Well after 3 days and 2700 km we are finally in Albany. As we left Esperance it was very hot and windy and temperatures reached 40C. We were very lucky as a bushfire started due to the terrible weather not long after we passed through. The last thing we needed would be to run into a blocked road due to the bushfire.
We were concerned about strong winds in Albany delaying the helicopter flight. Fortunately the winds will be OK in the morning. There will be rain and strong winds in the afternoon but we'll get to the island before that. It does mean that there will be strong winds and rain when we'll be setting up antennas but that's all part of the adventure.
