    Herron Point - day 1

    April 14, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 20 °C

    We left Gracetown, under very gray skies. It had rained quite a bit overnight, but the day dawned with most of the rain gone.
    Travelled through to Busselton to find a public dump point, where we offloaded what we needed to.
    Then on the road through to Herron Point, which is on the south eastern edge of the Peel Inlet. It is a free camp (no power or water, but toilets available). A bit rough around the edges but quiet and quite pleasant, and about 20 metres from the edge of the inlet.
    It costs us the grand sum of $5.50 pp per night.
    We setup camp and then had lunch and relaxed. The weather is very iffy, with a bit of rain, on and off.
    Went for a walk along the inlet and took some photos.
    And then had a quiet night, and testing the battery on the van again. So far, so good.
    We intend staying here for 2 nights, so it will be another test of the battery tomorrow, particularly since the forecast is for cloudy and rain conditions, so the solar panel will not get much sunshine on it. We will see how it goes.

    Herron Point - day 2

    April 15, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Our second day at Herron Point, and for once, not much to report.
    Spent the morning in camp. Weather overnight brought quite a bit of rain, and this day was very overcast, windy and cool. Did some client work.
    In the pm, we went into Mandurah to the shops, for lunch and to charge up our phones. Both ventures were successful - thank you Mandurah Forum.
    Later in the pm we went and visited Eddie and Gene at Timber's Edge, and spent a few hours catching up with them. Had a yummy Indian dinner, and then drove back to camp via the road that skirts the inlet to the south - Preston Beach road. Since it was dark, we were able to properly test out the LED bar lights on the vehicle, and they worked well.
    A quite night and end to the day.
    No pics for this day )-:😒
