Drove to Hopetoun today and what a lovely drive it was. Lovely countryside and more wildflowers starting to show. Weather gods have been at it again and weather has been fabulous. We are so very lucky once again. Light cloud and around 24 degrees. Perfect for walkies.

Hopetoun is such a lovely seaside town on the shores of Mary Ann Harbour. Still unspoiled.....lovely people. A great get-away from 'tourist' destinations. Our kind of town. Beaches and bays are lovely as is the Fitzgerald National Park. We will definitely visit again and explore what the area has to offer. We were the only caravan in the caravan park - how lucky was that !

Esperance, WA

overcast 22 °C

We had a really pretty drive to Esperance. Wildflowers are becoming more evident. Another week or two and they will really be blooming. It turned out a decent day for the drive as was the whole week we stayed in Esperance. We had just about all the seasons this week. A little rain, windy, fine, calm - but not cold at any stage which we found surprising. We were expecting it to be really chilly but didn't need the heater once.

Esperance is as pretty as ever and we did plenty of walking around. We decided to stay at a different caravan park this time and stayed at the Acclaim Pine Grove Caravan Park (formerly the Crocker). What a great week. The people in the park are so friendly and accommodating and it's only around 3km from town. Also it's not a large park and was extremely quiet. Very restful (especially for 2 old fogies like us LOL!).

We could easily have stayed longer, but the pull of family is getting stronger. We must wend our way towards home.

Fraser Range, WA

sunny 24 °C

Another long drive today and we decided to stay at the caravan park at Fraser Range Sheep Station, mid way between Norseman and Balladonia. What a lovely stay. Great sites in a beautiful setting of the Fraser Ranges. They do tours of the sheep station for a fee. We wanted to go but they need a minimum of 4 people and we were the only ones interested. It would have been very interesting.

Didn't have to cook either, as Sunday night was roast night and we enjoyed a meal of Roast Beef with all the trimmings and a delicious pavlova for dessert. We sat with a really nice couple from Mildura and had a very pleasant evening. A good nights sleep and carry on to Esperance in the morning. Will spend a week there, then who knows where. Don't have to be home until the 1st October, so we have plenty of time to pick and choose.

Had a long drive to Eucla. Now that we are slowly heading back home we decided to cross the Nullarbor in a couple of days. Since we both drive it's no hardship. Weather turned out really much better than we expected. Drizzled a little for the first hour or so, then periods of overcast and sunny. Luckily it wasn't windy - no dreadful headwinds or cross winds this leg of our trip. By the time we reached Eucla it was 29 Deg and sunny. Who would have thought.

Decided to stay in Streaky Bay in SA again. Fabulous few days. Weather was intermittently fine and drizzly - not cold as we expected. Probably because it wasn't windy. Had a wonderful stay once again. Really love it here.
