Mar 17, 2016 - Thursday 17th March

Looking at were we put the chicken leg last night, I'm glad to see it was all gone bone and all. We are heading to Dongara today the weather is a lot cooler at the moment we've had a few drops of rain. When you travel like this, your always on the lookout for some where to empty the loo, fill up with water and cheapest fuel, in which we found all three in Moora. After emptying and filling 𿘊 It was coffee time walking around we found a cafe called Kumquat May which I thought was a clever name, after grabbing a coffee and walking out there...

Mar 16, 2016 - Wednesday 16 march

It's 6.30 and the sun is shining through the bus window, it was a much cooler night, which was a relief from the ones we've had, it's going to be a pleasant day of just 29 degrees. After a lovely breakfast and a hot shower we drove to see the ruins of the old apiary where the monks kept their beehives, walking there was a battle between us and the thousands of meat ants who continued to climb up into my shoe and bite....Ahhh! The joys of nature. We're staying an extra night here as there is so much to see, yesterday we did the tour but you...

Mar 14, 2016 - Monday march 14th

Here we are at Meriden, woken up by the sound of black cockatoos. Time to have breakfast, mind you it's only 5.45 and the coolest of the long hot Summer day. We looked up a laundromat to take our duck feather mattress protector for a wash as my darling husband decided to have a glass of red wine last night and guess where it ended up? Yes ! A whole glass lol,when we got there we soon discovered it was an industrial laundry and they wash for you that means it might be a bit more expensive however it will come back clean and dry as I've...

Nature was calling me at 4.30 this morning after that I was laying in bed trying to get back to sleep, in the distance a rooster was crowing, then a voice whispered in my ear would you like me to make you a cuppa of tea it was 5.30am the start of our day. Wow! I wasn't expecting a breakfast like this,my gorgeous husband made me not only a cup of tea but eggs benedict salmon and all,decorated by a tiny piece of lettuce the only greenery we had. We didn't even do the dishes straight away,as it was going to be another hot day we thought out...

Aug 5, 2012 - Sunday @ Merredin

Leisure day in Merredin This is a lovely little town; the van park is the best we have been in in WA with huge sites and helpful staff. This morning saw us venture out to Nungarin to the Markets where we did buy some lollies of local manufacture a damned site cheaper than the lolly shop in Boulder, now I have some boiled sweets to offer all the little kiddies we meet enroute…. Also saw our first WA Wildflowers, too early in the season though for a spectacular display but the Wattle is out and it looks great. Assured there is a great display...

Aug 4, 2012 - Some time with an old Boiler

Departed Kalgoorlie at a sensible hour this morning heading for Merredin. Stopped for an hour at Pump Station No.8. We had an appointment to see the setup here and so after finding it duly arrived, pressed the button and “Roy” our guide and raconteur/interlocutor came walking along from his lodgings with his Labrador. He unlocked and gave us the tour. No 8 Pump Station is the most easterly of the original eight steam powered pump stations, the last in the line pumping water from Mundaring Weir to Kalgoorlie. Today a No 8 remains almost...

May 7, 2009 - Eucla to Merredin

Clearing cloud, warm 22o A little cool this morning, but it has been a glorious day, warm in the sun and pleasant in the shade. The park has the usual drive thru’s. Sites and the roadways are indistinguishable and not a great deal of room lengthwise, but OK. We could hear the sound of machinery into the early evening coming from the mines. We headed off about 8:10am in the direction of Kalgoorlie, not that we’re intending to stop here. The road is much narrower and undulating, so I decreased my speed to about 90kph to start with, gradually...
