On the road again .............

We by passed Perth as we have visited there previously and stopped at New Norcia. A very interesting Benedictine monastic town with an active monastry. DH and I went on the walking tour visiting the schools, church and other buildings and heard all about the history of the original missionary monks, the schools for the aboriginal children (yes, some of the stolen generation), the European schools, bakery (yummy bread) and the hotel (had a norcia ale after the tour).
Travelled to Jurien Bay yesterday in terrible wind and some rain. No power at the caravan park meaning no hot shower, bummer. This morning we went to the Pinnacles, fascinating, and to the Crayfish farm which was interesting as well. Crayfish on the menu for dinner tonight, yum. Sharyn:)

Wow Sharyn. The visit to the schools churches etc would have been such an amazing time.
Looks like you are still having a great time away.

Great to see you on the move again. The pinnacles look fascinating. I don't want to sound critical but do you realise that your photos look a bit blurry. Are you holding the button down halfway to focus before clicking all the way?
