Ailsa of <Where’s my backpack> Has given us a challenge about parks and has shown us an amazing park in NYC. Well worth going and having a look at. I have done a post about the Bungle Bungle Range, World Heritage Site, in Australia you can see it on <Gypsy Life>
Discussing it with my partner Jack he said how about caravan parks? So Ailsa this is a bit outside the square of what I think you intended, but caravan parks are a very big part of the journey when you are on the road for extended periods. We prefer freedom camping but have also stayed at many caravan parks, good bad and indifferent.
This one we could only describe as quirky….
We knew it was different when we pulled up at the office to book in. Wow look at all those old loos, what a good way to use them.
Ravensthorpe was a small rural community on the coast road between Albany and Esperance in Western Australia. It had been mined for gold in the 1880’s, followed by copper mining and now it is being mined for nickel.
It was in a bush setting, sort of, and reasonably clean, with plastic flowers in the shower block, but a bit run down looking, but we loved the character of the place. The friendly tattooed manager had a passionate hate of Barbie dolls, that she had collected for years, so she could humiliate them in all sorts of ways. See how many you can see in the photos and some of the compromising ways they are posed with Ken….
Many of the caravan parks strive to be tidy, manicured, havens of perfection but this one takes the prize for personality and yes can only describe it as quirky…
