Three days in Melbourne

21/09/18 Today we found our way to the Essendon D.F.O. and spent a few hours wandering around and shopping. One of the items on our list was a new TV as our old one at home had died the week we left. We found one that suited our needs and budget at The Good Guys. […]

Norseman to Ceduna (continued)

10/09/18 So finally up Eucla Pass and onwards, the road is long but without very many winding turns, the vegetation is mostly low shrubs, there are some bushes up to around three metres tall and although this is tall for a “Bush” I think due to their form they qualify as bushes rather than tree.
