Where do I start??? part 1

Sorry that I have been missing in action for the last month or so.... BUT alot has happened in real life...

I forgot to tell you all that we were heading on holdays on August 22nd... We left at 6am and headed from Exmouth Western Australia via car to Geraldton Western Australia. (a distance of approximately 800km) It takes approx 3-3.5hrs of driving to hit our nearest town Carnarvon... and from there was unchartered territory as we had previously flown between Perth and Exmouth. (on that note after driving it - I am ALWAYS FLYING!)

This is the road in between Carnarvon and Geraldton.... Long straights of desert sands....


More straights....

First sign of civilisation - wooo hooo a roadhouse :) This is Wooramel Roadhouse. We bought much needed coffee here and stretched legs.

Some pretty wildflowers on the side of the highway......

We drove past the next roadhouse (as no one needed to empty their bladders) which was the overlander... and stopped at the billabong.... here we had lunch and coffee.

We arrived in Geraldton around 3pm... We were very glad to get out of the car and into our accomadation. I was VERY disappointed in our accomadation... we thought that we had purchased 2 nights in a chalet.... it ended up being 2 nights in a beach shack :( Very rustic!! On the Monday morning Andre had a phone job interview so the kids and I hung out at the shopping centre till he was done :)

We started the drive to Perth.... Lets continue this in Part 2 as the photos are not behaving themselves tonight :)
