We set off for home about 7am, taking the more direct Great Northern Highway than the coastal route. Estimates had us arriving by Sunday at 11am...however, we encountered a few challenges.
|Wildlife crossing - most frequently we encountered emus, some kangaroos, and even cows!|
After much surveying of the land by our captain and co-captain, it was determined, with a few other vehicles desperate to find a workaround, to head into the bush and take the farm road. It was a bit dicey at times, but so very interesting!
|I was a bit late with the camera, but there was a wooly sheep skeleton with its foot still stuck in the fence. Poor thing.|

|The road train that was run off the road the night before by a drunk driver, sadly killing the driver of the road train.|
Our stop for Saturday night was in Dongara. We picked up a pizza on the way in, and pulled up to another great spot overlooking the ocean. It was very windy and cold, but Caden was still up for a shell search. We had a great hike along the beach.
|Our final morning. The kids did not want to move out of the campervan!|
