Purse drama praise
While travelling through the Pilbara, we unfortunately misplaced my wife’s purse.
This wasn’t discovered until we arrived at Paraburdoo after staying at Tom Price for a couple of days.
We all know how stressful it is for a lady to lose her purse.
We turned our vehicle inside out with no success and tried to retrace our transactions at Tom Price and decided the only place it could be was in the Tom Price Caravan Park rubbish.
After we phoned the park the very concerned staff kindly didn’t do a tip run and we drove back to Tom Price to go through the rubbish with no luck.
After contacting all the helpful businesses we visited in town, we went to Westpac to notify them and get some cash to survive on.
Our cards, of course, were all linked and had to be blocked.
We then proceeded to Exmouth with a pretty distressed wife.
After much more worrying we decided the only place we hadn’t contacted was Karijini Eco Resort, we briefly visited.
Bingo! It was there. But we were in Exmouth.
Now it comes to thanking the wonderful people in the Pilbara.
Megan at the Eco Resort for securing the purse.
Tom Price Tourist Centre staff, who advised us that a tour operator comes from Karijini to Tom Price once a week.
Pete West, “The Flying Sandgroper”, who picked up the purse from the Eco Resort and delivered it to Westpac Tom Price, and refused payment (West Oz Active Adventure Tours).
Karen Gmeiner, Westpac Tom Price, for keeping us informed and dispatching the purse to Perth for redelivery to Exmouth.
Vicki and staff, Westpac Exmouth, for their help in unblocking the cards and notifying us when said purse arrived.
No wonder we bank with Westpac!
Katinka Napier reunited with her purse.
