Then it was back to the car to start heading to Exmouth or as far as we could make it. We didn't get far before we decided to stop in at the Old Roebourne Prison, the building looked nice so we thought it would be worth a look. There was some interesting old things inside and old photos, but it was not very big so we were back on the road again soon after
The next stop was Karatha for some food shopping and some lunch. Then we really set about trying to cover some kilometers. We ended us stopping around 4:30 at a free camp that looked nice, it had plenty of room and some cow to make it interesting. We picked a spot near the river (although it didn't have any water in it) and set up camp while the kids made friends with a family that arrived shortly after us.
Harry thinks the best thing about free camps is that you get to have bon fires. We couldn't disappoint him so tonight's dessert was marshmallows and damper on the bonfire with the kids new friends.
Emily's main complaint about free camps is that they don't have showers, so we decided that it was time we tried out the shower in the van. Emily was the first to try it and thought it was great. We all agreed it was one of the best showers we have had.
