Esperance was a beautiful spot - coastline is a pretty picture and the water is a beautiful aqua-ish blue. The sand is pure white and there are plenty of rocks to climb. Caravan Park was inundated with white tail black cockatoos - loud screeches and lots of falling branches from their hive of activity. We found 'Dome' - got our first coffee rewards card for WA:-)) We left yesterday, travelled further west along the coast and pulled up at Mason bay camp. Gee whiz - the WA bush loos are a step up. Big spacious tin sheds with enough space to swing a cat - this one has just recently been built so seems like we've checked into 4 star accommodation. No deadly pongs in this campsite. :-). Even has a fold down change table - not that we are in need. Rory's whip cracking prowess is growing by the day and this morning he gave Mum a lesson. Yes managed a few loud cracks.....and also a few welts to the back of my legs:-). Drove into Hopetoun this afternoon - nice small community and managed to find a good coffee! A bit of a theme here.... Also, hot chips have become a regular snack as an economical option for filling a growing 15 year old young man. We could publish the Aussie guide for good hot chips - a couple of medal worthy snack bars along the Nullarbor. Due in Perth on 2nd May to do the final component for registering as a nurse in WA - practical manual handling session. Lots to see in the SW corner yet. - will keep you posted.
Oh, Sharon, thanks for your blog comments - didn't get to Lucky Bay. - dog on board. Heaps of other beaut options though.... keep your suggestions coming. Pick up lots of tips from people we meet along the way and tips are really helpful. Bye for now - bumpy road back to camp and signal dwindling.
