Back to Hawker for the morning to get van fixed and meet some grey nomads having repairs as well, they hadn’t seen their grandkids for a few weeks and adopted our boys for the morning, showing them their new i-pad and watching Foxtel in there huge 5th wheeler (the largest van I have seen!) kids loved it. Mike and I had time to wonder the town and catch up on emails.
Spent 4 nights enjoying the wonderful hospitality of the Cooks in Leigh Creek, kids had a ball playing together, we toured the town, Susannah and I had some power walks – just like old times. We visited the coal mine and Aroona dam which was a beautiful spot; we saw a snake and Susannah found a snake skin. Had a drink at the Copley pub, watched the local monthly Motor-cross racing, Martin and Mike took the Kids to the movies while Susannah and I drank a bottle of wine and had a great catch up. Martin cooked us fabulous food, we did heaps and had a great time. Check out the pics
Thanks again Martin Susannah Gypsy and Archie for opening your home to us and showing us around it was great to see you and we wish you all the best for your time in the outback.
