Aug 25, 2016 - York

Thursday August 26 York After a slow, seedy start we returned to my sister’s place to collect the van and headed out for York – a short drive through the range. The countryside is very green as there has been quite a lot of rain. York was the first inland town to be settled in WA and has some lovely old buildings. Apparently on weekends it becomes very busy with day trippers looking for a country escape – on a Thursday it is very quiet! Thank goodness for a powered site at the Mt Bakewell Van Park – there was quite a chill in the air – so...

Thankfully we had started early so not too hot and ready for lunch when we got back to carpark. Very few people around but did get chatting to great bunch of Aussies over picnic lunch and they set us on right path north, heading for Cervantes & Pinnacles. We had a...
