Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Herron Point 1 – 3 January 2007

Happy New Year!!! What a night; we set off for the dance not expecting to be drawn down a time warp to 1955! The hall was quite crowded (about 150 people, young and old) and all doing the Canadian 3 step, which matched our 3 feet! However things only got worse as we encountered more dances that we had never heard of and could not dance! The foxtrot was interrupted by a Scottish reel display, though they had obviously not practised their dance routine and tripped over each other, which made a nice contrast with the professionalism of the other dancers! However the supper made up for it with tables groaning with home made goodies, which we took full advantage of. Really it was a lot of fun as we felt we had gone back to our childhood or beyond! The locals were very friendly and spontaneously poured out the local gossip!
We headed to the coast as our friends Robyn and John said they were staying at Heron Point, south of Perth. The road became quite windy and hilly and we were glad to stop at last, in a attractive little spot right next to a peaceful inlet. We also caught up with another lovely couple, Gary and Lyn, who we have bumped into a few times in our travels.
The big news event around here was the imminent storm that the Met Bureau was predicting to hit the general southern region, resulting from Cyclone Isabel converging with a deep cold front in the south. The first day and night were very threatening and rainy but the next day, when the storm congregated at Esperance, it was sunny and pleasant at Herron Point.
