Farewell Bullara and Hello Carnarvon

p1100315After bidding our hosts farewell we left Bullara Station and headed for Carnarvon, on Tuesday 4 October, via Minilya where the wildflowers were quite spectacular.

Our first job was to wash the red dust from The Burrow and The Chariot.

After collecting our mail we had a look around the town and foreshore with a walk along the Fascine.

The Gascoyne River is an upside down river.

Our few days here included a visit to the Overseas Telecommunications Centre and Apollo Tracking Station plus a trip out to the Quobba blowholes and HMAS Sydney 11 Memorial where we spotted several whales ofshore.

The local growers markets and a couple of farm gate stops produced some fresh fruit and veges at very good prices.

A fishing trip to Pelican Point landed a queenfish which was very tasty.

We have now been on the road for 12 months and celebrated with a fresh batch of scones a la Weber.

We are both looking forward to our next stop at Wooramel Station which is 120km south of Carnarvon.
