Free camp site, Lake Nallan, Golden Outback of Australia, Western Australia
Camp spot 16 k m N of Cue or 96 km SW of Meekatharra. Turn E 1 km S of Parking Bay onto a gravel road, follow the track around the lake to various camp sites. Allow time to walk, collect firewood and enjoy viewing the wildflowers. Arise early in the morning to view abundant kangaroos and unfortunately rabbits in near plague proportions once more: maybe that was why the wild flowers though still prolific, were not as dense as I recall they were, here, last year.
There is supposed to be mobile phone contact here, it is weak, an aerial would be needed for most cell phones to work. I am online on the internet from Lake Nallan, using an antenna mounted on the caravan roof, picking up a very weak internet signal, enough to share tonight’s lovely camp site with our friends.
I bought a kilo of frozen chicken pieces at Meekatharra, on our way to Lake Nallan, and cooked chicken rice and vegetable stew which we ate around the campfire and had multigrain toast cooked over the coals.
Six shooting stars in the sky tonight while we relaxed after dinner by the last glow of the campfire, another beautiful night and fingers crossed, I think I am recovering from the flu.
We only travelled 116 km today, not far enough. Bella and Edward are just beginning to open up to each other in the unabridged audio recording of the best seller, novel, Twilight, that Reg and I are listening to, and it has been hard not to want to put it into the CD in the caravan. I think I’m enjoying this story and have to remind myself, it was supposed to be used, only as a treat, to make long driving days more pleasurable. I did resist. Bella and Edward can get back to secretly dating, on tomorrows journey towards Wubin Rocks or Jibbering Rocks, our tomorrow night’s planned free camp site. I will be able to ‘Twilight speak’, with my granddaughter, on my return home and not be quite so out of touch with the current generation's taste in books.
