On my return journey from Perth to Dongara on the 12th March I did a number of things that I have not reported on. Thought I'd do so today.
After my detour through Gingin and the Western Bamboo property, I made my way back onto the Brand Highway. I'd taken some more photos of Grass Trees, and then found this old deserted house. I drove past, but then backed up safely to get out of the car and take the photo. There was not a lot of traffic at the time which was good.
I continued on to Cataby, where I stopped for a bit to eat and a rest - not that I was particularly tired, but didn't think I would have to stop between there and Dongara. Taking my drink and food to the seating area at the side of the service station I sat alone - only for a few minutes!
Soon I had many green feathered friends, who sat on my table and ate the crumbs from my hand. There were quite a few of them that sqwarked and flew around, politely eating what I had left out for them at the table. The last time I was at Cataby was a year or so ago, when violent thunderstorms were seen in the west - I remember it well as we tried to get ahead of the storms on our way to Perth. Much more pleasant visit this time.
Onwards from Cataby, I was keen to find some flowers that I had taken photos of previously and these are the photos that I lost when my camera had a hissy fit.
I have not been able to find the name of these flowers - they are like delicate clouds floating on the side of the road.
There was a park that I had wanted to see too - and I soon came to the turn off, and turned in. I had seen other vehicles there as I passed previously, but on this day I was the only one in the park. Coomallo Park is a wonderful conservation area.
It was my last stop before safely arriving in Dongara late in the afternoon.
