Well I have realised I haven’t been keeping up blog posts of our camping trips we have been doing recently. So I am going to try and do a few updates.
Way back in December last year (that’s 2021, I think…who can keep up with this time business) …we took the rooftop tent for a camping trip to Lane Poole reserve in Dwellingup,
The weather was warm and the campsite was lovely. The sites were all quite secluded so no one nearby to bother us.
BUT…..one thing we were not prepared for – MARCH FLIES!!!!!!! OMG! These are not good, not good at all. Giant, falcon sized flies THAT BITE. AND YOU CANT KILL THEM!!! Because if you do it’ll attract all their friends who will come and attack you to avenge the death of their friend.
March flies aside, it was quite lovely there. We stayed at the Chuditch Campground, which was a short stroll away from a large amount of water. Some people were swimming in there and playing bad music on a portable speaker.
We wandered around a bit and enjoyed the nature. Had a can of coffee. That kind of thing.
As the afternoon rolled on, it was time to set up camp, have a drink and cook up some dinner.
It really was lovely there (just don’t mention the flies) Dinner was fish and prawns and a peach salad.
Another look at the water whilst the sun set.
And then it got real dark. There were less flies after dark, so that was nice.
Then we packed up and headed home. We stopped at a fruit farm on the way home and enjoyed a coffee.
And then we were off home. A nice time was had at Lane Poole reserve and we hope to go again sometime soon. But
preferably not during March Fly season!
