I forgot to mention in my previous blog that after we left Derby we came across all the cyclists and their support vehicles on their way to Kununarra. That proved a bit of a challenge getting past with oncoming traffic. Well, buggars for punishment that we are, we had to do the same thing this morning. Finally, after about an hour of ducking in and out of traffic we got through and were on our way again.
The scenery has been absolutely breathtaking, we agreed the three words most used  since we left home were "look at that". From the beautiful beaches along the coast and now the ruggedness of the Kimberley, Australia is such a beautiful place.
We set up camp at a rest area at Spring River which is  couple of hundred kms from Kununura. The camp is on the river. Had a fantastic night.There were about 20 vans free camping, including a couple from Scotland and a young guy from Germany. One of the guys set up a  camp fire and we sat around having a drink and exchanging stories about our travels. It was so peaceful, no bloody green frogs, no mossies, just quietness.
After a great evening we settled in for a good sleep with the intention to leave before the cyclists catch up in the morning.
