Where I stayed
Then I made a quick stop at the shopping centre before taking off towards Roebourne.
The journey was less than boring even though the countryside had little to offer for several kms.
Then it went from barren to mountains and rocks and mountains and glorious colours, amazing how it just keeps on changing
There were hundreds of brightly coloured 4x4 utes and vans that kept roaring past me eager to get to their next job at the mines, flags flapping at the end of long poles
I lunched at a lovely spot by the river, one that actually had water in it, rare in this neck of the woods...
After lunch is was another long haul to Roebourne where I was pleasantly surprised by this old town, first thing you see when you turn the bend is the original jail, which now serves as the visitor's centre. Apparently Roebourne is the home of several well know Aboriginal artists...doesn't mention which ones in the brochure...Once gain I missed out on going to Dampier as there are no van parks that allow dogs, guess that's the price I will be paying all along this "trip".
I am nestled into a "freebie" again tonight having spent an enormous amount today of petrol. The road was long with nothing to see in between so I just kept on mov'n. I'm hoping to reach the ocean again soon as I feel the need of fresh air and especially a place for the dogs to run.
p.s. I'm not in Onslow but once again I can't pin point my position so that's the next town about 120kms south west from here.
