Had a lovely time house-sitting in Waroona and visiting with friends. Dinners out, cafe breakfast, happy hours etc. Worked at the Pinjarra Harness Club a few Mondays - signing in the Drivers and Trainers, and also worked at the Harvey CRC doing a bit of computer stuff then as an invigilator for people doing external exams. Good time to do lots of reading!
Then off to Wellington Dam (Potters Gorge) for 11 days. Had 2 lots of friends turn up and spend a few days with me also so that was fun. The park was partly closed as they have upgraded the whole thing with several new toilet, kitchens with gas BBQs, all bays graveled and with picnic tables and fire-pits. There is a dump point and rubbish skips as well and a new day visit area. Lots of trees so sun for people relying wholly on solar for their fridges may be a problem. TV pretty good, some phone and internet. Money collected most evenings. Mostly a peaceful National Park spot - until the young ones turn up for the weekend....... at least there are no motor boats or jet skis on the lake.
I went for a drive to Honeymoon Pool - no caravans allowed - a one way road. Pretty spot and lots=of tents there but the water will be very cold as it is a very shady area. Didn't realise I needed to go back a bit to get to Gnomesville, so crashed my way up this badly corrugated road and ended up back at Potters Gorge - gave up for the day!
We were visited by a Black-faced Wallaby one night. Very friendly as long as you didn't try to pat her head - she growls at you! Saw tiny blue wrens - but only when I didn't have the camera with me LOL!
Headed for the religious mile out of Busselton looking for a caravan park. Too hard - had to cross the road and they dont really look like places for caravans so carried on to Four Seasons instead.
