Safari 2019 August 6th & 7th

Tuesday August 6th

We have now been away for three weeks..but where has the time gone. Our trail has taken us to a lot of interesting and very attractive places. To make it more enjoyable the weather has been much warmer that we would have been experiencing at Milawa.

From Drummond Point we travelled inland to Cummins. The countyside is very pretty at present with green crops and undulating hills. Eventually we have settled on the coast at Elliston this evening. It is a well cared for township with several marked walking tracks. We enjoyed walking 3kms, from Little Bay along the cliff tops, overlooking, the Indian ocean to a monument recognising the death of a number of aborigines in 1802..well over 200 years ago.

Wednesday August 7th ..   It is very wet today. We have caught a weather front coming directly across the Peninsula so we will stay here another night..what else! I am doing a load of washing & drying by machine.  
We had ideas of buying our lunch today....we went to the only Bakery, thinking we may have a foccacia..but no this Bakery does not have bread so no sandwiches only a pasty, meat pie or such. We walked out thinking that a 'cup of soup' in the van sounded much more interesting. 
Late in the day the rain cleared quite well so we went for a good walk in strong wind and weak sunlight. The fresh air did us both a lot of good after such heavy showers of rain which we are told delivered about  12/15 mils rain. The local grain farmers will appreciate it on their crops.
