Day 148 – 10/10/2019 on a Midlife Adventure.
Today I decided to back track and check out a town I missed on the way to Broome, WA as I had the van on the back so it was off to Derby, WA I went.
Town is pretty basic it has some shops but overall a pretty quiet place.
Then off to the Port area.
Handy there was a fish and chip shop and with my ongoing love of Garlic Prawns I was well looked after.
The mangrove section to the right of the port looks like a great place for a swim… to anyone with a death wish.
The flats on the way into town provide an amazing oasis look that you are sure looks like water but just keeps going further and further out.
Just out of town is a Prison Tree, similar to the one I saw in Wyndham, WA.
The road in to the Prison tree includes a windmill and water trough
The journey was back through Channel country where I spotted a fresh water croc which isn’t easy at speed but just one of those things I do for my readers.
A whirlly whirlly was whipping up some dust and actually crossed just as a van went through, i’m sure it was fun for them.
Back in town I saw the camels heading down for the sunset rides.
So with almost 400km done in a day I cranked the aircon on in the van and relaxed the late afternoon away on this Midlife Adventure.
