Hot Days; Cold Nights

At the start of the week we found ourselves just north of Geraldton at a stunning little campsite, Coronation Beach,  where K and I went for a sunset swim (see above left).

As soon as the sun plops down into that vast Indian Ocean, however, the temperatures drop and it gets down to 8 or 9 degrees at night.  Burrrr (see R, above right).

After two nights near Gero, where we got to see remnants of the infamous Batavia shipwreck, we drove to Kalbarri.  Here we’re staying three nights at Murchison House Station, right on the river.  Lee was lucky enough to pick up some work.  The girls and I have been checking out the gorges at the local National Park (HOT) and snorkelling at Blue Holes (refreshing).

Tomorrow we head north again, not sure where . . .

I'm a Brisbane-based writer and mother of two children--one deaf and one hearing. I'm also a sessional academic at the University of Queensland, where I teach literature and creative writing. In 2016, my husband and I took the kids out of school and travelled around Australia with a camper trailer, visiting deaf schools along the way. When we found Toowong State School, it was so good, we decided to move to Queensland! We still have the trailer and take off for the bush whenever we can.
