Albany was a nice town, but, after not seeing a “big” town for so long, it was quite a shock to us! Do people really need that many shops? Do they really need to buy that much stuff? As we drove through town past all the shops selling more and more stuff it really made us thankful for how minimalistically we live and how much value we place on all of our possessions. That being said, it was nice to be able to buy Gypsy a new jumper and to pick up a couple of items we had been wanting to buy for a while.
As it turned out, Albany was not to be a quick stop. The weather was TERRIBLE so we tried to hold out on the sightseeing but eventually gave up and did it in the rain and wind. Roh visited the Anzac memorial which he enjoyed, and we all enjoyed the free hot showers. The weather gods really didn’t want us to explore.
Ned decided that he was going to have a few hiccups, so we became quite familiar with the auto electricians there, and spent a nice couple of days exploring the freecamps in the area.
Albany was nice, a good sized town to live in. But next time I think I’d like to be able to explore it more in the sun.
