It is our third day in Exmouth and I’m sitting under a shelter, in a park in town, publishing this, and the previous two blogs, with an inverter coming from the car. Russ has been shopping and is walking around to find a place for lunch.

We are on the edge of Cape Range National Park, and were looking forward to getting a site there, but after going for a drive through it yesterday, we don’t like any of the sites as they are right on the beach and are extremely exposed. It is very hot here and I think, unless you are a mad keen angler, there’s not a lot of other things to do. We drove to Yardie Creek, at the end of the park and that was great, but you can’t book a site there – you have to queue at the entrance at 8am, and take what you’re offered.

The flowers in the park were fantastic though.

From here, we are heading south to the Coral Coast, after staying at a station for a couple of days. I’m not sure whether we’ll have reception there or not.

The country to Exmouth was through red sand dunes – covered in wildflowers, small shrubs and spinifex – stunning!

Thanks for your comments.

    Hi guys. The photos are great. Perhaps you can collect some seeds. The guys at Kurunga would propagate them for you. Remember the trip out to Old Andado station on the edge of the Simpson You repaired your tire that time. You must be getting ‘old’ Speaking of senior moments I had lost the e mail you sent re the ‘blog’ but guess what? I googled you!

    Enjoy!
