I have to say this typing this is starting to sound a little repetitive, but Friday was upon us and once again we were to be heading out of town for a weekend with our friends, a long weekend in Western Australia and as always we like to take advantage and make the most of them.When we were returning from our Christmas break at Esperance we stopped for a night at a great free camp spot called Pumphries Bridge, it is about 25 Kilometres from the nearest town of Pingelly, (pronounced Pin-Jelly) and we had promised ourselves that we would return as it’s only a couples of hours from Perth.
