Oh my god, Esperance is beautiful. Just went to the pier tavern. Beautiful cheap pub meals. Great staff, great atmosphere. What more could you ask for...oh i know, they had a salad and vegies bar, all you can eat...Yum! If we ever decide to come back to WA i recon i live here, it's really nice. Locals are even helpful, like we went to one pub and it was a real dive, just for the locals this one was, real dark and dingey...and the menu was a little bizzare so i said to Shane lets see what else is around. So we were driving around the town trying to find something else but was getting a little lost..so i pulled into a parking bay, to read the town map that we were given, and was trying to find where all the tavern's were located...Mean while Shane started talking to a guy that was parked near us, and asked him if he was a local, which he was, well not only did we find out where the taverns where, who had the cheapest and nicest meals, but we basicaly got a tour of the town without having to go anywhere...So we now know where everything in town is, just havnt seen it all yet ha ha ha.
So right now we are camping at the Esperance showgrounds. We tryed getting into the caravan park that we were booked into last night, but they are fully booked out as is every other caravan park, motel, hotel and apartments in Esperance. So all these place's that cant fit you in send you here, it's got all you need, shower's, toilet, BBQ facilities, powered sites, it cost you $27 a night, which is cheaper than the caravan parks as they are charging high peak prices at the moment. I would say there is about 80 - 100 of us camping here, there was only about 50 when we got here, but they just keep coming in...
Shane is at the jetty, and im here by myself in the caravan, i was suppose to go with him, but it's sooooo cold here at the moment and really windy, so he said it was alright if i didnt want to go, and at the chance to not go i grabbed it...me and the cold dont mix, and the wind goes right through you, Shane on the other hand has an internal heater, im sure of it. LOL.
6 am start tomorrow, laptop is fully charged, so i'll be sure to post some time during the day tomorrow to tell you all how we are getting along, hopefully knock the nullarbour on the head and get that over and done with! No more messing about now, we've had enough fun with drama's for the rest of the trip...ha ha ha...All part of the fun though!
