Stranded...... Sort of

I'd love to have lovely photos to show but at the moment the only view is of a caravan park at Merridale (260klms from Perth).
Last Tuesday our car let us down and we are still waiting for it to be fixed. It's 2 years old and we have had the same problem, faulty clutch, before.
Very frustrating but it could have happened in a worse area so for that I am thankful.
The positives are 1) lots of stitching and 2) lots of exercise walking

Across the Nullabor

I found the drive really interesting. Everything was green from recent rain. Amazing scenery in South Australia, fantastic sunsets, wildlife (dingos howling, skippy and heaps of birds), meeting nice people, interesting conversations on the cb, pedestrian crossings in the middle of no where (really markings for the Royal Flying Doctor) all made the trip.
By the way, I have been getting a little stitching done. I must remember to take photos. Sharyn:)

Back on the Eyre....

We are at the end of the Eyre Peninsular at Ceduna, but back on the Internet air. No reception for a few days and now lots of blogs to read, yah.
We can see why people continue to visit this peninsular year after year, it's lovely.

Leave for the Nullabor drive tomorrow. Sharyn:)

After alot of umming and arhing hubbie has gone to try his luck at crabbing.    Sharyn :)

Eyre Peninsular

Spent a couple of days in Mount Remarkable National Park, absolutely beautiful. My hubbie was well and truly surprised by a giant goanna. Hundreds of galas and kookaburras.
We are camping at Cape Lowly on the Eyre Peninsular. It looks out on the Spencer Gulf. Fantastic view. I don't think I would like to live here though with the neighbours being a oil and gas refinery. But apparently the fishing is good.
