What a lovely sunny morning! After a leisurely start, we climbed the Nut. It is a 152m high volcanic table-top formation that is about 13 million years old. It was a very steep, but only 15 minute, climb to the top. We walked the 2km circuit which boasts impressive views of the coast, village and surrounding countryside. We took the chairlift back down before heading down to Stanley Wharf where Dean did a bit of fishing.Alas, no bites today…

We drove a substantial distance in the afternoon, all the way to Rosebery where we intended to stay the night. This mining village didn’t feel particularly safe, with everyone driving by in utes staring at the strangers, so we found a small rest area outside the village to park our van. Out came the sandalwood sticks as mozzies were aplenty!

To my dismay, I remembered today that driving any longer than half an hour at a time makes me go to sleep! So Dean reckons I won’t be seeing much of Australia, haha! Having said that, I’m still catching up on sleep, so hopefully I’ll be back no normal in a few days.
