Sat. 8th June 2019 One of the lessons we are learning from our camping experience, is that you might just as well shift your body clock forward and go to bed early and rise early. Although we’re not currently camping, …

Thur. 6th June 2019 Prior to arriving here, when we’d told Aussies that we will be visiting Port Hedland, we were consistently told “oh, there’s nothing to see in Port Hedland”. How wrong can folk be? Well, we weren’t entirely …

Wed. 5th June 2019 We wake just before 7am to hear our neighbours leave. Blimey, they must have been up early. It had been a very windy night again but knowing from the previous night that the tent can survive …

Mon. 3rd June 2019 As ever when camping, even with face masks and earplugs we still woke early so we’re up at 7am. The downside of the roof tent is that if we want to drive anywhere during the day …

Sun. 2nd June 2019 Morning arrives though you wouldn’t really know it, as our prison cell is windowless (see yesterday’s post for more description). Today is the fateful day, the one we’ve been trying not to think about too much. …

Sat. 1st June 2019 Sorry for the title mum but it seemed appropriate for the metal box we sleep in tonight. We are heading inland to Karijini National Park but it would be a long drive in one day so …
