Day two of the Nullabor Desert

I guess we really only entered the true Nullabor today but not much has really changed in the last two days. The terrain has slowly blended from farmed fields to lightly treed scrub land to desert scrub and bushes. Then the edge fell off and the Southern ocean was there. Much like the Apostle coast the cliffs drop about a hundred feet into the beautiful blue water. No guard rails here so watch your step and where you're driving. There are some designated lookouts along the way but we chose to just pick a set of tracks that headed for the edge and look over. Had the bonus of being the only idiot tourists in danger of falling in! Other than the cliffs and our quick hike down to the water's edge not a lot happens on the desert road. Everyone's trucking along, most not that fast. We average 90-100 kmh and aren't getting passed very often. Last night we stayed at a roadside pull out and neither of us slept very well. We did get to see a pretty good light show and had the opportunity to do a monsoon test on our newly re-waterproofed tent. It did well but we still need a few more coats. It did rain most of the night like some one was hosing us down. Tonight we are staying at the caravan park just inside the S.A. Border. Apparently they have a fruits and veggies check point(and honey of any description) for Western Australia. So rather than toss our newly purchased supplies we're having a feast tonight, tomorrow morning, and a Greek salad for the road(because it's ok if it's a salad of three or more solid veggies and dressing). So tomorrow is the big day, W.A. Bound!
