6/27/00: That morning we both slept in late as Darlene still wasn’t over the effects of here sea-sickness. Departed our little bird sanctuary in Second Valley for a breakfast stop in Normanville. Picked up the Dukes Highway (A8) at Tailem Bend. Good road, and not so hilly. But not as lush of a countryside either. Traveled through: Coomandook, Coonalpyn, Culburra Tintanara, Brimbago, Cannawigara and finally Bordertown…where we stopped early for the night to wash clothes. The camp site had a laundry, but after washing a couple of loads, we discovered the dryer wasn’t working. We took our laundry, wet and dry, and finished it up in the community laundromat in town. Fixed supper in the camper, while we washed and dried clothes…sure is convenient having the campervan.
Upon returning to our campsite, we discovered a school bus full of teenagers (36 of them), had pitched their tents, all on one site…right next to us. So we moved to a quieter campsite across the park. Cold rain and wind all night…felt sorry for the poor young campers.
