Chit Chat / What have you been doing today?
« on: July 28, 2021, 09:43:26 am »
KAtie that’s about right for the canola over here. Obviously much earlier than over your way.
This morning we went for a walk around town. I really enjoyed it. Lots of damage to homes from cyclone Seroja still not fixed. On the way back we got chatting to some ‘older’ ladies who were able to give me lots of fascinating gossip. It was great. They told us of a coffee caravan that was here for the tourist season so we had a coffee there.
This afternoon we went for a long walk along a wildflower trail. Nice but too early for wildflowers.

My old school and where I also taught long ago.
KAtie we did go through the water. It was on a road I knew extremely well. I used to drive my little Vauxhall Viva through that sort of thing when I taught up here.

Mab your DH is very naughty.
Marina that is good news for you. It sounds as though our wild weather came over to you. Perth is having some wild weather again tomorrow morning. I keep getting texts and emails from the insurance company saying red alert. I canít say I like it much.
Today was lovely in Morawa. Cool and overcast.

Life is never boring for you KAtie. We went up to a couple of places north of Morawa to see if there was any flowers, not a lot yet. Then we went out to have a look at the farm. There was water over a lot of the roads. It was lovely though.
No Judy, I don’t really know many people here now. The older ones have fallen off the perch and most of the ones my age have left the farms. The farms have got bigger as the machinery has. It needs less people to work them.

Canola on our old farm.
Water over the road near the farm.

Thank you Judy. The wind dropped some time during the night but we had heavy rain. DD said Perth was bad but everything is ok at home.

We are having our typical caravan food. Grilled steak and salad. Lucky we can use the gas as the caravan park/town have lost power.

How exciting to have heated seats. I think you certainly need them over there Chookie. We left home about 9 this morning. We had a pleasant drive and ended up in Morawa, my home town. It turned out we did 523km but it didn’t seem that far. We looked out for wildflowers but there are very few. It seems a bit early. We will have to come back in a few weeks.

I have a bottle of Benjamin Port ready to go. A promise from DH that if it is too windy we can pull the top of the van down. We have a pop top van. We made sure we didnít park under any trees, although the trees here are short and spindly. I think cyclone Seroja did a good job on them.

You are very good Chookie. We had a car run today up  into the hills, it was very nice. Then we came down the zig zag. We lent our black Model A to the same young guy again and he lent us his 1971 Jaguar something or other. It is truly magnificent and so very different to the Model A's. We had such a smooth ride and it went round the corners on the zig zag so very well. Some of the Model A's had to have 2 tries at getting round the corners as they double back onto themselves.
We got home and have been busy packing the van.

A reasonably pleasant day here with quite a lot of sunshine and very little rain. I received a text from the insurance company a while ago saying there will be gale force winds etc tomorrow night. I will worry twice as much as we will be away.
