wednesday 21st september

just remembering the final 2 days before we left albany robbie spent out with landy andy in his boat doing a spot of fishing. on the first day they were out they had a visitor, a 5 metre white pointer which circled the boat for about 10 minutes, had a little bite at the prop and then moved on with no damage done:

on the way home the boys were chatting to someone who obviously passed their story on because the next day they were all over the news.
today we decided to be tourists, so after the washing was done, even tourists need to do the housework occasionally, we headed off for cape naturaliste lighthouse. once again it was windy with showers and i swear we almost got blown off the viewing platform. unfortunately it was not a good day for whale watching so no whales were seen today, we thoroughly enjoyed the lighthouse though:
after a coffee and snack we moved on down the road to ngilgi cave which was extraordinary and amazing and just a tad too warm for climbing up and down so many steps. i never thought i would ever go down into a cave so there is one more new experience to add to my list:

once we were outside again robbie even found some beautiful flowers to photograph:

we were fairly hungry by now so we headed into dunsborough looking for food and found the bakery, the food was very nice but i don't think they wanted us to sit down and eat as they started packing up around us, it would probably put me off going back there.
so it will probably be early to bed for me tonight, i think my knees will be swearing at me tomorrow from all the steps in the cave and the lighthouse but worth it i think. tomorrow we will be moving on again.


  1. Hello Therese,
    My Name is Mark Knowles, I’m a journalist for Caravan and Motorhome On Tour Magazine.
    We’re constantly on the lookout for photos of people on the road with their rig to feature in the magazine.
    I was looking at your wonderful blog and saw some of your great pictures and wanted to ask if you could email me some so we could put them in the magazine.
    We’re only too happy to send you a copy of the magazine if we use one of your pictures, and of course, we can attribute the image to you.
    It’s always fun to see yourself and your rig on the pages of the magazine and share your experiences with other RV enthusiasts.
    Right now I’m working on an article about some popular touring routes around Australia, with a focus on where you can find some great free-camping spots.
    I see you have travelled to some of the area’s I’m hoping to feature and would love to get some photos of you at any of the free-camping spots you have stayed at in these regions.
    At the moment I’m hoping to find some pics in areas including northern and outback QLD, Tassie, south-west WA, the Murray River region, NSW south coast and the Eyre Peninsula in SA.
    So if you’ve got any photos of your travels in any of these places, I’d love it if you could send them in.
    Please tell us a bit about where you are and what you liked about the spot as well.
    Like I said, we’re always after photo’s, so even if you don’t have any for these particular places, I was hoping to put you on my contact list and maybe contact you again in the future about upcoming stories.
    We always prefer pics with people in them, whether it’s yourselves or some friends you made along the way, and we also love to see your rig, so please keep that in mind when you’re looking for pics to send.
    Don’t hesitate to contact me for a chat or if you want any more info, I’m always happy to hear from RVers and have a chat about their travels and tips.
    Fell free to pass on this letter to any of your RVing friends as well, I’d like to hear from as many people as possible.
    Please send any photos in the highest quality file size you have, as they will look much better on the printed page, you might have to send them one at a time to get them through.
    Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you and seeing some of your pictures soon.
    Best Wishes,
    Mark Knowles
