off at Bullara Station were we were to stay for a couple of nights. We continued on to Exmouth for a visit and to catch up with our postal vote paperwork. We decided to send it off return mail so much of our visit to Exmouth will be remembered for working out how to correctly witness and fill out postal vote forms. A novel memory for Megan for her first time voting. We returned to Bullara that evening. An awesome blend of a working cattle property combined with country hospitality - a sizeable camp ground with camp kitchen, showers, laundry..... lots of people to socialise with around the campfire and kitchen ....Friday night camp sausage sizzle....and a walk to nearby sandhills. We drove through the property to Exmouth gulf for a fishing expedition - only the midges were biting :-(. Crossed paths with an impressive goanna on the way back to camp - he stopped still long enough for a good photo as you can see. Plenty of cattle along the way too. They're really enjoying the new green growth after recent rain. The rain has been good for the cattle but if it hadn't come we would have landed right in time for the muster. As it is, that has been delayed so the cattle will be stronger and put on some condition. These station stays are great though they're as expensive as a caravan park so not on our regular to do list. We'd prefer to get a job working on a station for a while. Could have stayed here for longer than 2 nights but Port Hedland awaits!
