... way over. Without a shoulder to ride on, it can be a challenge. I turned 40 the day before our last ride before our rest day in Katherine. While I didn't expect much, the two Frenchman bought champagne and wine for me and few others that night. They also got he group to sing happy birthday. It really made my day special. It was a fun night but I had way too much to drink. I think that was their plan!!! :) They let me draft on them during our ride the next day as I ...

It was very fortunate that there was plenty to do as mentioned in the last post. We also discovered the local pool which was great and the library plus a few nice drives out and about along the Ord River region. The main issue was the heat which has been at 38 most days ...

... swim so Brianna and I met them there after our walk and had a lovely cool off. Feeling cool and refreshed we headed back to our camp for lunch. We decided it was too hot to do another further exploring of the gorge on foot - to reach some of the other parts of Katherine Gorge takes a lot of walking so we will just be satisfied with seeing the first two parts of the gorge. After lunch we decided the best place to be was the swimming pool so we ...
