Geraldton was really good to me. I parked my van in an old mates driveway and spent a few weeks in this beautiful part of the world.
With a big inground pool in the backyard, the beach only a block away and good people to crack a cold beer with of an evening, I spent a couple of weeks in paradise. Even Leo had a little buddy, Patch, to play with and he loved the pool and having the run of the place.
It’s always great to catch up with old friends. Having not seen Jason in nearly ten years, it was really good to hang out again. I also loved meeting his partner Corinne, we hit it off really well. Thanks for having me guys, it was awesome to stay with you. You all made me feel so at home and I’ll definitely be back over this way again some time soon. (And I’m still having Ark withdrawals!)
Geraldton was a great place to spend Australia Day. We all had a really enjoyable day around the pool and barbecue, cold drinks in hand. Good way to meet some locals too. It was a very hot day, but that’s always a good thing for Australia Day and we all utilized the pool throughout the heat of the day and beat the heat.
A highlight of Geraldton was a day out with the girls, on a little roadtrip up the coast to Kalbarri. What a beautiful place!
We also had a look at the cliffs around Kalbarri. A bit reminiscent of my Great Ocean Road adventure.
On our way up the coast, we dropped in to check out the Pink Lake. Sadly, it was a bit overcast, so the lake wasn’t as pink as it can be, but it was still good to have a look. I’ve seen the Blue Lake in Mt Gambier and now the Pink Lake. I’ve also heard whispers of a Black Lake further down south, so I’ll keep an eye out for that.
It was a good day out. Thanks Cassie, Corinne and Taylah for showing me the sights.
So thanks again Geraldton. You’re all so friendly and welcoming. Until next time, stay cool.
