Time does tell it’s tale. As we were 25 klms out of Albany towards Esperance the temperature gauge sky rocketed. We pulled over and called the RAC they came out 2 hours later saying yep she needed to be towed, 2 hours later we arrived back at Albany Gardens CP.

Dear oh dear. It took another 3 nights to fix the car apparently the radiator was 30% blocked and this was the reason for the soaring temperatures.

On the first stay in Albany we headed to the Albany Agricultural show and the kids had one a ride and a showbag to share. We went around all the animal exhibits and particularly enjoyed the Alpaca’s being sheared, they were spitting and crying out. Most parents were shocked and dismayed and removed their children, I thought it was hilarious and we watched three undergo this procedure. Certainly wasn’t the type of exhibition that would lead to an increase in farming Alpaca’s, although maybe that’s what they wanted.

The kids all chose to go on a bubble ride that you hop inside this gigantic bubble and roll around on water, unfortunately Lilianna’s wasn’t so water proof and she got soaked. They offered to put in another one and she went back in and had an extra long go.

We also attended church at Albany and the kids enjoyed Sabbath School and the message was good from the visiting Conference Officer.
