Wednesday, September 2nd, Jurien Bay


Our plans to see wildflowers here got off to a huge success today.  Mt. Lesueur National Park was spectacular.  Pat says she's never had an floral experience equal to this one.  I've uploaded my photos, but we have 150 more from Pat's camera we have to sort through and upload.

That will take reaching a more powerful wifi than is at the pub we're have beers in tonight.  Because the availability gets slimmer further north, it may have to wait until we get back to Perth in a little over a week.

We are having so much fun with the RV.  Setting up the bed each night is a bit tiresome, and the width of the middle of it (where the fridge and stove meet the toilet) is a bit narrow.  Passing each other is real cozy, however, so it's not all bad.

Fruit and vegetables are expensive here, but everyone's very friendly.  To my friend Chris, I have to say I've heard three guys say "Good-day, Mate" in four days.  My only disappointment is that the water's cold here on the west coast, and the waves are blocked by reefs and rocks at every bay so far.

We're headed north tomorrow after two nights here.  We recommend Jurien Bay Visitor Park as a base of operations for anyone wanting to see all of the area's natural environment.  While I've yet to see a platypus or a gecko, there are plenty of other great flora and fauna we have seen.

Here's a link to the photos I took today.  Pat is keeping track of which wildflowers we've scored, and we'll be constructing a full album when we get back.

Hey you two! What diverse plants! Is this what they mean when they say "in the bush"? Love the Koloa's. I think one of my favorite is the pinnacles, very amazing, how were they formed? Nice to see Pat enjoying herself with all the flowers, glad she is getting a dream fulfilled. Drive safe my dear friends. n
