Welcome to Day 3 of our little adventure. Today was an active day!
All caught up? Good.
So. Had big plans to get up and watch the sunrise. Well, I was up. The sun rose. Didn't see it though. Crappy view.
I dragged Mr Hausfrau out of bed and we started the morning with a 3km walk around the Meeka Creek Trail
The entire 3km was littered with crap and most signs had been vandalised! The further I walked the more pissed off I got!
Grrrrrrrr - don't. even. get. me. started.
*mutter* disrespectful - disgraceful - disgusting *mutter*
Afterwards we walked down to the truck stop, you know the one, the one with the freaking trucks that kept us up all night, for a nice coffee. Then we packed up camp, hit the road and headed back towards Cue. We had some exciting places to visit!
First stop was the tourist info shop for some town knowledge. Mr Hausfrau had been to the area a few years back but says he doesn't remember. He didn't even remember that he had stayed in Cue before! I say old age. He says it wasn't memorable enough to remember.
We missed the Outback Triathlon by 2 days! Bugger! I would have loved to have seen this as I was meant to be doing the local Duathlon back in Perth on the Sunday but the chance of a getaway won out over it though... Meh, next year.
All info'd up we hit the road and started the drive towards the historic ghost town of Big Bell. Once a thriving mining town it's a shell of its former glory with a few remaining building and tributes to its glorious history.
We even got to see our only snake of the whole trip! It's a Ringed Brown Snake!
|The pics on the left and right are the ones we took and hard to see. The middle photo is one I prepared earlier from here.|
It was down the bottom of an old well type concrete thingy. We were perfectly safe.
Next stop was the absolutely amazing Walga Rock!
It is the second largest monolith in Australia. First being Uluru.
First we explored the cave with all the aboriginal rock painting.
Next we drove around it.
Then. Yeah you know what's coming don't you?
WE FREAKING CLIMBED IT!
IT. WAS. AWESOME!
Heading back to Cue we checked in at the Cue Tourist Park. What a great place! (free plug! free plug! free plug!) They've just expanded and have all new facilities. Very awesome facilities! They even have a TV room! Not that we needed it but would be great if camping with kidlets!
We found a spot right behind the old gaol and set up camp.
After lunch and a refreshing shower (in the awesome shower facilities) we were off again to walk around the town and checked out some historic buildings.
After such an active day it was dinner and early to bed.
No Belgian chitty chatty back packers.
No cold weather.
Still no sleep!!
To be continued.......
