So today we finished crossing the Nullabor-hooray!
We woke up at the motel and we were glad to have not camped as the wind had been gale force all night and we would almost certainly have been dealing with damaged and broken equipment.
So as we checked out there were some big rigs getting fuel, signs of things to come on the road with more crazy passing in the wind and rain.
We traveled the longest bit of straight road in Australia and I admit it did get boring. Since our taste in music has very limited overlap we have a few audiobooks to keep the peace.
We stopped for fuel at the Balladonia roadhouse which was the location of Skylab crashing to Earth in the 70s. There is a bit on the roof and some more bits inside.
From there it was a long but enjoyable drive in changing scenery with trees suddenly reappearing.
We are now in Esperance and will be here for a couple of days before moving on. Today is our wedding anniversary but no romantic dinner for two today- perhaps later.
In the meantime Go Murray!!!!
