Are We There Yet?

Eight days today since we set off on our very exciting journey.  It's been...interesting.  Favourite place so far?  Fraser Range Station.  

Look at these two likely lads in the camp kitchen at Fraser Range!  This is the BEST camp kitchen with lounge chairs and a lovely slow combustion wood heater to warm the place up.  (Photo courtesy Lynne McPherson). Personally, I would have liked to stay for a week.  The theme, however, for this trip must be "Ever Onward" and so on we went across the Nullabor. 

At Ceduna we bought fresh oysters to have at wine o'clock.  That is really all I recall about Ceduna.

Ever Onward.

I managed to talk the crew into a lay over day at Burra in South Australia.  We got to see the sights and spent a morning not having to pack up and leave at sun up.  Read 9.30ish actually.  We can't hurry packing up and leaving. There's cappuccino to make for breakfast first.  Of course, the machine travels with us.  

The view behind our van this morning at the Burra Caravan Park.  Rather peaceful yes?  Yes.  

We've developed a small problem with the fridge in the caravan but no one is panicking - except ME!  
I'm not even going to mention the water leak in the en suite!  No one else seems at all concerned.  When you are on the road it's sometimes not possible to get a fix unless you actually break down and can go no further.  So we travel a little bit wounded but not stopped in our tracks.

Resting tonight at Renmark in the Big 4 Caravan Park - Lakeside.   You should see the loos here.  So posh - just like at the Crown Casino except colder.  It's an expensive park and I don't mind at all.

Tomorrow?  Ever Onward.  


  1. Burra looks so beautiful! You'll have to do another trip and retrace your steps, nice and slowly...

  2. Love the photo of the peaceful spot behind the caravan. Tell Lionel to slow down so that you don't have to pack up the caravan everyday. Jess and Shan still talk about the wonderful buffet meal they had at the roadhouse in Ceduna. It had been put on for a group and they let the two of them join in for a cheap fee! Looking forward to your next instalment.


Great to hear your comments. Love to stay in touch.
