Jul 19, 2016 - Coorinjinna pool

Another day much the same as yesterday doing nothing much at all! We had the corellas for company again and Ian went off with John to go fishing at about 1.30pm. I went over to chat with his wife Lorna while they were away and had just gotten back to our van when they returned empty handed, Just as well another of our immediate neighbour's had come back from fishing in the meantime and had given me 2 fillets of small shark he had caught in the morning-so more fresh fish for tea! We took the dogs for another long walk before tea, then just...

Jul 18, 2016 - Coorinjinna Pool

Neither of us could get particularly motivated to pack up and get back on the road this morning, so after lots of procrastination we decided to stay another day. The wind had died right down and the day was very pleasantly warm. Basically we didn’t do much at all today other than sit around camp reading, crocheting (me obviously) and sleeping! We did take the dogs for another really long walk in the afternoon, but that was about it. We had a flock of corella’s keep us company for most of the day- there were about 4 groups- 3 in different...

Jul 17, 2016 - Coorinjinna Pool (20k from Whim Creek)

This stop has turned out to be one of those totally unexpected gems! Weather wise, today has been almost perfect. The wind had dropped to a breeze earlier this morning to be almost non-existent this evening. The sun has shone all day, but the temperature has probably been no more than 24-25° C with no humidity -perfect! There are not many vans here- once again the 14k of dirt road has put the majority off coming here - their loss! The road in yesterday was probably the smoothest gravel road you could ever drive on, even the track down to...

Jul 16, 2016 - Port Headland to Coorinjinna Pool (20k from Whim Creek)

The wind was blowing an absolute gale again this morning with dust everywhere. We had debated where we were going next last night - options being the loop to Tom Price open cut mine and Karijini National Park and back onto the highway further down the coast, or just follow the coast. We decided to stick to the coast for a couple of reasons, one because I would really like to see the ‘Staircase to the Moon’ phenomena that happens in this part of the world at full moon, which is next week, and two, because of the inability to have dogs in...

Sep 5, 2013 - Balla Balla Inlet at Whim Creek

Yesterday we decided to take a drive up to Balla Balla Inlet which is just 20kms from Whim Creek (!!!)Nothing at Whim Creek apart from a closed pub DAMN. Anyway, on the way up there we had a slightly oversize truck that we had to wait to pass us (see the photos) and they weren't going that slow either. Then after about 120kms we got to Balla Balla Inlet for some fishing, as the tide was on the way in,the only problem was MUD and more MUD to walk through after an hour as the tide immediately started going back out. After a few hours we...
