Alexander Bay

Heavy rain overnight and a cloudy start to the day put a damper on our plans. But we donned walking shoes and waterproof jackets and headed for Thistle Cove. The walking trails round here are excellent and are classed from easy to medium to hard, this one being medium. The drizzle soon passed and we had a good walk. We really need some excercise after all the sitting about lately whilst travelling.

A few days ago on a quiet beach near Esperance an elderly lady approached us thinking Alan was a lifeguard (lol). We had a chat to her and her husband and they told us they were staying in their small caravan at a place called Alexander Bay. It’s situated between Cape Le Grande and Cape Arid national parks. It has a small camping area with a bush toilet for 2 dollars a day that you put in an honesty box so we decided to head that way. The road was an unsealed one and the last few miles was a rough track. This is a very remote area and we were slightly apprehensive as to where we were going to end up. Eventually we reached the beach which was magnificent. The bay is several miles round with a backdrop of flowering bush scrub. We got ourselves set up and went for a walk round the bay and on the way back bumped into the only other people staying there – the elerly couple. We had a chat and they told us they’d borrowed the small caravan and come the last hundred miles or so cross country on rough tracks just stopping overnight at the side of the track when they were tired. By the time they got to Alexander Bay it was dark but they managed to sort themselves out. They absolutely loved it down there and had stayed for a week on their own. What a great inspiration and just goes to show age is not a barrier when travelling.

Next we will head north to Norseman to pick up the Eyre Highway and provision up ready for our journey across the Nullarbor. We will probably be without internet access again for a few days.
