This was one of the free overnight parks somewhere up along the north-west WA coast. I am a dreadful diary keeper and don't have the camps book with me in Melbourne to check it out, This was a beautiful, restful area. That's my protector, my bichon frise Georgie in the forground

This old dead tree and accrued plant flotsam is just crying out for some fabric and sewing machine to make it into a wall hanging.

The pelicans are discussing their days activities!

I thought I would back track a bit and show you some of the magnificent scenery I caught with my camera on my trip so far. Unfortunately when you are driving and come across something worth a photo there is no way you can stop and take it, but there were plenty of other opportunitiesd.

Still in Melbourne

It seems the Cave will not cost as much to fix as first thought. The bank balance will be very happy if that is the case.

One piece of advice for budding travellers. Do NOT buy a motor home off an ex truckie who assures you it is in tip top condition - unless you know them very well and know the background of the vehicle.

In the meantime I am catching up with friends, doing a bit of sewing and taking the chance to read some books. I love reading but don’t seem to get the chance to just sit and read very often.

MY house in WA has been on the market for a long time. I put it on just as the market crashed! When it does sell I am seriously thinking of buying a 4WD motor home as the current one does not like rough roads, even when they are sealed .

5th Sept 2010

My first blog entry.
Here I am in Melbourne. My motorhome had a big hissy fit and is in Brisbane waiting to get fixed so I flew to Melbourne to spend time with daughter Neroli (her textile art blog is here: )  and to visit a couple of rellies and friends.
At least I have got some sewing done. I have been doing a complicated bargello quilt and have printed off some photos of my recent travels to do small art quilts from.
