On the way to our destination today we popped into the local clinic in Jurien Bay for Wendy to get her earache looked at. Guess what, it wasn't her ear at all, she's got an abscess where a wisdom tooth is coming through and has been given antibiotics, big jessy.
After treating the wounded we headed off to Cervantes and the Pinnacles for a sunset tour.
If I had the bottle I'd have taken the campervan to the Pinnacles, especially since the people who wrote the guide book we've been using seemed to have got a much larger van around them. Instead we had the luxury of a 16 seater coach carrying only 5 people including the tour guide, who has been doing this for almost 20 years so was very clued up. In fact he was Billy Connolly's guide 13 years ago when 'the Big Yin' decided to run naked around the Pinnacles. The offer was made available for us to follow in his footsteps, but we declined this time for sake of Anglo-Aussie relations. Mike (the tour guide) did know his stuff and explained everything expertly including how the Pinnacles were formed all those years ago, much to our blank stares. He also did a bit of snake wrangling on the way back to town with a couple of lucky creatures that just happened to be on the road when we came along....including a rather poisonous Carpet Viper he picked up for our amusement. Excellent tour, great guide and I can recommend going for sunset.
