Sun 16 Apr … Norseman to home

We are getting earlier as we near home.  6.15am today.

That was some old hotel … a rabbit warren to say the least.  Many a story it could tell I’m sure in it’s heyday.  Although through the years it has served many a gold miner as there has been gold mined in the area since gold was first discovered in 1892 and still today there are active mines.

Great time in the morning to catch the sun rising over the dry lakes around Norseman.  My mind goes back to the lovely sunrises on the South Australian penninsulas over the last 6 weeks.

We have been lucky with the weather … shorts and tees for the whole trip.  Only one wet pack up … 3 nights of accommodation all the rest in our tents. We have driven approximately 7900 kilometres.

We left the tent poles in Moonta on our wet pack up which was a blessing as the new telescopic ones are much better positioned for any rain runoff.

John left is electric toothbrush behind. We had 2 punctures in the car.

John still struggles with his glasses around his neck … he refuses to buy good quality glasses chains from specsavers … rubbish from ebay is cheaper … his complaints are only white noise to my ears.

I always maintain that March/April is the best time to travel in the southern parts of Australia.

So that is the end of this adventure … stay tuned … we’ll be setting off on our bikes from Venice to Athens on 23 July … it will probably be a new blog address … I’ll let you know.
