Barradale, WA

This morning we had doubts about towing the van up the steep road to Vlamingh Head lighthouse. It turned out to be easier than it looked and well worthwhile. We camp for the night at the Barradale Rest Area which is beside the Yannarie River. It is a well appointed rest area and we are kept entertained watching the road trains as they approach the bridge. The highlight being when one prime mover tows another fully loaded four tray road train across the bridge, now that’s torque. He’d have no trouble getting up to the lighthouse.
Our neighbour John and his little dog Bill join us for a drink. “Bill’s been to Jenny Craig you know, lost 2 stone.” And so it went for an hour or more, John kept us in stitches telling us about how his albino cousin got sick and ‘the wife’ parked the rig in the hospital car park. “Had no problems keeping the power up to it as she’d parked under a halogen light. The solar panel was drawing energy day and night!” “There’s cooks, cuckoos and willful murderers” says John. “Will ya stop washing those wheels Bill”.
