We left Albany to grey skies and heavy drizzle. I have finally mastered getting out of the car without plastering myself in the mud all up the sides so Brian decided the fun was over and it was time to clean the worst off. For reasons that I will never understand he decided to wash the car at the side of the road using a brush, puddle water and a Celebrations box. I refused to join in and was glad that no one drove by to watch the nutter! I had chosen a route with some rather egotistical points of interest, namely the Muir highway, Lake Muir National Park and of course Lake Muir. It is worth pointing out to those who do not know my maiden name was Muir. Apparently there is even a Muir ... read more

Aussie Import 25 & 26thJanuary 2015 Sunday morning arrived and the day of our Australia day celebrations, we had set a breakfast date with everyone for 7.30 with the same guests we had for dinner last night Everybody dutifully arrived, (except for Brian and Nesta, who’s excuse was they cannot remember me advising them we would do breakfast) and we cooked for another 12 hungry campers, eggs bacon, sausage, grilled tomatoes and toast. We all then regrouped over to the TLCC membership area as the Cricket matches had started at 8.00am. Now Australia day is a big day, it’s all about celebrating Australia’s identity, meats pies, lamingtons, cricket and generally having fun, historically it’s when the first fleet of British ships landed in 1788 at Port Jackson. It is celebrated on 26thJanuary but as most of ... read more

Come Surf in my Turf 24-25 January 2015 Fonty's Pool Manjimup Saturday morning was quite chilly, the night had been really cool about 12 degrees, a big difference from the heat we experience overnight in Perth, we only slept under a very light doona, but the day soon warms up. Today, we were doing something a bit different, we were booked on a boat trip on the Donnelly River. We needed to be at reception at 8am promptly to catch our coach, most people were already on the coach, we headed to some vacant seats near the back and very soon the full to brimming coach was on its way. The coach took about 45 minutes to get to the jetty on the Donnelly River the driver of the coach was also the Captain of the ... read more

The Great Escape 22-23rd January 2015 The Australia day weekend was nearly upon us and as usual we were preparing to go away, with the good times that we had had down in Myalup on Andy (B’s) birthday weekend still ringing in our ears, we were looking forward to another big weekend down in Manjimup with the Toyota Landcruiser Club for Australia Day where 100 of us were gathering at Fonty’s Pool for some fun. Roobie was packed and ready to go, we only got her back on Tuesday after having a word in Kimberley Kampers ear about the quality of her gas bayonette they installed and after having to do some research and a drawing or two we finally got what we wanted, so she was collected on Tuesday night then it was straight over ... read more
