>> DAY 61..350 odd kms to Broome via Derby to finish off the savannah way part of our trip. Decided to stop at the free Lennard river camp as recommended by imitji roadhouse. Set high on hill, so away from the salties which apparently inhabit the river, would make a good camp, altho could get a bit of traffic noise.
>> On to Derby and the famous prison tree. Gave interesting insight into history of abuse of the aborigines by the white man.
>> Stopped at the information centre for the key to the museum, trusty souls. Just beat a school group, phew. Danny and his map got swept up in a willy willy. He was saved but his map did about 20 revolutions before being deposited across the road.
>> Checked out the wharf and then lunch at the pub.
>> Now to Broome and to the rather cramped Palm Grove caravan Resort. Had a spot overlooking road which proved interesting at closing time at Divers Tavern. Thought we had to clean up after road kill.
>> Boys enjoyed proximity to pub tho, often ducking back there late at night.
>> Luckily 3rd and last day for the month to watch Staircase to the Moon. Bussed and walked, finally got good viewing spot but told the optical illusion of moon and steps not as good as previous night. Had something to do with moisture in the air. Still looked pretty amazing.
>>
>> DAY 62. Took in sights of Broome. Gautheame point with the dinosaur prints and the nesting Osprey.
>>
>> Another wharf, this one very beautiful because of the aqua water. Like to see someone catch a fish from the wharf with such a huge distance to water! Had great meal at wharf restaurant.
>>
>>
>> Sadly, end of season for Swans and Tigers!
>>
>> DAY 63. Organized camel ride but stupidly couldnt find the camels!
>> Walked miles in wrong direction after getting up early and all.
>> Only saving grace was coming home to a packed up camper trailer.
>> The next time we pack it up we'll be on own again with no extra helpers. :(
>> Finally, said goodbye to Alison, Danny and Jo-Anne. Think they're going home for a rest! Great touring with them!
>> Then said hello to Jim and Gloria. They arrived on the plane the others were leaving on. And off to a real resort and a week of relaxing with family.
