We then went up another track to Mushroom Rock which Rodney had heard was magnificent but when we got to see it, it didn't meet our expectations.

We drove back to Northhampton and had lunch in the picnic area behind the Info Centre. It's Sunday and everything is closed so we continued on into Geraldton and found a supermarket open where we bought provisions for tonight. We then drove on to Dongara and took advantage of the towns free campsite near the showground.

Mon Aug 17 Day 71
After leaving Dongara we drove south to Leeman where we had morning tea. There was a small island called Shag Island just off the coast and it was covered in birds.

We continued on to Cervantes where we had lunch then drove out the The Pinnacles in Nambung National Park. It is simply amazing the number and shape of hundreds of limestone pillars in the shifting sand.

It was raining and the forecast indicated that it would continue so Rodney couldn't do and star shots tonight or any time soon so we decided to head inland slowly towards Bobs brother Richards at Koorda. We stopped overnight in Drummond Reserve near Moora.

Tues Aug 18 Day 72
In the morning we drove into town and took a photo of the hotel which has unusual (and dangerous looking), attachment near the roof line. also took a phot of Hiroe near a draft horse statue and mural.

I have been following your journey with interest over the past weeks. What fantastic places you have visited and what amazing sights you have seen! How lovely to see that you have taken Rodney and Lizzie along with you.

I apologise for only sending one comment during the course of your journey, but although I became a member of Travellerspoint, and logged in, the comment box doesn't always open up.

Anyway, best of luck with the rest of your journey.

Love to you all.
