Bindoon to Perth
It was much cooler today. After leaving Windmill Farm we rode the short distance into Bindoon township. The bakery was open so we stopped for an early morning tea. It was quite a large and very busy bakery for a small town. It appeared to have quite a few travellers and motorcyclists dropping in on their way through the town.
The road to Perth was a little hilly to start with and then flattened out. There were a couple of sections of roadworks and we were given an escort with flashing yellow lights through one of them. They told us it was to stop any traffic trying to overtake us on the narrow sidetrack. This is the second escort we have had through roadworks in WA and it has been very much appreciated particularly when there is a semi trailer behind us. It is a pity other states do not do this for cyclists.
We reached the turnoff to Muchea and stopped for morning tea number two. From here there was a good paved shoulder on the road, which continued for most of the way into Midlands. We arrived at our accommodation in Ascot shortly after 3pm. We have made it to the next capital city on our route!

Our first kangaroo paw. The wild ones seem bigger than the ones we have seen in gardens.
