We arrived in Esperance to smoke filled skies, a red sun and bush fires (lit by lightning storms) burning out of control in the area.
We left Port Lincoln Sunday morning and headed west, stopped at Venus Bay look out on our way through.
So here we are, on the road again. I have to keep pinching myself that it’s actually happening. For those of you new to our blog, it was 2013 when we decided to travel around Australia in a caravan.
Two years of preparation later (first had to buy a van having never owned one before) we headed up the east coast along the ‘great Aussie long paddock’ on Boxing Day 2015.
In Port Douglas, far North Queensland, my retina decided to detach itself for no good reason at all. Thus our trip was abandoned.
18 months and 6 lots of eye surgery later (I now have two extremely well attached retinas) and we were ready to complete the circumnavigation after Christmas 2016. This time toward the west coast. We bought a new car, a Ranger, for better towing, and were ready to head off after Christmas 2016. Christmas Eve our house burnt down.
Two years and a lot of stress and heart ache later our house is complete and we are on the road again.
We could not have got here with out our amazing support team (family, friends and the best neighbours in the world ). Thank you all for helping us get back on our feet and back on the road, we are so lucky to have you in our lives.
