Day 82 – 24 May 2015
Today we drove to Perth having had a great time at Elachbutting Rock. We will certainly try and return there again. Our first stop of the morning was Bonnie Rock. This rock has a huge water
tank beside it, which is still in use by the locals today. To catch the water the edge of the huge rock has a wall (like a crown) around its sides which channel the rain fall into the enormous tank. While we were there, a huge water tanker pulled up to take away a load.
As we sometimes do, to find interesting places we set the GPS to shortest route. Today we were not disappointed as we drove into Mukinbudin. To our surprise, we found a drive in
theatre. Sadly, it had closed down 2 years ago, but it was still in remarkable condition with projector building, ticket box, speaker stands (some still with speakers) and a screen. So very cool.
As the drive in seemed a little short staffed, I decided to fill in!
I love the above photo – should be titled “I think we will need a longer speaker cord”. And of course – what was on? Our favourite “All 4 Adventure”.
Also during our travels today we came across the cute little dog named Rusty the Tin Dog. He got his name from Tin Dog Creek which is nearby.
Needed a small amount of fuel to ensure we reached Perth, so at Goomalling Caltex, 26l @ $1.369.
Arrived late in Perth at our usual caravan park in, Forrestfield and was positioned besides a big bus for the night.
Day 83 – 25 May 2015
Back in the big city, it was a day spent getting ready for our flights back east.
Occasionally you meet some wonderful people, you just feel you click with, this is true with our big bus (OK I should call it a coach) neighbors. Alan and Eunice were teenage sweethearts, and they are still very much in love today. We had a wonderful happy hour with them, before Eunice whipped up a wonderful dinner.
Day 84 – 26 May 2015
Bags packed and it was time to get Steve off to the airport for his trip home to Brisbane. After saying our goodbyes, I decided to take a trip into Perth to see the shops and also to take in beautiful parklands that overlook Perth. Steve also made sure I had enough fuel do some sightseeing tomorrow (20 litres @ $1.369).
I spent the evening down at my old haunt Scarborough BBQing a hamburger watching the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean.
Day 85 – 27 May 2015 – Day 89 – 31 May 2015
Up early this morning as I was bound for Sydney to visit family and do a little work.
