Patrick and Derek came over from
Bunbury. Ken and Toni met us for tea
at the pub then headed back to Perth. We met David at Ongerup and Brian
met us at Hyden.
Lots of wonderful wildflowers along the way,
which we stopped and looked at and took photos of. Weather was beaut on
way over, lovely when we got to Hyden.
Lake King was majestic riding over the salt
flats, for us that haven’t done it before.
No dramas on way over, but Jo got a bit
stressed when her booked
accommodation was given to someone else, and the caravan park was fully
booked out (the lady was not “user-friendly” in Jo’s eyes!), though
Chris Sainty did suggest we send her an enrolment form to the
hospitality and tourism course at Tafe!
With Jo having no abode, Warwick nearly got
lucky, but then again, so
did Andy’s dog in the car! Finally, it was decided that Jo would share
Chris’ double bed at the hotel. Everyone was very happy!
We all checked out Wave Rock, very impressed
and well worth the ride.
Great meal at the pub.
Rode home and said our goodbyes to
to Patrick and Derek at
Lake Grace, later David at Pingrup. Met one of the ‘policemen’ (aka Jim
Sharpe) and his offsider, Max (aka Double Trouble) on our way to
Pingrup. They joined us for lunch at Amelup, where Jim shouted everyone
sausage rolls! Everyone was chilled through at this stage, bitter
winds. Cruised home to sunny Albany, great weekend, great ride. Thanks
