      Day 2

      April 7 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 32 °C

      2nd Day
      We left Kulin at 7.15am and 13° temp!! Stopped at Hyden for diesel and noticed lots of water alongside the road. It was lovely and green from here. Stopped for coffee, then on to "Breakways" Very impressive as you'll see from photos. You can stay o/n as toilets here. Fuelled up and had lunch at Norseman.
      Then all we saw were trucks heading West, carry food for all those starving Sandgropers!!
      Stopped o/n at Harms Lake. Nice and quiet, a few other vans, but no toilets.
      545kms today.

      Day 3 Monday 08/04

      April 8 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

      Woke 5am after early night, and it was quite foggy. We left Harms Lake at 5.45am and drove to Balladonia to fuel & a coffee fix!
      Trucks galore (estimate average every km. )
      Fog cleared to light rain by the time we got to our breakfast stop "Baxter" rest area at 7.30am. It continued raining most of the day. There was a cairn there, where I left a rock, which I wrote on ( Pam & John 8/4/2024 Perth - Adelaide. (That's for Sue & Ron and Jo & Rod, Pam & Pete)
      We drove in light rain to Cocklebiddy, for coffee & beautiful fruit cake ( thank you Joy). The Eyre Hwy was so green, and we both are enjoying the driving. Madurah fuel stop ( Madura Pass is very spectacular) then more driving to Mundrabilla for top up fuel. We've been playing all our old cd's, which has been so much fun.
      Crossed the border & reset our watches 1 1/ 2 hours forward. Finally arrived at our o/n stop at the 164 peg rest area. A great spot 20 kms from Nullabor Roadhouse. We'll check out the view over the Bight tomorrow, and then it's on to Steaky Bay. We've crossed the Nullabor many times, so we're not smelling too many roses. ... 712 kms today & another early night now. 🌙

      Day 4 Tuesday 9/4/24

      April 9 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      Left 164 Peg campsite at 7.15 am after a lovely quiet night. Drove 20kms to Nullabor Roadhouse for a bit of fuel, $2.944 litre. (dearest so far). Roadhouse was good, though. The next stop was "The Head Of The Bight." You must have your seniors card with you to get a discount. ($ 7 each) It's very impressive here as photos will show, but unfortunately, cold & windy. It doesn't open until 8.30 am & closes at 4.00 pm. The gate was locked when we arrived, but we had breakfast and drove on further to the coast once the gate opened. There were about 6 caravans here that had stayed the night.
      We later passed the spot where the two trucks collided & and sadly, 3 people were killed. You can see the evidence on the road where the trucks had both caught fire. It was a terrible accident for those involved but also for those first on the scene who could do nothing to save those people. Just before arriving in Ceduna, we saw 4 mounted police on horses walking slowly along each side of the highway!! I'm not sure what that was about. Obviously, searching for something!
      Arrived in Ceduna about 2 pm and had to get a gas bottle refilled, then we drove on to Smokey Bay and booked here for one night as we couldn't get a sites in Steaky Bay ( March/ April ) very busy. Have a site booked for Thursday and may try the RV park in Streaky Bay tomorrow.
      Weather much cooler here and will be 19° tomorrow.
