What a wonderful nights sleep, no car horns, no electric lights, no TV, no noise. Time for another cup of tea and a quick chat with the custodians and bless their cotton socks they gave us the information needed to find a redundant campsite which they used to go to, by a river with a 'pool' to swim in and not a soul about.

Back on the corrugated road, hang a right onto the Kalumburu Road and look for landmarks, as they said, "if you can find it, you can use it". It would have been so much easier if they had said after anthill 9,999 turn left <g>, we are seeing so many termite mounds everywhere we look now. Another pit stop at the Drysdale River Station for coffee, this is a little oasis in the middle of nowhere and obviously a major stopping point to rest ones bum and allowed it to recover from the effects of vibrating chairs.
|A dogs life!!|
We found it after a few wrong turns and following instructions to ignore the 'No Camping' sign (one of the many we are seeing on our journey) perfect, shady, quiet except for birds, fresh water river slowly meandering by (King Edward River), dragonflies and the sun shining and no sign of humans.
|How beautiful is this?|
|Stupid Aussie tent made in China <g>|
Lamps on, bed made, dinner organized (a cold pre-cooked chicken) and another Vodka and Red Bull while the sun set then a couple of hours watching the stars, how wonderful the sky is without light pollution. This is a little bit of heaven.
