Bye Bye Busselton

I've bidden Busselton farewell. After 6 good years we have officially left and are about to start a new life at Ocean Grove.

Alex and I got on the road at about 2.00 this afternoon and are currently in Esperance, staying the night at Chris' place.

I managed to knock off a dozen or more jobs on my to do list this morning, packed the car, handed over the keys to the tenants, went and said goodbye to Favourite Daughter and we hit the road.

We stopped in Bridgetown just long enough to drop off some paintings and hedge trimmers at Mum and Walter's, say another goodbye then continued on via Kojonup, Gnowangerup, Ongerup and Jerramungup!

Despite warnings about kangaroos between Ravensthorpe and Esperance we didn't see a single roo, and are glad about it too. Chris had some great spaghetti waiting for us on arrival at 10.30.

It's great to have a rest stop available here before we set off for the big drive east in the morning. The next significant stop will be at Wudinna to see Vicki.

Should make it to Geelong late Saturday or early Sunday.
Birchy and his family are currently staying at the Ocean Grove caravan park so I'm really looking forward to catching up with them when I get there.

Mrs Holt Press and Sport Boy picked up the keys and went and had their first look at the house today, and they liked it. He has his school uniform so is all set to start at his new school on Monday.

Alex is asleep and snoring gently in a swag on Chris' loungeroom floor. As the senior and better looking 
guest I get a real bed! I'll be heading there shortly.
