The cloud cover made it a nice cool ride. Leaving Katanning with a coffee at the Dome; situated on the street level of the Premier Mill Hotel which is a beautifully restored, iconic former flour mill.
We pass the sheep saleyards and heading out of town paddocks with sheep … I wonder if they were the cheap $90 sheep at the sales yesterday fattening up to gain a good price in six weeks.
It’s still very dry with patches of green in paddocks, it looks like some farmers have sown their crops. Areas of sandy soil with salt bushes and dead trees. We pass many dried salt lakes and stop at Ewlyamartup Lake, a large salt lake 17km from Katanning; its set up with information plaques and picnic areas.
Nyabing is very small with a small store and Community Hub … quite a story is associated with how the Hub was established. We are camped at the Rec Centre … lovely grassed oval and just a short walk to the Hub where most of us are eating … a great night out.
