When we left Esperance it was pissing down with rain.
I had tried to repair the wiring on the camper so the batteries would accept charge again without creating a short and start a fire.
Finished the job in the rain. Wendy made sure she got the clothes she wanted and then we had a huge meal at a great restaurant called the Dome.
Needless to say we left Esperance late around 12.30pm.
Us being us we couldn't do things the simple way, so we headed back home via the back way with rain teaming down.
To get back in to the Eyre Hwy we took the Parmango Rd then the Balladonia Rd what a ride that was
Before turn off the road signs stated that these roads were open, 1/2 hour further down the road it said it was closed.
We spoke to some workers at the side of the road that said the road is fine and they had been up and down it over the last couple of days and didn't even know that there was a sign saying it was closed. So we made the decision to continue on.
It was a great drive, yes there were some chopped out sections, plenty of mud ( can post up some footage later) and one section that had water covering the whole Rd, that was bumper deep but firm base, the poor camper copped a beating, it got covered in mud, drowned but pulled through to the other side.
Rex loved having his head out the window trying to catch the spray off the mud and water.
Once we turned onto the Balladonia Rd we came across this old Homestead, it was fully furnished, all open and available for the public to use as long as they liked as long as you respected it and left it in the same condition you found it in.
Here are some more photos of the same homestead
The work shed
Shower and toilet block
Finally the kitchen area
We believe the oven was fully operational.
