    Van Life

    April 29, 2017 in Australia

    Yesterday we picked up a rented camper van from Perth that we have for the next 56 days until we need to return it to Darwin. After admin, checking the van over and food shopping we didn't get started til late afternoon. However, we managed to get as far as Kojonup (300km) by sunset but left the unpacking until daylight this morning. Already it feels completely different from the East coast as soil seems to have been replaced by red dust/sand. Looking forward to settling into van life for the next eight weeks. We got to Albany today and after a quick look around town and lunch we went up to the viewpoint and Anzac memorial at Mount Clarence. It has amazing views over the Princess Royal Harbour and King George Sound. It's where all the ships carrying 42,000 soldiers, from both NZ and Australia, left for the war in Europe (WW1) but were diverted to Egypt. Booked into a camping holiday park and have enjoyed the pool and spa this evening, although trying to convince ourselves that it's not our scene!Read more

    Albany

    September 25, 2017 in Australia

    What a beautiful place! We stayed 4 nights at Albany and were lucky to have 2 days of sunshine before the weather turned foul and it was extremely windy and rainy.

    While the weather was good we checked out the Natural Bridge, the Gap, the historic whaling station, blow holes, the National Anzac Centre and the Desert Mounted Corps memorial. The National Anzac Centre was awesome and we spent many hours here.

    We hunkered down in the van for the following 2 days as the weather closed in. We even had to close the van roof as the wind was damaging the poptop and forcing rain inside.

    Very cold...temperature 6-14°

    December 23, 2017 in Australia

    Today most of us meet at Albany in our caravan park. Di, Smithy and Dallas drive down in one of Jac's cars. Mum and Dad come down in theirs. Jac, George, Zoe and Millie came in theirs.
    Not far from the beach, a big camp kitchen area we take over. We're all housed in 3 villas. A bit shabby but does the job. All us 7 Crawfords are in one bunk bed room. That could be a challenge. Mum and Dad are in our villa too with a room of their own.Read more

    Dive and tenpin bowling

    December 27, 2017 in Australia

    Today is an early start as Jimmy has booked a dive charter for he and Lauren and Steve and I. The dive team are a great bunch of blokes. We go out into the bay where there is HMAS Perth that was scuttled intentionally as a dive site after it was decommissioned. That was a very good dive. You could actually swim into the cabin and sit on the captain's chair. The second dive was around a bit of a reef. Lots of fishes and corals.
    After lunch the family plus Auntie Sue are booked into a game of Ten-Pin bowling. We all love this and Auntie Sue is a pro. She wins the inaugural trophy donated by the Smiths - a miniature colander.

    Anzac Hill and our turn to cook

    December 28, 2017 in Australia

    Today's tourist destination is Anzac Hill. The award winning National Anzac Centre is one of Australia’s most important cultural pilgrimages. Located within Albany’s heritage listed Princess Royal Fortress, the centre overlooks the actual harbour from which over 41,000 men and woman departed Australia for the Great War. Immerse yourself in the Anzac Legend and follow personal stories through state of the art technology, multimedia and historic artifacts.
    It really was very well done. You could spend all day there.
    After lunch Mick and Joe drive back to Denmark as Mick wants to catch up with a few mates for drinks and Joe is the Sober Bob driver.
    It is our turn to cook tonight so Jim and Lauren want to do their curry night menu. We go shopping in the arvo and get to cooking under Jim and Loz's direction. It was very nice tucker

    Family fun

    December 29, 2017 in Australia

    Our last day here today. We all decided it was a perfect place to stay. We all had a good time and enjoyed each other's company. Temperature was about 25 degrees so very comfortable for most of us. A little chilly for the Queenslanders?
    We would come back
