Week Two

Giddaye from Albany,
We left Norseman at dawn and went via the bush on some wandering bush track through the scrub to get to Wave Rock - and it was worth it - not only to see the wheat cropping areas, salt pans - dozens of them from a few metres wide to kilometres and all white with salt crystal or water bases - but also for the rock itself - an amazing natural phenomenon. Miles of rolling hills and low level areas of salt pans, white banked dams, ring-necked parrots and still more crows!
Note Dad standing at the base of the wave.
Albany is a thriving port town of 18000 with many shops and spectacular ocean views - maybe one for you tomorrow!
An early night and then - on the road again!!!

I'm back!! With Phil Dodd, as Dad flew back to NSW yesterday. Then Phil and I left Perth after a small detour, unintentional, so we ended going up the coast road, sorry track, all 4WD and interesting including 5 kms of beach and then an outrageous sunset at the campsite.

The morning was amazingly clear for the Pinnacles and we only spent an hour there - we chewed up an enormous amount of data before we headed north again. Rain squalls hammered us as we visited the WA Museum in Geraldton - excellent shipwrecks display, and then onto Kalbarri seeing the pink lake and 100m high coastal cliffs on the way. My road kill collection grows with a marsupial mouse and western grey roo today.

John McGregor has done a great job in putting each day of the trip on www.lenzell.com when he is not suffering too much envy. He has built both my websites with minimal input from me - awesome stuff - see him at the little frog at the bottom of my site pages. Or www.websitemarketing.com.au

I hope all goes well with you.
