Getting bushed

Going bush, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

Next day we decide to move on and explore the forest. We see a sign for Marrinup Falls so head in that direction. There is 1.4 km track down to the falls. What a delightful walk it is, the wild flowers are like natures garden, a profusion of colours, the weather is perfect and when we reach the falls there is also a small pool. Jack takes the opportunity to skinny dip in it.

Two hours later we arrive back at Matilda and head out. But where is out? No signs and with no idea where we are, we just drive on. No worries as we will eventually come out, some where…

The dirt road winds on and on with side tracks going off in all directions, some obviously bike tracks, others quite well defined.

An hour later we came out onto a sealed road but still no sign posts to tell us were we where. Ok time for a cuppa, then take a guess as to which way. Fortunately we made the right guess and ended up at Pinjarra where we wanted to be.

We never thought to set up the GPS…

    Hola Pauline and Jack!
    Love the latest episode with the video and sound, I’m there in the forest listening to the insects and birds, and admiring the flowers along the track… lovely! It must seem very quiet and peaceful after Perth. Kind regards Sandra
