Hi All

Tuesday 29thMay:

Checked out the Narrogin and nearby places with our tour guide, Lyn. Saw some more orchids and bird life at the local lakes.

Also had the mighty Mazda serviced by the great people at Narrogin Mazda. They fitted me in today and had the service all completed by midday.

Wednesday 30thMay:

Rest day today. Just hung round Lyn’s place and had a very nice lunch at the local pub.

Thursday 31stMay:

Left Narrogin for Hyden (Wave Rock) (200km & 2 hours). Was sad to say goodbye to Lyn (sister) as it has been great having her as our tour guide.

Arrived early afternoon and after lunch and checking into our cabin it was off to Wave Rock (300m walk from our cabin).

Absolutely amazing formation with all the curves colours and textures. Hardly anybody there so mostly had the whole rock to ourselves. Will explore Wave Rock and other formations in the area tomorrow.

Friday 1stJune:

Off exploring the Wave Rock area today. First stop was back at Wave Rock and climbed up on top of the rock. Very interesting place as there are depressions that each have their own little ecosystem growing in them. Also large granite rocks eroded / hollowed out into mystical shapes.

Off for a drive to The Humps and Mulka’s Cave (36km round trip).

Mulka’s Cave has some very old and weathered aboriginal art works. Getting very faded but still able to see the outlines of many hands.

The Humps’ Kalari Trail starts at the cave so an easy start. The trail winds its way up to the summit of The Humps (large granite outcrop) with sweeping views of the surrounding countryside.

On the way home we called into Lake Magic (large salt lake) and Hippo’s Yawn (a cave shaped like a hippo’s mouth).

Saturday 2ndJune:

Back up on top of Wave Rock this morning for a wander. It really is a special place as there is so much to take in around the rock.

Then a short drive into Hyden to see the local junkyard sculptures. These are a series of sculptures made out of local junk depicting the locals and their history through the sculptures.

After lunch a siesta and relaxing afternoon was had by all.

Sunday 3rdJune:

Left Wave Rock for Mary’s Farm Cottages via Lake King, Newdegate (Silo art), Lake Grace and Kukerin (290km & 4 hours with a few stops).

The silo art in Newdegate was amazing as we got to see the artist actually creating it.

Staying at Mary’s Farm Cottages outside Kukerin. Superb place to stay as we sat on the veranda and watched the sunset enjoying a hand delivered home cooked dinner (Chicken Kiev and fresh Yabbies).

Monday 4thJune:

Left Kukerin for Narrogin via Corrigin (250km).

Arrived in Narrogin and back at my sister Lyn’s place. She is away at Uluru at the moment so we have the place to ourselves.

Had a nice quiet afternoon and booked our accommodation for the next two weeks.

Life is good.

Trevor & Guy
