Wow what a couple of days we have had! We have been at Baird Bay and went swimming with sea lions and dolphins. Then out salmon fishing where we caught 8 whoppas in 30 minutes. We have some great video as I wore my gopro whilst snorkelling. Ooo and that was a high point too, I never thought I would handle snorkelling but I love it. 1st chance I am getting a set.
We have also met an old guy who got rather too friendly with our backsides. And a crazy lady who is into conspiracy theory and is a psychic, But also some great people including a couple of other female riders from SA.
Tonight we are at Ceduna preparing for our crossing. I kind of wish I could just get it over with lol but I am tired right now. I am dying for a beer! Going for a walk soon to get food and booze. I am slowly corrupting Sue.
I am looking forward to WA and what I may find there. I have no idea what I am doing there except that I would like to find a small coastal town with beaches like Baird Bay / Smoky Bay etc, get a job and a place to live for a few months. I realised yesterday whilst talking about this that I have never really lived on my own. It's always been husband / boyfriend or kids. I am excited!

You're finding your head space! . I knew you would. It just takes time to work through the grief.

Nundroo is a shit hole, shoulda stopped at Fowlers Bay for the night and had a play on Scott's beach the next morning.

p.s. did the old duck at the Nundroo road house hit on you two?
