I enjoy the bus rides.
I arrived to Western Australia and then went swimming in one of the most amazing beaches I have ever been to. The sun was setting and when we walked down Sahyma gave me a handful of mint from a tree. We crushed it and it immediately had the best aroma (which smelled nothing like the mint I was expecting).
I live in a camper. The camper is on a hill. I don’t have tv, a shower, microwave, or bathroom. I like it, a lot. I finished reading Crime and Punishment. It is a fantastic book and in the top 5 books I have ever read. From the front of my caravan is a hill. I’m at the top of it. At the bottom of the hill is a kiwi tree. To the right of the caravan is a bathroom like you might find at a national park. The adjusting from one place to another has been interesting to me. I am glad that I have had the opportunity to experience so many different settings regarding living quarters. So ya, the caravan is great. I don’t have internet either, as you might have guessed. I take the ute into town and use the internet at a News stand.
Driving the ute to the Southern Ocean
The biggest spider I have seen since I arrived to Australia was in my camper the other night. It was as big as my fist. No snakes yet. I’m ok with that. There is a bakery that won the competition for best meat pie in Australia last year here. I thought that peculiar since I have been raving about meat pies. It was good, but it didn’t blow my mind. The crust was fantastic though. I will try some more from there before scoffing at their ‘best of’ designation.
I’m doing a fair amount of work. I finished brush cutting down the side of Mt. Shadford today. I also just finished picking apples for the market tomorrow and macademia nuts from the ground. Earlier I cleaned up a path here that reminds me of Walt Disney World. The path is perfect. It even has a bench in the middle of tulips. I cleaned up the pond yesterday.
Things are pretty simple right now. Western Australia is much slower than the east coast. It has been a nice experience. There are only 5k people in the town that is 15/km away. On the weekends I get to drive the ute to the beaches. If I weren’t getting in the ute to go to town to get on a computer and then post this than I would go into great detail of them, but I do and I also have to come back and pick some squash for the market tomorrow.
