Carnarvon, take 2...

Two new tyres, a little lighter in the pocket…another farmers market, another deluge (they still say that it doesn’t rain in Carnarvon) and restock in food for at least two weeks (we are getting better at it all the time.

Matt’s 40th birthday was spent pretty much under the cover of the camp kitchen as the rain was so heavy and continuous that there was nothing else to do and nowhere else to go. We were thankful that we were at least here and not stuck somewhere where we could only retreat to the innards of our tent. Our tent leaked for the first time and we slept huddled in the middle…

A nice bloke Mike helped Matt do his first oil change with Frank helping as we hit 10,000 km since leaving Melbourne.

We were at a caravan park (as before) called Wintersun, which had filled in the last 2 weeks with the older folk who move up north for 3 months here. It even has a bowling green and they have “sundowners”. Our children were a little too noisy this time round…Grin and bear it…Love the outdoors, caravan parks, well…prepare ourselves and car for the next part of the journey up to the Ningaloo Reef.

(sorry, I didn't take any pic's it was too wet, and I forgot)
