Gill and Peter like to travel. In 2011/12 they completed a trip around Australia. One of the things that they are aware of is the fact that to live your dream then you actually have to do something and that's what they did. In 2013 they decided to further explore outback Australia and crossed the Simpson Desert. Going forward they will continue to travel as they plan for the next few years.

Our last visit for the day was to the Cheynes Whaling Station. This was a working station until November 1978 and was not purpose built for tourism. This boat was the largest of the three that was used for whaling in the waters near Albany. They captured and killed up to 19 whales a day and the industry was worth 2.5 million dollars in 1978. Government policy closed the industry down. Peter enjoyed looking through the boat which has been well maintained in its original state.
