Great to see another family out there. Nice writing and great pictures. You are making me want to leave now!

Do you find the Google blog site easy to use? I am currently trying to look at how we can document our trip. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Keep up the great work

google sites was as easy to use as a forum. Thats what I would compare it to. I have no knowledge of web building, but I would say I'm computer literate.

Anything takes time, I think the more I build the blog the more I'll reach the limitations of the site.

Need a bit more time and research, but at the moment its still working for me.

Instalment 4
Left the beachfront at Streaky bay for a trip to Eucla
Plan from Eucla was to coc klbidy (but decided to forgo the caves in the area and the bird Sanctuary at Eyre) and push as far through as possible- Esperance was the stopping point and we stayed 3 nights here.

Includes bogging pics on "unlucky (for me) beach" Cape Le Grand NP

Hope you enjoy- more to follow

Did you get freaked out by the 'creaking' under the tyres driving onto the beach there? The sand is like talcum powder, makes a horrid sound when driving on.

When are you expecting to be in Perth? Would be happy to show you around a local track or two.
