It rained during the night and stopped by morning. I was dry inside the shelter. I enjoyed a hot chocolate with my porridge in the morning.

I spilt some dry porridge on the table and when I walked away, this pied currawong ate up the spillage.

The foliage was saturated so I had to wear my rain jacket.

Kathleen ClassenBoyanup! Our daughter in law’s mother lives here! First place we stopped after Perth on our first visit to Australia. Such a happy memory. We were in a car, of course, and still adjusting to driving on the other side of the road.

I made camp at the Transit Park. There are about 20 sites next to an oval. There is no caretaker here. A sign at the front says to book online. I tried that and found the website broken.

The amenities block requires the use of a code (later I found out it was 0024tick). Luckily other campers had left it unlocked so I could use it.

I'll have a rest day tomorrow and will visit the shire to pay on Monday.

Unknown cost?
