Morrie and Anne run an orchard, which also produces some pretty good wine. The view from their porch is truly as picturesque as you see anywhere.
After a lovely catch up we decided it was time to test out our camping ability with the troopy, it had driven beautifully on the run down. We headed out through Nannup to a lovely old abandoned rail siding known as Mambray Pool. It is very isolated and has a dubious reputation as being the location where the love affair between the Federal Polly Jim Cairns and his secretary Junie Morosi, first came to light. The occasion was a hippie love in held at the site (in fact you can still see the mud holes near the bank) and an on the ball reporter spotted the two cavorting nude among the revellers. It is believed that it is still legal to parade naked at this spot, but given that for the two days we were there no one else arrived I guess it matters little if one does or does not.
