I did do some stitching and knitting on my long train trip though I also enjoyed a couple of books. I started this cross stitch while at Corrimal and finished it on the trip. Just need a Santa to do between the trees.

We enjoyed our days on the Indian Pacific and were amazed at the huge country we live in. The scenery was amazing and even the Nullarbor was interesting too. The food on the train was great and it was interesting getting off at the various stops on the way. My only complaint was that I didn't sleep that well on the train. It certainly didn't rock me to sleep. Here is a map of the journey.
The first place we visited was Kalgoorlie at 9pm at night. It was a bit strange driving around the quiet town in the dark. We visited the mine and saw a play and some huge trucks!
We continued overnight and were in Adelaide for breakfast. We went on a walking tour in the drizzly rain. It was very good and the breakfast provided was yummy too.
On the last norning we were to go on a Blue Mountains walk but the weather forecast was chilly and rain so we decided to head back to Sydney. We had a quick lunch with Ma and then headed home. I must admit I slept very well in my own bed.

After out few days in Wollongong we headed to Sydney for one night and then got up at 4.30am to catch a flight to Perth. We enjoyed Friday wandering around Perth even though we were fairly tired after our early morning and also because of the time change in WA.
Bruce got up early on Sunday to take these pictures of Perth.
We were in Perth as on Sunday we were going across Australia on the Indian Pacific train! We spent 3 nights on the train and it was a very interesting journey with amazing scenery. Here I am about to board.

We went away on Monday 8th October and headed to Corrimal to spend some time with our daughter and the little men. It was fun but it rained for most of the time we were there except for a windy time at the beach on Monday afternoon and on Tuesday when the weather was better. The boys loved the beach.
On Wednesday it was really wet so we went to Inflatable world for some fun bouncing!
Bruce and I also had to pack to go to a funeral on Tuesday afternoon. I want to write about it here as Uncle Alan was such a lovely gentleman. We celebrated his amazing life of 94 years.
