OUR BIG TRIP
DAY 133 Monday 19th August
Not many Kms to be covered today so it was around 10.00am before we left for our new destination of Geraldton. After failing to locate an entrance to the Pink Lake for a look, we had to be happy with a pile of rocks to get above the high grass level for some photos. Next stop was to the Lynton Convict Depot where convicts were housed while they were working on local properties. The building ruins and also restoring program of the area are amazing to see.
Continuing with our drive we arrived in Northampton in time for a town walk before lunch in the park at the rear of the Information Centre. It is a very neat and tidy town with lots of old buildings to investigate. Lunch over it was back to the wheel and on to the Belair Gardens Caravan Park at Geraldton. Vans booked in and sited and washing machines oscillating as we got settled. The Hales car has been booked in for a service tomorrow so Derek was giving the car a bit of a clean-up before it goes to the car doctor.
A sort of a happy hour was not held, as a very cold wind had blown up and we are not used to that word “cold”, so back to the vans for dinner preparation and bed.
