Today we picked up Bob then went South, about an hour and a half South in fact. It was still hot down there but maybe a little cooler than Perth itself.
I spent some of the time looking out the window to spot wildlife… Yes I’m turning into ToF, but that’s not all bad! In order of sighting I saw:
(Possibly) Twenty-Eight Parrots (not a number, a common name)
(Possibly) Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo
A Dead Kangaroo
Pink And Grey Galahs
2 Camels (captive)
We also saw a sign on a barn stating “trespassers will be prosecuted”, which Joshua thought was good, what with having been reading Pooh Bear for about six weeks solid now!
We stopped at Stirling Dam and had a walk across the top, which is where the attached picture is from.
For lunch we stopped in a small town at a small café and had variations on a cheese sandwich, although Bob’s was more of a chicken wrap! After lunch we walked through the town and popped into a bakery, where we bought a small stick of bread to go with our risotto for tea and also the largest chocolate eclair I’ve ever seen. Which I rather enjoyed.
Then, on the drive back we also stopped at a cheese shop, which also sold ice cream. Which was also nice (honeycomb, yum).
On the way home Bob sat in the back with Joshy and tickled him. Joshua was laughing so hard we were a bit worried he was going to bring up the ice cream, thankfully we got back to Bob’s before that happened.
Tomorrow is a rest day!
