my exmouth

Dear readers, Hello again and today you will be reading about my adventures in Exmouth. The first two days we were in RAC camp ground and we didn’t do much except study – yes, dad and I have to do some actual schoolwork – and go to the markets. While we were there we heard…

yardie creek.

we still remember yardie creek from our first visit here (in late 2005). it’s one of those ‘could have been worse’ things: worse, as in ‘the car could have been swept out to sea’ which i don’t think would have qualified as covered under the ‘normal use’ insurance policy. we got stuck trying to drive…

cape range.

we have stayed in and around exmouth for a while now and there is a good reason for this. of all the amazing places in australia this part has always been one of my absolute favourites. exmouth is located near the tip of a peninsula, with the exmouth gulf on one side and ningaloo on…

update day.

finally the exams are out fo the way and i can focus on a little bit of tinkering instead. this is an accumulator tank. it’s small but it has a secret hidden inside: a bladder filled with air. the tank fills until the pressure is equalized. conversely when a tap is opened the bladder empties…

packing up.

more fun with technology. this time i used the phone to take a time lapse series of us packing up the caravan. i don’t think i got the settings quite right, it’s a bit too fast. anyway, this is what it takes to pack everything up and fold down the van. about 30 minutes, comfortably.…

sunrise over ningaloo.

we’ve been a little preoccupied lately and have not been able to enjoy ningaloo as much as we would have wanted to. the weather has not been perfect either. it stopped raining quickly after the post last time, it really was only wet for one night. but we had some strong winds which churned up…

my station stay

Unfortunately I don’t think I will talk, or better yet: write, too much in this post because I don’t have much to say. First things first: I’m only writing about two things and you will soon find out what they are (I hope the tension is growing). But let’s just get on with it before…

station stays.

so far on our travels we have found a few different types of accomodations. there are the good (sometimes not so good) old caravan parks. depending on the age the amenities may be a bit tired but in most places we have been they have been clean. most at least try to grow some kind…

my karijini

Before Karijini there were still a few days in Coral Bay left and those were rainy ones. On my way back from my friends’ caravan I heard some noises in a tree and when I looked up I saw an adorable little owl called a Boobook. I named (him or her) Bookie. The day I…
