Thursday, 22nd October, 2020.
Our first stop after leaving home on Thursday, 15th October was at Bakers Hill Pie Shop
A walk along the track behind the caravan park, and then into the town to sample the beer on tap at the Goomalling Tavern before returning to cook dinner, after which we happily settled in for a quiet night.
In the ensuing week we have visited Dowerin, calling in for coffee and cake,
Wyalkatchem, Trayning ,
and Mangowine Homestead (an overnight stop),
Elachbutting Rock (overnight),
Westonia (2 nights),
We've climbed rocks, visited mine sites, strolled through country towns, driven along a section of Kulin's Tin Horse Highway,
We've been pleasantly surprised by most of the towns we've visited, Westonia in particular impressed us with its gardens, recreation centre, caravan park, pub and friendly locals. Visiting the museum in Southern Cross, the lovely and very helpful volunteer ladies showed us a book about Koolyanobbing which we found very interesting as we lived there for four years in the early 1970s....the book was available for sale so we bought a copy.
In Narrogin we visited the Shire Office where another lovely and helpful lady was able to tell us exactly where my great grandfather is buried so we'll visit his grave before we leave the town.
The flies and the sometimes iffy weather, though annoying, have not stopped us from thoroughly enjoying ourselves with more to come.
