Kalgoorlie to Laverton

No one could fix our car, so Don and Dad bought parts from Coventry’s and fitted the water pump at the caravan park, but couldn’t fix the seal. They even broke Dad’s big lever trying!

They found a service station that let them use the air gun to undo the big nut and they changed it themselves whilst the mechanic worked on someone else’s car.
We eventually got going and headed north at lunch time after doing some shopping.
We drove through Menzies and saw the old buildings including an old butchers with a seat at the front of the shop where people could wait to have their meat cut up.

We drove onto a dirt road towards Niagra Dam where we had intended to camp, but still had time in the day so pushed on and found a spot off the road behind some hills and set up camp.
Perhaps we were the first people ever to camp on that spot and we had a great fire.
