Mega Dust Storm
Sunday afternoon saw the swift arrival of a HUGE dust we havent seen in decades!!!
This photo is taken from our back patio...overlooking the Kalgoorlie Race Course (where we had spent a wonderful Kalgoolie Cup Day on Saturday)
You can barely see the outline of the marquees and tents...which they were half way though taking down.
Huge dust storm = a nine hour power outage and piles of dust indoors...not happy Jan!!!

Back from Holidays

My favourite beach ...Twilight Cove

Favourite fishing spot and just...being spot...Bandy Creek Harbour.

Michael rock fishing at Lucky Bay...known for having the whitest sand in Aus!

Hi all,We have just got back from our yearly sojourn to Esperance. Esperance for those who dont on the south east coast of Western stop if you travel Antartica!! And you can tell...the water is freezing in Esperance...don't get me wrong...that doesn nothing to lessen the appeal of the place!!! It tests your mettle each time you take a dip...hehe!Esperance is a small, quaint town...despite the fact that it has a huge tourist population during summer and school holidays. Sometimes the place feels like its fit to overflow! I have been going there ever since I was a child...and I still love it!So...I thought I would share some pictures of our Esperance holiday!
