Today we were going to see the Indian Ocean! Somehow, it didn't occur to me before we got here that we would get to see a 'new' ocean - I was just thinking of Australia as being in the middle of the Pacific. Duh. Anyway, our awesome hosts Jenny and Bob got us properly warmed up with a hot brekky (more Vegemite!) and a cuppa, and off we went for another exciting day full of new experiences. Geraldton is right on the west coast of Australia about 263 miles north of Perth. It's a city of a little over 30,000 people - you can read about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geraldton,_Western_Australia and here's a map to give you an idea about its location:
Here are some pix of things we saw along the way: This first shot is sort of a memorial to a man near Lynton Station, which was a convict hiring station near Port Gregory. The man on the bike is a replica of the late Ron Simkin high on the hill overlooking his property.
