The final word – Part 1

Well, we are due to arrive home any day and it would appear neither Tom nor I are good at keeping a blog up to date. It would appear that we are still in the far north of WA rather than back in our home state enjoying the heat. For those of you who are interested I thought I would share some of the highlights of the last few months by sharing a few of our photos – of which we have millions!!

We really have had an amazing time and we are all sad that it is coming to an end (well maybe not the kids!!). I can’t quite believe it, I really could keep going and going. We have met some amazing people and made new friends all across this amazing landscape. We have overcome obstacles and Tom has re-enacted many a Macgyver episode – although he hasn’t had to blow anything up. We are so blessed to live in this diverse and spectacular country.

Point Samson, Karratha and surrounds!

For those who don’t know, I spent four years of my early childhood in Karratha so it was exciting to be able to return as an adult. I even remembered a few things about the place, although it is much more of a thriving metropolis than when I was there in the ’80’s. We would visit Point Samson and Cossack on day trips.

Our old streets – didn’t recognise any houses though!

Millstream Chichester National Park

Millstream Chichester National Park – the one and only time we ever went camping as kids was in this very park.

Cossack: An old pearling town that is now a ghost town – a very interesting history.

Point Samson

How to create an instant birthday party – stay in a caravan park full of children.
Down at the beach
Look at me!!


We absolutely loved Cleaverville. A free camp right on the beach. Stunning!! Except everyone was eaten alive by midgies!! Tom and Matisse were the worse!! Seriously painful!!
