2004 Travels May 16

SUNDAY 16 MAY   QUAGI BEACH TO ALBANY   448kms

Today was a long, rainy, windy day. The driving conditions were most unpleasant, and whichever one of us was driving needed great concentration.

We stopped to fuel up at Ravensthorpe ($1.11cpl). This small-ish town, once a copper and gold mining base, appeared to have had its natural decline halted by talk of BHP setting up a big nickel mining project here. Presumably, they would ship the product out through Esperance, which would be good for the economy of that town, too.

We were relieved to reach Albany and go into the Emu Beach Caravan Park, at Emu Point. This was a Top Tourist Park and after discount cost us $18.90 a night. Its beach front location had drawn us, despite the weather. We found it a very pleasant park.

  1. We stayed in that park a few years ago and it is still a lovely park.
