With both rigs covered in mud it was not a hard decision to go off the bitumen and explore some more caves. The first on the hema was Murra-El-Eleven which turned out to be a big sink hole. After that it was a 11klm drive on good dirt road to the very well know Cocklebiddy Cave which so far has been explored some 6.5klms in. Over the years teams of drivers have negotiated long tunnels of water and then carted all there gear over only to do it all again for 6.5ks not a bad effort. The next small hole just of the highway was Carguna blow hole which was just that a small hole but a good camp a bit further in .
The Next day we did the most ks we have done the entire trip something about heading for home. With lunch at Norseman lookout and then a camp just west of Coolgardie for a last night together.The night was made extra special sitting around the camp fire and watching the eclipse. In the morning it was time for our good byes but we hope only for a short time as we plan to spend new year at Fozzie in Mandurah . We still had a few days to go as we planed to visit family in York and then one more night at Lake Indoon.
Arriving home the first job was to get the high pressure cleaner out and get rid of all the mud and the second was to go out with Arron our son and put the lobster pots in. It has been a good season for the lobsters but being nearly Xmas i thought it might be to late for us. The next morning we where rewarded with 8 crays and from then on we have been getting our quoter of 12 crays a day only pulling 2 or 3 pots of our 4pots that we are allowed. Well back home things are all good and it wont be till next year that we are of again we hope you all have a Happy Christmas and a Wonderful New Year .
But they taste just as good.
