The next day we checked out and then went to see Kata Tjuta (Aboriginal name) or The Olgaâ€™s. The first viewing area was about 10kâ€™s away from them, but this was still too close to get the whole thing in one picture. We went right up to them and this time Reagan actually got out of the car! Afterwards we went back to the resort to return the key, which we had forgotten beforeâ€¦. We left around lunchtime as the trip that day was only going to be a â€śshortâ€ť one: 321kâ€™s.As we were backtracking the first part of the trip it was a bit boring. Most of the trip was the same as the day before, just seen from a different angle. When we got back to Erldunda where we had left Jason the previous day, we had most of our trip done. Only another 80 kilometres to Kulgera where we were stopping for the night.
When we got to Kulgera we saw the Kulgera Pub, but we couldnâ€™t see a motel attached to it at all so I went inside to ask if this was the right place. (Not that there was anything else that we could see, but you never knowâ€¦) It turned out that the rooms were hidden from view behind the pub. They were actually small cabins with a double and two single beds, a sink, jug and tv, and a bathroom. Not much, but fine for one night.
We got unpacked, and Reagan had already noticed the pool so she decided she wanted to go for a swim. Merv got conned into taking her, and I got to have a nap. Apparently the water was freezing, and they didnâ€™t last very long at all. When I woke up I found them in the pub, Merv playing pool and Reagan cheering him on, while Jordan was quite happy in her pram watching. When the game was finished we had a meal in the pub, and afterwards went back to the room where we spent some time updating our reports, and then went to bed.
