After leaving our little sandy campsite yesterday we headed further north, planning on visiting the Pinnacles in the Nambung Nationl Park, near Cevanties, and then hopefully a campsite on the beach. It was a very cloudy day, not much good for photographs but fingers crossed we will find something. Before heading off we took some photos of the flowers around our campsite, most are very tiny but I did find this beauty.
All packed up now and ready for the off. I wish the UK would learn how to plan and carry out roadworks, the Aussies seem to have it right, no 3km stretches of cones with nobody working, instead only the area being worked on is coned off and humans at either end controlling the traffic flow, so much more sensible!!!!
And onward we traveled, watching the gray cloud overhead and wondering if the wind was strong enough to push it out to sea before it dropped it's load on us. What do you think, were we lucky or not???
We turned off to go to the Nambung National Park, home of the Pinnicles but stopped at Cervanties to replenish our supplies. We needed a new Butt Bucket as Alan stood on ours yesterday and smashed it to smithereens, some pineapple juice for Singapore Slings, more fly spray and a wind breaker in readiness for our night on the beach. Cevanties reminded me of Seahouse for those who know Seahouses, with one big difference - no amusement arcades, no bingo halls, no parking problems, no tat!!! It did have a shop just like Makays selling all sorts of touristy and beachy things (OK, that is tat), a Liquor Land, a caravan park and a fish and chip shop etc. We got everything we needed with the exception of the wind breaker, I am not sure if they are called something different here or they just don't exist. When we explained what we were looking for - a long piece of canvas with stakes at intermittent distances in it; they knew what we were talking about but were unable to come up with the name of what it was called. We did find a jar of Marmite though. Now I have a problem, this is FAKE Marmite, our Marmite, as in the real Marmite comes in a jar with a yellow lid and has it's own website www.marmite.com and just beside the FAKE Marmite were packets of Tim Tams, we had to have them too <g> Tim Tams for those who are unaware of what they are, are chocolate covered chocolate biscuits, we had our first taste of them in Saudi when Mich brought some back for us.

No sunsets tonight, sorry but we do have a movie to watch <g> Alan brought along a bunch of movies on his laptop for nights like these. Hope it is something good and not horror!!!
