OUR BIG TRIP
DAY 115 Thursday 1st August
Early pack up this morning and had left the Broome SDAC Overflow camp by 9.15am and turned south toward Port Hedland with a stop for a cuppa at about 10.45 and another stop for lunch at 1.00pm, both in road side stops before turning into the Eighty Mile Beach Caravan Park, which is 10 Km off the Highway. It was a big day for us at around 350 Km.
Booked in for two nights without power and set up on the (almost) sea front sites. There are some dunes between sites and the ocean. We all went for a walk along that beautiful long, clean, sand with lots of shells, beach before returning for happy hour and tea. Bed followed.
Day 116 Friday 2nd August
Continued our relaxing lay day at the Eighty Mile Beach with a slow walk to the beach and a walk around the C/P to see what rigs were there. After lunch we did some eyelid checking for leaks before visiting the park shop and having a wonderful multi flavoured homemade ice cream. YUM. A little more sitting down as happy hour was upon us before tea and … guess?
DAY 117 Saturday 3rd August
A very early departure from Eighty Mile Beach C/P at about 8.30am and a stop for cuppa at Pardoo Roadhouse, and a top up with fuel, before continuing to South Hedland and the Blackrock Tourist Park in time to set up and have lunch before doing a sightseeing drive into Port Hedland. Finding the Info Centre closed we did a town walk and a look around the piers, also drove to Cooke Point before heading back to the shopping centre at South Hedland. Just caught Coles open and returned to camp for happy hour and tea. Then my favourite… BED.
