A long drive back to Perth*

We checked out at 10 a.m. and drove 600 kilometres along the Albany Highway. I did about two-thirds of that, since most of it involved going in a straight line and the only real challenge was not to fall asleep or get my right arm seared by the scorching sun.
We stopped over a few times, first at Kojunup for a lovely Country Kitchen sandwich lunch (we didn’t have much choice because the only other two restaurants in that sleepy little town looked like Sloppy Joes). Mum took over the wheel for a while before we changed places at Williams, further up north. We stopped near Armadale where mum proceeded with the rest of the journey all the way into Perth.
We managed to do a little shopping at David Jones, and I bought two … get this … red shirts! I actually bought something red! (Good friends who have been bemoaning my black and blue wardrobe hereby have permission to do a mad dance around the room for one minute).
Needless to say, by the end of the day I was exhausted, and fell asleep very early this evening.
