Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Perth-Melbourne part 3

Here we go again!

Before taking off we went shopping in Coles.

image

Next to Kalgoorlie is Coolgardie, just to confuse things a little…so we passed there too.

image

Don’t ask…we just don’t know what it is…and why it is on top of a building…

image

Today we will start a long drive and eventually drive over the Nullarbor. Our first stop was Norseman where we jumped in the pool they had there, had lunch, switched drivers and took off to reach Balladonia Roadhouse. This is also the first time we met the two Estonian guys travelling parallel to us for the rest of the the time on the same kind of car as us.

image

We picked a little spot where we hung up our pretty fairy lights and had a nice night. Though anywhere we wanted to put our tent the ground looked like this…ants…

image

image

Next morning the signs tell us we will se camels…mhm…

image

Let’s just go on that longest stretch of road shall we?

image

Trust me when i say it is pretty booooring when a road is thaaat straight and there are barely any other cars…and no camels either…
Eucla is the border town…town? Well station point where you need to quarantine fruits you have from WA…

image

Or just take a picture of the signs as usual 🙂

image

image

Now the 4 travelling backpackers were a tiny bit clueless coming to what time it is in the future….in South Australia. So we just didn’t care. I mean we are in the middle of nowhere, who cares what time it is?
We are still told we will se some camels…

image

I was the only one out of the car to take the picture with the sign, yes I know, such a tourist! But the guys decided to leave me behind…

image

A car came from the other direction, but they weren’t interested in stopping either…they just pushed their horn..hey to you too! Backpackers! Gotta live thema!

image

In the red centre were camel signs…but no camels. So i started thinking these signs must be old..
Below you can see wild grapes. They grow on small bushes.

image

image

image

Tada! Camels! Saw them in two different spots! First time 4 of them and then another 8! Wooohoo! Wild camels! Yeah baby! It sure confused me a bit though. Didn’t feel like I was in this continent…

image

image

It was getting dark so the pictures aren’t the sharpest. Also saw a fox and something white that was hopping around, but too far for any of us to know what it was…
We finally find a place to sleep. Scenic Lookout it’s called. I have never ever felt the finest sand as I did on this place. Everywhere. As it is sooo fine it can go everywhere and it’s not easy to get off. It did not help that the wind was like crazy! Look how we attached the tent! Shovel, jerry can, car!

image

The wind was strong since we were right here. Next stop Antarctica!

image

image

Fuel stop for us and the car in Yalata

image

Don’t know why the light was on…

image

Reached Ceduna where we did some shopping and had dinner.
For the Greek readers:

image

In Ceduna we met the Estonians again. We knew where we were sleeping this night and told them to go there too.
Perlubie Beach

image

Toooo shallow…we never reached a deep spot. It all went up above our knees…not even to the thighs…

Found a perfect spot to set camp! We also met an English couple here and we’ve seen these guys earlier along the road too. So we all camped here.

From the ‘front’

Next morning. Tide is low!

image

There were other people there, but they lived fancy

image

Today I want ice cream!

image

Port Augusta is our stop, camping next to the river. The Estonian guys told the reception we were coming and saved us a spot next to them 🙂

image

image

Port Augusta is a small town. We went by a national park to go to a look out and then continued to some historical sights.

image

Kyanaka Ruins

image

image

image

Up there in the cave where Aboriginal art. Some descriptions were given to you before so you know what it is you see. I remembered one…
Another one for the Greek readers 🙂

image

Hancock Lookout was a beautiful spot!

image

image

image

So where do we sleep tonight?

image

Kitchen with disco lights!

image

Good night for now!
