Pretty Port

I had the opportunity to visit Port Hedland briefly, when the Lead Contracts Engineer on the MPDJV took me up for a site visit, whilst working in the Contracts Administration sector.

Port Hedland is about a 2 hour flight from Perth.

Despite not being the sort of person who really craps on about landscapes, and despite the fact that Port Hedland is so flat and I was imagining nothing but a few spinifex and some dust, I surprised myself at how the landscape grabbed me, especially when the weather was moving across it.

Not for the Faint Heated

Do beware that if you're not into the heat, you may have a hard time of it, though having said that, it is a different kind of heat than what you get in Perth.
