Hi all
Of interest to those travelling to the SW of W.A. over the next few months. Last week we took off to spend a couple of nights at Wright's Bridge between Balingup & Nannup only to find that it had been burnt out in a bushfire a couple of months ago and is completely closed (and looks most unattractive). As an alternative we spent a couple of nights at Grimwade townsite (abandoned) which we thought was magnificent. Push down the tracks far enough and you will find a large cleared area and a small dam not very far away.

yeh Bundy, how'd it all go?

sorry I didn't make it, a long day laying limestone blocks on Sat and a few too many beers during and after the job rendered me usless on Sun. thank god for the easter bunny and his annual deposit of choccy eggs! kept the midgets at bay for a little while at least!

Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how popular it remains!

Yep, a real lousy weekend.

Secluded campsite surrounded by beatiful trees, one fishing rod length away from the river, trout and marron marching onto the bbq plate, interesting track into and out of the place, great bunch of people...always a laugh to be had and some stories that whet the appetite for more travel.

Thanks Bundy, Matt & Danica, Rick, Scott, Steve & Anne for such a lousy weekend....lol.

Cheers.......Lionel.

John Hi

I use to do some work at Grimwade, in my day.

Logging at Fort Courage "F Troop" one of Parmers Timber mills.

On the Right when coming into town from Donnybrook,

Nice part of the world.

Cheers

Richard
