It’s been an eventful day having already been to visit the dolphins at Monkey Mia and the Stromatolite Colonies at the Hamelin Pool Marine Nature Reserve. Now it’s time to relax and smell the flowers. Mom has been working away on her bio in the back of the RV with me, while Chris is taking a turn up front as the co-pilot and is searching through a travel guide for things to do in Perth. So far he wants to go to Kings Park, do the tree top walk, bells from Academy of St. Martins in the Field, Perth mint-see poured gold, touch gold bar, and walk around Freemantle.
This stretch is such a pretty drive-yellow flowers all over, green brush, orange flowering bushes, pink flowers, yellow pods, purple flowering bushes, light purple flowers-the scenery is ever changing and always beautiful. It’s overcast and dim considering it’s only 1 P.M.
It’s about a 4 hour drive to Geraldton. Time to wonder things like-has human intelligence gotten the best of us? Can people live, be happy and smell the flowers anymore? Or do most people prefer to always be doing, having and altering the natural state of the world? If only we could learn a more effective form of communication-not just among ourselves-but with all life-for all areas of existence are ultimately reliant upon one another.
We made a pitstop at a roadhouse with 2 kangaroos and a goat. It’s been fun being surprised by these litle unexpected things-makes the road trip awesome never knowing what you’ll come across next. The landscape changed for a while, no yellow flowers, but it was only a brief lapse and now they are here again stretching on as far as the eye can see on both sides of the highway.
