Sat 15 Apr … Penong to Norseman

Chasing rainbows …

No tent to pack up makes an early start. We have the sun behind us at 7am as we head off. A couple of small scattered showers around as we watch rainbows coming in and out of formation.

‘There’s always something to do’, I say as I’m vying for the best pic of a rainbow, ‘Yes, when I’m driving!’, says John.

Although there is no internet connection, I have off-line Wikicamps and always on the lookout for points of interest; the sock tree, the teddy bear tree … great for kids (and adults)

No stopping at coastal lookouts today … we have a 40km headwind. A road cyclist heading east … no panniers? Maybe he has a car companion? He has an amazing tail wind but not escaped by the intermittent showers.

We skirted in and out of showers all day lovely views of the coast and the looong straight road of the Nullarbor.

No pics or commentary as I was the pilot for a 5hr stint … I love driving but can’t relay on my co-pilot for the admin duties.

After 1127km, an overnight stop at a very old hotel in Norseman … ummm … most times, I prefer my tent. This was no exemption … however, the room was clean and shower hot.
