We have arrived in Bussleton only to find out that the jetty that ive been wanting to see is closed for restoration! Couldnt believe it - but in true holiday fashion John and i cracked a couple of jokes about it to the tourist information person and caravan park lady and arent too stressed - will just have to add it to our next trip around oz :)

Yesterday we checked out Cape Le Grand National Park - absolutely beautiful beaches with the whitest sand we have seen so far - was amazing.  Then in the evening we went to the only hotel in Esperance and watched the union (and for the first time we found a pub that showed something other than AFL and there was actually some people that watched it with us as well).

We got up nice and early this morning and drove for another bunch of miles (and miles and miles - 733 kms to be precise, bringing the total kms for 4 days to 2697!) and saw diverse landscape again - but the saddest thing was how dry some areas were and how empty their dams are - you can truly see how bad the droubt has been in places like this.  We also got to go through Wagin and see the Big Ram which was very exciting.  We also went through Collie which has a massive opencut mine on the main road into town which was cool to see.

We have riden the bikes through town this afternoon and are now settled for the night (big sleep due) and then we are off to the National Parks tomorrow (possibly no reception for a few days) the beaches look fantastic there and lets face it - the camping is cheap!  Thats after we go and see the 200 meters of Jetty that we can get to :(

Some food stats - dearest block of chocolate - $10.60 (Roadhouse on the Nullarbor) Sausage Roll - $4.80 (Roadhouse on the Nullarbor) Schooner - $7.20 (Esperance)
