Day 41


Another quiet day today.

I can’t even remember what we did this morning.  Not a great deal of anything that’s for sure.

Brett took the time to take a couple of photos of the dirt/mud on Gunter (that’s the name of our car, just in case you were wondering).


About lunch time we packed up our bathers and towels, grabbed some bread, and headed over to the Ivanhoe Caravan Park where my cousins were staying.  We took Michaela with us too. They are also travelling around Australia at the moment.  They started in Victoria, went up through the middle and are staying in Kununurra at the moment.

I don’t get to see them very often, so it was nice to be able to catch up with them.  The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool while Brett and Marcus cooked the sausages on the barbecue.  I think the water must have been fairly chilly, because they spent more time playing around the outside of the pool than being in it.

And what high quality playing was undertaken.  I just love how much kids love nature, and how much imagination can be used with a handful of sticks and some leaves. I present you the castle.



And then the park put a movie on, so all that nature play was stopped in an instant. Voila.
