"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it." Greg Anderson
Sunday Drives (which could occur any day of the week) with my dad almost always involved many 'short cuts' (which weren't) on a few 'back roads' (which definitely were) to a destination which was usually interesting (obscure) and 'something I read about somewhere, thought we might take a look.' There was often singing (badly) and travel games, which were usually word games, guessing games or non-descript games whose rules seemed to be determined by the driver (which meant whoever was driving had a distinct advantage).
Dad visited us recently so it was fitting we have a dad-style outing to the Pinnacles.
Because every outing requires a coffee stop, we went via the Bindoon Bakery (one of two Very Amazing Bakeries in WA's Wheatbelt) then weaved our way across to the Pinnacles via some very, very back roads. The best thing about back roads is the unexpected delights...
Dad got to tick off The Pinnacles from his List Of Things I'd Like To One Day See, I got a coffee, my son took some cool photos and my husband - as the driver - won all the travel games we played.
Everyone kicked a goal.
