It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly twelve months since we left on the Wheelbarrow Across Australia Run. We have submitted the run documentation to Guinness Records (some time ago) and have had feedback from Guinness Records but hope to hear some good news from them soon.
We are arriving back in Perth on Saturday 3rd October. David is going to run from Lewana (near Ballingup) where fellow Masters runners will be gathered for the long weekend. David will be averaging 50kms for five days and will finish at The Raffles Hotel at Canning Bridge on Saturday 3rd (very apt location after a big run). So if you are free to come and cheer him in just let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 0411747022. I will update you on his arrival time as it gets closer
We are now in Coral Bay after spending six days at Exmouth. The weather in Exmouth was lovely but we encountered some windy days and nights which brought back (nightmares) memories of the Nullarbor.
Our first sight coming into Exmouth was of a huge 1500 passenger liner called the Sea Princess. From 10kms out it looked like the liner was surreally suspended in the landscape. As we neared we could see it parked out in the bay. Passengers we were told, were ferried to the shore for tours of the town and Cape Range National Park. The liner ended up staying in Exmouth for 24 hours and over a year six liners call in.
Not having been to Exmouth for over 10 years we were pleasantly surprised to see a new marina and plush new Hotel (Novatel Hotel). The global slow down had obviously slowed property development of the marina but it looks like the mining boom north will soon kick start the area.
