TITLE: The Bold Lines Join in Perth!
IN SHORT: A big day on the road to get to Perth. First stop, Geraldton, the largest town between Perth and Darwin and the first time I’d seen a set of traffic lights in 24 days. Sandy Cape was up next for some sand-boarding, though mine was a somewhat wary attempt – no one wanted to be the 3rd casualty!
Injury free we headed to Jurien Bay for lunch and on to the Nambung National Park to check out the Pinnacles Desert. Thousands of limestone pillars rise up from the yellow desert floor and we wandered amongst them for an hour or so. It’s kind of a shame that a loop road runs in and around these eroded relics. I have a photo of a lovely new Toyota Landcruiser posing alongside these ancient structures. Don’t let this deter you though, seeing this unique landscape for yourself is a great experience.
We hit Perth just before 5, I loitered out front of the city train station with my bags while I waited for my cousin to get through traffic. From there we headed out Fremantle way, my base for the next week. After washing away the last 10 days of travelling, my cousin, her husband and their 4 year old son took ‘Aunty Bridget’ out for dinner to Little Creatures in Fremantle. Thank you all for a great night!
My own room! Ahh! Zzz…
TIP: Wherever you are… be there.
