On friday we went to meet the Ellis family in Geraldton. Even though we had never met before they were very welcoming and helped us prepare for our trip up north. We bought a fan and a fridge, so we should be able to deal with the heat and humidity when we get up there. We also met some of their friends and family at the foreshore and a bbq, they were all very friendly and gave us lots of travel advice. We had some very tasty food, a welcome change to the peanut butter sandwitches we practically live off. We had a lovely time in Geraldton and are very grateful to the Ellis family for letting us stay.
