We are aiming to keep our driving to a maximum of 400km per leg as this seems to be the limit of what the girls (mainly Lucy) is able to handle without completely loosing it. We are also trying to stay at each place for a minimum of 3 nights as this is the limit of what Fiona and I are able to handle with setting up and packing up! Having said this, we have done two single night stops to get to where we are now, one was at the Robe River rest area where it was that dusty that the dust had dust on it and the other was in the Big 4 caravan park in Port Hedland that, while being very pleasant, cost us $75 for the night!
Fathers day occurred when were at Robe River and my beautiful girls got me a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition camera (I get the impression that Fiona may have helped them buy it). I am one very lucky dad! Photos and videos from this remarkable little camera to follow!
We then stopped at Cape Keraudren for 3 nights. It is a beautiful spot and we are beginning to see the massive tides that occur up in this part of Australia.
We met a very nice man named Selby who was staying there for 3 months. He was great with the kids and was very keen to help me with a bit of fishing knowledge (and anyone who knows me knows I am in need of a lot!). Selby took me out to the point at low tide and we spent a couple of hours getting our lines wet. I managed to catch a few undersized bream but that was it unfortunately. There we some very large fish to be had but they seemed to be able to chomp through 50 pound line without a problem so they got away.
Each morning we took a dip at the beach which was very pleasant. One morning we were surprised to see a dugong leisurely swimming through the water barely 50 meters away which was pretty cool.
The one down side of Cape Keraudren were the sand flies (or biting midgies). We all got attacked so are a little itchy now … but we have some good drugs so everything will be OK !!!!! Needless to say, we are now actively avoiding places that are renowned for these little buggers because they have a tendency to make life a little bit miserable unfortunately.

We are a family who are just seeking to do what God wants us to do. We have heard God speak and we want to be obedient to his voice, and are excited by what He is going to do when we respond!
