A Drive To Narrogin

On Thursday I went with Gordon, Jess and Livvie to the funeral of an elderly relative in Narrogin. It's almost 200kms from here, up through the Darling Ranges at Jarrahdale and then down the Albany Highway to Williams. After many miles of driving through jarrah forests it was delightful to see the first fields of wheat and realise that we'd entered Western Australia's vast wheatbelt.

We stopped for a short break at a roadhouse that has these two gentle alpacas and took a few photos...Olivia was cautious at first...

This is the bridge and the Albany Highway... the countryside is already very dry

I took 3 photos at the cemetery, it's hard to convey the heat, dryness, utter stillness and quiet, no buildings in sight and it is still a beautiful place in it's own right, Narrogin averages 44C in February ...

Went to tee-ball yesterday and Olivia won an encouragement award, she is a very quiet achiever and quite different from Jessie, both are equally wonderful ;)

I haven't posted for a few days after reaching my space limit on Blogger so have taken the plunge and bought some more GBs. Others have been removing photos and re-sizing them but I really didn't want to do that so I should be safe for another 10 years now!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend,
Love from Sue
