SUNDAY 25 APRIL ESPERANCE
After breakfast, took ourselves off to the Tourist Information/historic Museum complex.
There were a number of craft outlets within the historic area. John got a leather maker to put a tie, or thong, onto the good Akubra hat he’d bought last year in Charleville. Without this, it was only going to be a matter of time before it was lost forever, off a cliff or jetty!
I bought a beaded anklet, for $6 – a pretty little thing.
There were some Anzac Day commemorations happening in the town.
After lunch back at the van, we went for a walk. There was a very pleasant path along the Esplanade – pretty, interesting, and with the sea outlook to the offshore islands, that were part of the large stretch of islands making up the Archipelago of the Recherche.
We walked as far as a shipping pier where a boat was unloading something that was grey and dusty – fertilizer?
Couldn’t make actual phone contact with John’s travelling cousin, but our criss-crossing phone messages established that they were leaving Perth tomorrow, heading back to Melbourne, so our paths will not quite intersect, this trip.
