On The Road South

Cooper asked if I was going to blog while on holidays…My Mum backed him up so here it is…

The day started with an abrupt stop barely out of the town boundary when a big kangaroo decided to step infront of my car, holiday almost ended there.

(This one is for size comparison, this is a tiny kangaroo)

I learnt that if the first overwidth is still making its way across the bridge with a bank of trucks waiting patiently, you have enough time to go through New Norcia (maybe a little above the speed limit) and get out the other side infront of the second escort…however the planned toilet stop had to be postponed until Bindoon.

I detoured into Serpentine Falls for a look where it was just me & another couple so basically had the place to myself but there was no way I was taking a dip.



Took a few little detours, stopped in a parking bay for lunch and ended up walking the wall at Harvey Dam.


I eventually made it to Collie where I’m spending the next couple of nights, took a walk around town before relaxing at the Caravan Park.


(Wouldn’t let me take this back to the Caravan Park when I decided I didn’t want to walk back up the hill)

Whose idea was it to go camping down south at this time of year???? It’s not even 7pm & I’m freezing!!!!!

And like half his relatives... I guess you've worked out where we spent our day so I don't need to tell you about it.....

Ok we spent the day with Passions of Paradise (fully reccomend them to, they were great) cruising the Great Barrier Reef. We stopped at Hastings & Michaelmas Cay (a sand bird island) for snorkels. Amazing is the world, a beautiful underwater garden that words can't describe so these pics will do....
