8th October

Thank god the wind has abated overnight. We did have a much better travelling day especially fuel consumption.

Time zone changes and daylight saving has left us totally confused. Plenty of trucks, wide loads and caravans travelling today.Unfortunately for the wildlife, bodies scattered along the roadside. We did see one Emu wandering the road.

The Nullarbor is dead flat and boring until we turned off to the Head of the Bight. We enjoyed a break here for an hour. There is an information centre with a boardwalk & viewing platforms along the cliff top. From here we could view the whales. We were lucky enough to spot three or four whales lazing on the surface. Occasionally we would see a tail or flipper slap.

After viewing the whales we brought some fresh home made jam drops. Yum Yum. We continued on our way. Our stop tonight is the roadhouse at Nundroo Historic Pub.

The price of fuel is crazy. We were told not to fuel up at Nullarbor Roadhouse at $2:01 but wait until you get to Nundroo which was $1:62. Lucky we had a good travelling day and made it to Nundroo just as the fuel warning light came on. We were not worried as we had spare on board.

The Historic Pub is a bit old,very tired and run down but it will do for the night. Lots of campers in the which led to a very happy hour or two with lots of laughs.
