Left the trip along the flinders ranges and drove straight across the eyre peninsula past Iron Knob, (a hill of iron ore) Kimba, Baird Bay and Port Labatt sealion beach. We arrived at our beachside campsite on 23rd Dec for 10 nts until 2nd Jan 09. We had a happy time at this place, paid for a hotel christmas dinner on christmas day and met lots of people (mainly from west australia) travelling through to or from the east. Xmas day and boxing day we had the company of around 20 members of the western australian 'sunseekers' nudist club. It wasn't obvious who they were since they were disguised with clothing but we couldn't have found a better bunch to share 2 days with.
It was difficult to communicate home on christmas evening (midday uk time) as the 1public telephone was out of order and we were 2 miles out of town. The broadband signal was very weak so we had only uk mobile phones to use (another 80 for virgin + tmobile). It was sad to be away from family at this time but 30 degrees of sunshine by the beach helped to make it bearable.
New Years eve was pleasant as we invited those around us to meet by the motorhome and share the evening. It was quite cold for a change and we were all dressed in winter wear by midnight when we went to the top of the dunes to see in 2009. Once 2nd Jan arrived we had bought Emmas plane ride to Perth so we set off for the long journey across the 'Nullarbor' to Western Australia and discover the area before she arrived on the 12th Jan.
