Gave up on sun….chase Wildflowers instead!

Due to some things not working correctly we headed back to Geraldton for a week and stopped in a van park near town. Then we left and re-visited Cliff Head as we like this campsite. The weather beat us again so we left and went inland towards Eneabba again but camped at Lake Indoon. Found a lovely sheltered spot away from the day picnic area.

We spent our time taking walks around the lake and photographing heaps of orchids. We enjoyed cooking up feasts on our fire pig and I practiced my scone making. We only had a short time left on our ‘Sun Journey’ so we headed to the Wildflower areas we missed last year. Coorow Van Park was our next stay for a couple of nights. We took a drive to Carnamah, Three Springs and Perenjori. We headed towards the Rabbit Proof Fence Road to view more everlastings and they were magnificent. We went to a Talc Mine Lookout, Camel Soak (rock) and back via Latham to view more orchids and wreath flowers at a gravel pit nearby.

We had the Ford booked in for a repair in Perth so we headed to Bindoon again – did I mention they have a great Bakehaus!! After a couple of days we did a final run out to Wongan Hills (where we had a problem with van springs) then to Cadoux, Koorda & Bencubbin. We visited the Pergandes Sheep Yards (all made from granite slabs), Mt Marshall, Trayning, Kellerberin to Shackleton. It boasts the smallest bank in WA and Steves Sculptures. For the night we stopped at Kwolyin Camp, another new camp area with new amenities in a now obsolete town.

Then it was back to the wheatbelt farm to prepare for doing hay harvest and grain at end of September. Due to wet weather it has been delayed for a week, hence me catching up on our travels!
