Day 10 Home again

Yesterday on our shopping trip into Pinjarra Ray wanted to come back to the overnight rest area and decided by hook or by crook he was driving his buggy with a carton of TEDs across the swing bridge. received_1..95573446072.jpeg
The Holiday Park is quite animal friendly, with 4 kilometres of river bank and 100 acres you can let your dog loose in. Plus the odd one or two horses riding through.

A quiet leisurely pack up from Pinjarra Holiday Park. Annette & Ray have had their second successful night in their new van and arrived home safely.

Ian got to play with his latest purchase which is a shade sail awning for the fridge, so he is happy.

The holiday park old home, not sure if they are going to renovate it, but doesn't it look great.

We headed home via Waroona and had a quiet coffee stop.

Day 9 It's Hot - Let's Move

After a great night camped next to the trains, and after a $10 pizza at the Pinjarra Premier Hotel, it started to become Hot.
We headed into town for a quick shopping trip, and a muffin break, then packed up and headed off to the Pinjarra Holiday Park for a night. Nice spot.
Deborah found some of her Old Country Rose patterned china crockery at this little shop in Pinjarra.

We actually had to leave the Pinjarra rest area as the Ranger had clocked our vehicle number plate the night before, so our 24 hours was up.

Day 8 Moore River Au revoir

We headed off from our lovely Moore River site. Ian took me to the rest area just north of Two Rocks for our morning cuppa.

We travelled along the Mitchell Freeway until we noticed a sign saying incident ahead @Ocean Reef Road.

We diverted to Shenton Avenue and got off at Marmion Avenue, & entering the Mitchell at Whitfords Avenue. We arrived safely at our destination point which today was Pinjarra.

Of course the rest area is next to the train line so we do expect trains. This one has 60 carriages.

Our friends Annette & Ray arrived about 6pm. We had a late happy hour before heading to the pub for dinner.

Day 7 Visit to Gingin an RV friendly town

You can even see Mr. Ed at Moore River. Didn't seem to like the water and left without having a dip.

Today we took a little road trip out to visit Gingin.

Gingin most certainly announces itself as a RV Friendly town. The shop owners were all very friendly & welcoming.

Deborah found some naughty gnomes to bring home to add to her kitchen window collection.

Ian visited the local Library.
Yes I know he is on holidays. But it is an interest of his.

We found an outstanding little IGA express that had freshly made to order, sandwiches, rolls & burgers. So we decided to support the local community and stayed to enjoy a lovely freshly made lunch. The IGA also had a lovely alfresco area which was where we chose to eat our smoked salmon & salad rolls.

We met up by chance with some fellow RVers, who were from Wagga Wagga NSW and driving a New Age Oz Classic.

Yet another glorious sunset at Moore River.

Good night all!
We hope your Powerball dreams come true tonight.

Day 6 Moore River

Here is Ian relaxing wondering what he shouldn't do next.

Oh, he has made a decision not to be too busy. Coffee was the option with Christmas Cake of course.

We think we have time to have a swim with a noodle across to the sand bank & back. We saw a pod of 4 Pelicans on the sandbar.

And the sea is so close to breaking thru into the river.

A beautiful sunset at Moore River. Yes it is happy hour.
