Last post. There were two things we needed to do before we left. We needed to drive across the Nullarbor ourselves and then we needed to see the sea. First we borrowed our Assistant Manager's clapped out Cortina and drove to Eucla and back. We stopped at Mundrabilla where the aliens supposedly picked up a car. The boy at the the pumps had definitely had medical experiments preformed on him. He stood at the car window, staring. Never said a word. And yes, the Cortina broke down on the way back. A guy fixed it for us by shoving a tiny pebble in the fuel sender. It turned out he was the boyfriend of our first cook. It really is a small world out there and the co-incidences too crazy. He was just driving along the Eyre Highway, coming the other way. After that we took the site Ute and drove down a dirt track to Esperance where we bought Terry a huge beach fishing rod. We hand picked a dozen international premium beers from the bottle shop and then I sat on the beach while Terry threw rig after rig into the wild azure coloured water... And then we left...
