Today our journey ended at Norseman. We made an early start and headed off for what was to be six and a half hours of driving. We managed to stop at grassy parks for both of our stops for the doggos along the way.
We had planned to stop every couple of hours for them, but they were travelling so well, sleeping most of the time, that we decided to give them a bit longer as long as they were happy. It was certainly much more comfortable in the car than outside in the approx 40°C heat.
The drive from Coolgardie was very pretty with the sun shining on the trunks of the gums along the way.The road was quiet, there wasn’t much traffic at all, particularly heading east, as we are.
We arrived in Norseman at about 2:30, earlier than we expected, and checked into a very quiet caravan park. There ended up being only three cabins occupied (including ours), and two caravans. Covid is definitely having a huge effect on businesses along the way.
Accommodation tonight is very basic and very small. The cabin has no ensuite; ensuite cabins apparently aren’t suitable for pets, so we have to use the communal ablutions blocks. I guess we’re lucky things are as quiet as they are.
