the pinnacles dessert

unfortunately due to rough weather conditions i didnt get woken up at stupid o'clock to go get the craypots in and fish. darn that weather!!! im not the most seafaring person and with only one life saving arm and a tin boat the size of a small child i wasnt overly keen on hitting the waters!

so bruce and i headed off to the pinnacles desert (or is it dessert? sorry mum, i still cant remember!) in the nambung national park. i was expecting a few sticky-uppy rocks a bit taller than me. what they actually are are hundreds of sticky-uppy rocks spread for a long way, mainly shorter than me!! they were pretty amazing though. its like an ancient cemetary, or like a giant, a long time ago, threw a whole heap of massive stones up and they landed randomly all over the place! something to do with sandstone, erosion and weather! i knew i should have listened more in geography at school!

not far from the pinnacles we stopped at a place called kangaroo point, but better still, hangover bay!! (theres one for you kerry.

more pinnacles!
.. come to think of it, all of you!). and we saw a long line of huge furry caterpillars crossing the road! well it was a line until bruce knocked the first one so they ended up going round in a circle! it was a weird but cool sight!

we got home about 4 and after having a quick beer it was moving day for me! so i headed into northam to stay with rob and di (tina's mum and dad). more olives in the evening, this time pipping them and making it into tapenade! despite being sick of the sight of olives it was a good social event- ok, so there was more champagne to be drunk, but it was good to meet some new people.
