Woke at 7am, a quick few photos then back on the road, only 20 mins to the border point but we had to stop at a view point on the way!
Road train at the last Roadhouse in S.A
About to enter the border checkpoint, time to eat all the leftover fruit which we don't have much of after learning our lesson at the S.A border!
The Border for Wester Australia
Eucla Motel, an oasis in the desert :)
When we stopped for coffee & brekkie the lady from the cafe told us there was an abandoned telegraph station 4km down a gravel track behind the motel
And a 1km walk behind the telegraph station, over the dunes, we found this...
An impromptu swim was called for (not skinny dipping as there was one other couple on the whole beach!)
Back on the road and heading for the heat!
40c across the Nullarbor Plain today!
Madura Lookout point
Australia's longest straight road!
It's been an amazing road trip through the Nullarbor but now all we want is a cool shower!
We've made it to Balladonia and our camp for tonight &http://www.balladoniahotelmotel.com.au/ it's raining, and do you know what, I may just run naked in it!!
A piece of Skylab fell near here sometime in the 70s (I think)
We got a certificate :)
All clean, off on walkabout around the back of the Balladonia with Lee & the camera.
No Roos but what a killer of a sunset, every angle of the sky gave an incredible image. (these are straight off the iPhone, no editing)
Time for dinner at the Balladonia bar/restaurant, we both had the fish & chips & it was lovely (cooked by Terry) We spent quite a long time chatting to Holly from Workington in The Lakes who also works here & has spent the last couple of years travelling the world. (She is also finding the reality of it being Christmas in a few days difficult!)
Very tired after a very long day due to our clocks going back 2 or 3 hours when we got to W.A so nite x
