Lots of water, lots of fish, lots of crocs.
Well, we survived the Gibb River Road. Unfortunately our number plate didn’t and we’ve left it lying somewhere between El Questro and Ellenbrae. Some sections of the road were really corrugated and rough but generally the road was in pretty good condition and we managed an average speed of about 70 kms an hour. We particularly loved Manning Gorge and Bell Gorge where we swam both above and below the falls. Windjana Gorge and Tunnel Gorge where very exciting although Molly was nervous about what she couldn’t see below the water as we waded through the dark and all of us were a bit wary as we walked only metres from huge fresh water crocodiles at Windjana.
At the moment we are in Broome and loving the cooler weather (30 degrees rather than 38!) and really enjoying Cable Beach where Molly and Lloyd are becoming experts at Boogie boarding and body surfing and where Lucy has learnt to put her head under water. From here we plan to go north to Cape Levique and Middle Lagoon. Lloyd has not caught his first fish yet but is a master at casting. We are hoping that he will have some success up
Secret waterhole in Kununurra that only the locals know about.
at these places which are meant to be a fisherman’s paradise although I’m not so sure about Cape Levique as the brochure says that you will hook plenty of fish but not land so many as the sharks get them before you can bring them to shore. Perhaps we won’t be swimming too far out.
We hope Phil enjoyed his 40th and that dad is enjoying his retirement. We’re sad not to be there for Pat’s birthday as well and we won’t go into how old she’ll be!!!! But we know that David will have cooked her breakfast in bed and treated her in the fashion to which she has become accustomed since she retired.
Anyway love and miss you all from Ange, Geoff, Lloyd, Molly and Lucy.
