Road Tripping to Peaceful Bay with the Jayco Starcraft

Lori, Mikah and I recently headed down to Peaceful Bay for a little getaway, we also took Mikah's mate Lachelle and travelled with our mates Cath, Dave and Lucy. Unusually for me, I didn't get the laptop out once while we were away, so all the photos were edited once we got home. We were travelling in Lori's Holden Trailblazer with our trusty old Jayco Starcraft in tow.

There are several way to get to Peaceful Bay and of those, the routes through Manjimup and Williams are about the same travel time. We decided to head down through Williams and stop at the Williams Woolshed to grab a coffee with another stop at Mount Barker to grab a bit to eat, hit the local IGA for some last minute supplies and stretch the legs. We have previously stopped at the Woolshed for lunch and been quite impressed.

The Williams Woolshed is also home to the 1905 Roasting Company and has a few other stores as well when you can pick up a new pair of Emu ugg boots or a Didgeridoonas oilskin cooler bag amongst other things. We had only brought ground coffee on this trip, and I needed some whole beans to grind to make Turskish coffee's in the mornings. I find this to be one of the better ways to get a decent coffee when we're on the road so it's my preferred breakfast drink when we're in the van or camping, but requires a finer grind of coffee than what Lori had brought along to use in her Moka pot. I chose the 1905 Columbian beans which went down a treat in Peaceful Bay.

The random buildings shown below are some we saw while walking the main street in Mount Barker.
