If there is one thing you can be sure about when leaving on vacation it would be how great it is to arrive back home!

Yep…we’re back! A couple days earlier than expected because I was having incredible withdrawal symptoms from not sitting in front of my blog that Deb grew tired of my constant whining…

Not quite true. The weather proved to be a formidable force once we left Albany so we kept moving northwards. We planned to spend a few nights in the Stirling Ranges but continued to Hyden after only one night, due to impending rain, happy in our decision as all we saw was blue skies ahead.

Unfortunately, we didn’t take into account the reason behind the trees bending over as we drove along. Needless to say, our planned couple days in Hyden were cut short as our tent struggled to restrain the near gale force winds which drove at us relentlessly day and night.

We’d had enough by this stage and rather than try our chances elsewhere hedged our bets on a comfortable bed at home, warm showers and a chance to check the stats…
PS. Thanks to all the wonderful contributors who gave you all something far better to read than I could procure. Fortunately, the series will continue as I missed two other contributors who I will add in ensuing days. Thanks also for your wonderful well-wishes for our vacation. We had a great time and are all refreshed and looking forward to more family time – at home.
