Our day started lazing in bed catching up on facebook etc, only to have Ted and Jean doing a lap of the bus yelling for us to ‘Get out of Bed’. We were up and going by 8.30am. The scenery certainly was changing, to flat plains, with either no trees or very low shrubs. Down the road we passed Jean and Ted, gave them a toot. We touched base and caught up at the Pardoo

The caravan parks are full so the Port Hedland council have set this up to cater for all the grey nomads heading north, south and everywhere in between. What a brilliant idea. Geraldton, come on!!! Port Hedland did well out us, groceries, beer & wine, fuel and a spare ...
