first of all a Merry Christmas to you and all fellow travellers and may we meet and catch up with many of you in the coming year.
Jo & I are in Jindabyne for Christmas / New Year, where we commenced our lap back in February.
I finished our last report heading for Eucla. The trip along the Eyre highway was a long day with the temperature reaching 49C as we got to Madura Pass!
I had to turn the aircon off when the motor started to overheat as we struck a bit of a headwind. We finally arrived at Eucla, where we explored the old telegraph station and jetty and I had a quick refreshing swim, (skinny dip!), before having another sing-along with Evan, Florence, Gail and John.
Next morning it was a final farewell to Evan & Florence and we hit the road for the final dash across the Nullarbor to Ceduna. The weather was a bit more "pleasant" only reaching around 38C and had cooled down by the time we reached Ceduna.
That night we joined John & Gail for a meal at the local then back to their bus for a cappuccino and a few laughs as we reflected on our travels.That night the westerly winds picked up a bit with gusts reaching 100kph, and I was glad I didn't have the awning out.
Streaky Bay was the next stop and we had a lovely spot right on the beach but John and Gail were shoved at the back of the park with no view and dust and noise from road works to spoil their stay.
