We instantly liked Esperance. It’s bigger than we expected considering its location. We understand it’s recently been voted number 1 holiday town in Western Australia. There’s a nice seafront with a small town centre just behind it and another bigger industrial area on the outskirts. It also has a large port which handles mainly grain.

After shopping (we are still buying a few bits for Geoffrey the campervan) we took the 25 mile ‘scenic ocean drive’ which really was quite stunning. There are beautiful beaches and various observation points for taking photos and looking at the great views. We even came across an icecream van in one of the bays which is quite a rarity in these parts.

In the afternoon we stopped at one of the bays, took lunch on the beach and had our first swim. The weather’s been glorious since we got here and today the temperature was well in the 30’s – a bit too hot for our first days sunbathing.

Tomorrow we’re heading for our first outback experience of this trip. We’re going to the Cape le Grande National Park. We’ve found that in Australia everywhere seems to have the biggest or best in the world i.e. the longest beach in the world, the longest road in the world, the biggest trees in the world. Cape le Grande is reputed to have the best beaches in the world so we’re off down there for the weekend to see if it’s true.

We won’t have internet access now for a few days but we’ll catch up when we come back this way again.

Sorry for the lack of photos in this diary but we’ve had a bit of a technical hitch (Lynne’s fault!) but we hope to have it sorted soon.
