near Luzern, Switzerland - 24th August 2007

By: annbear

Hello everybody,
Here is Shaun the sheep getting ready for his big adventure. He has checked the map, knows what he wants to do and is eager to get started. He is having a nice llast ook around his home from the balcony before he sets off.
All he needs now are some invitations from some kind hosts!!!
Would anyone like to host Shaun? He promises to be good.

Beacon, Western Australia, Australia - 22nd September 2007

By: Emmicoa

Today I finally arrived in Beacon, Western Australia. I was greeted by Palmeke. She was very happy to see me and told me all about her adventures so far. She told me she saw some real sheep yesterday, so Im hoping that I will see some soon too

Datjoin Well, WA, Australia - 23rd September 2007

By: Emmicoa

Today we went for a walk and a picnic at Datjoin Well. We saw some lovely wildflowers and some HUGE rocks!

WOW Imagine trying to hide from police with 12 children :o I wonder what he had done...
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1929a.jpg


I found this nice shady spot surrounded by wildflowers, and thought it was the perfect place for a little rest!
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1936a.jpg

I climbed all the way to the top of this big rock with Palmeke! What do you think the rock looks like?
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/100_1934a.jpg

After our walk we found a nice shady spot for a picnic lunch. I discovered that you can't have a picnic here without two things - ants and FLIES, so many FLIES :o I might have to get one of those Aussie hats with the corks to keep those horrible flies away. I think I spent more time shooing the flies off my food than I did eating :mad:
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1941a.jpg


Somebody has made this bush barbeque for everyone to use! Its a shame that its is too hot and dry for a barbie at the moment :thinking:
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1943a.jpg


We went for a drive a bit further along the track and saw these amazing rocks! Im sitting under the really big one, but it might be a bit hard to see me because the rocks are SO BIG!

This is the big rock from the other side
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1951a.jpg

I found the perfect place to relax while I looked at the wildflowers
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1953a.jpg

We saw lots more wildflowers as we were driving, this is me looking out the windscreen at more wildflowers

On the road, WA, Australia - 1st October 2007

By: Emmicoa

Today was very busy with lots of preparations for our long drive. Emmi is taking us to Perth for the school holidays, its about a three and a half hour drive to get there.

Once we hit the road I looked eagerly out the window. Gee the places around here sure have some funny names :o

Cadoux, WA, Australia - 1st October 2007

By: Emmicoa

As we neared Cadoux, we saw several signs marking where some of the earthquake fault lines lay

We stopped at Cadoux to find out more about the earthquake. Can you see me sitting on the edge of that hollow tree stump with Palmeke & Jimmy D?

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/100_1978.jpg

As we drove out of Cadoux we saw another CBH grain receival point. We have seen several of these so far & Emmi explained that this is where the farmers take their grain to be stored & then loaded onto trains for transporting.
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1981.jpg

The road streched out in front of us far into the distance
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1982.jpg
After a while I decided it might be a good idea to have a nap

Dowerin, WA, Australia - 1st October 2007

By: Emmicoa

The sleep must have made time go quickly, because before I knew it we were in Dowerin!

Every year Dowerin hosts a big event called the Dowerin Field Days (www.dowerinfielddays.com.au) The event is a serious expo of farm machinery and equipment, from headers to water tanks and everything in-between. There are no livestock displays and certainly no sideshows, however there is a very large Family Interest Display section, situated under cover and featuring a vast array of products, from honey to craftwork through to kitchen accessories. People travel from all over the place, and children in surrounding areas even get a day off school to go :o


Emmi's kids were very excited when they saw the Tin Dog in Dowerin. They told me that when they see the Tin Dog, they know that we are half way to Perth :) Dowerin is in "Tin Dog Country" and the giant Tin Dog sits near Tin Dog Creek B)
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_1992.jpg

Across the road from the Tin Dog, there is some old farm machinery on display at the information bay. We stopped there for a while so we could have a bit of a play

Northam, WA, Australia - 1st October 2007

By: Emmicoa

As we drove on, the roads gradually got wider than they were in Beacon, first we had a single lane road with dirt on the sides, then it changed to a dual lane road at Dowerin (one lane in each direction) until finally at Northam it became a multi lane highway :o I noticed that the wider the roads got, the less people liked to wave when they saw us :thinking:

This is the view of the Avon Valley and Northam, from the Great Eastern Highway

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_2123.jpg

Looking out at the crops near Northam, some in the front look almost ready to harvest, and some behind that are still green.
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_2128.jpg

In August, Northam is the staring point for the Avon descent, the worlds greatest white water event for paddlers and power dinghy racers (www.avondescent.com.au)

Perth City, WA, Australia - 9th October 2007

By: Emmicoa

Today we travelled into Perth City. We had a bit of a walk around before heading down to the foreshore for a play at the park

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_2003.jpg



View of the 'skyscrapers' in Perth. The Bankwest (the pointy looking tower) & Allendale (just to the left and behind the Bankwest tower) towers are the tallest buildings in Perth
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_2010.jpg

View looking towards Kings Park, with the Swan Bell Tower in the middle :)
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m294/emmicoa/Toy%20voyagers/Shaun%20the%20sheep/100_2011.jpg

There is a lot of construction going on in Perth at the moment. We saw so many cranes! Here are a couple of them. Some of them were flying the Eureka flag. This signifies that the building site uses Union labour (all workers on site must be a member of the Builders Union to enter)

Fremantle, WA, Australia - 12th October 2007

By: Emmicoa

Today we went to Fremantle for lunch, but Emmi forgot the spare batteries for the camera  :thinking: Fremantle is a Port city and most people call it Freo for short.

We had fish and chips at Cicerellos and watched the boats come and go. One even collided with the jetty which gave everyone some amusement  :p The seagulls were everywhere and desperate for us to throw them some chips. After lunch I had a BIG chocolate ice cream :D

Beacon, WA, Australia - 15th October 2007

By: Emmicoa

Back in Beacon once again, and I had my first encounter with some native Australian wildlife - a bobtail lizard! There were two sleeping under the tree, but one was scared and ran away
