    sind wir gestern.
    500 km zurück von Esperance nach Albany. Durch das Nichts. Insgesamt sind wir fast 5.5 std gefahren. es war wie auf der Hinfahrt. Strauch Baum Strauch Baum.
    Es gibt ein paar Abzweige, z.b. zur Bremer Bay. ❤
    Leider ist der Abzweig mal eben 60 km eine Strecke. Daher kein Foto von uns in der Bremer Bay.
    Albany hat uns heute nochmal einen tollen Sonnentag am Goode Beach beschert. Der Abschied morgen wird uns schwer fallen.
    Das Wetter soll morgen in Regen umschlagen. Dazu gibt es hier auch ab mittags immer noch nen ganz guten Wind.
    Habt ein schönes Wochenende!

    Day 12 Albany

    April 25, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Today was ANZAC Day and it just happened to be that we are in Albany, the town where all the Australian and New Zealand troops left Australia for the Great War, (WW1), in 1914.
    There was a huge march in the morning. After the march there was a service that had fighter planes and a big band along with the wreath laying and guest speakers.
    After the service we drove down to the National ANZAC centre where we learnt about what it was like being a soldier in WW1. There was also a bunch of inoperative anti aircraft guns that you could use which was really cool. At 1:00pm they shot a real cannon which was very loud.
    Next we returned to our caravan park where we had lunch and went fishing. I caught a tiny little fish but we couldn't do anything with it because of its size. Then we went out looking for an old ship wreck, but we didn't manage to find it. Instead we drove to an old whaling station next to a mini zoo but apparently it's an all day thing so we decided to come back tomorrow to see both the zoo and whaling station.
