Lots to See (long post)
We arrived in Kununurra late Sunday afternoon. So thought it best to go to the Information Bay for directions to the Caravan Park.
Not much help but we found our way and were pleased to set up, have a shower, something to eat and then a good nights sleep.
Monday did the washing. Then went shopping. While in town I looked at some beautiful jewellery and dreamt of buying pink diamonds but I could only afford this.
Even the tiniest diamond you could hardly see was over $4000. AH well we can dream.
Tuesday off to ELQ. First stop Emma Gorge. DH walked to stage 2 were he sat and waited.
I wanted to see the fall at the end of the walk.
Which is stage 11. It was nice to hear the water trickle through the rocks as I walked and climbed over rocks.
Stage 10. The Pool.
Not far now. Up,over through some more rocks and then.
So worth the climb. Now to do it all again back to DH and then the car park.
We drove on to ELQ and decided to go on a helicopter ride along the rivers and homestead. I had had enough walking for the day. Only took this photo
DH chatting to the pilot. It was too windy so put camera away and hung on. It was the most fabulous ride. Afterwards we had lunch,
here. Very nice.
Today it was off to Lake Argyle. Click here to learn more about this amazing project. I will download some photo but it is IMPOSSIBLE to show the you how HUGE this lake is.
Part of the Dam Wall.
Back of the boat.
There is just water as far as you can see.
There is a lot of wild life living on the islands in the lake.
Click on the photo to see the Jabiru sitting on the nest.
The orange boat is the one we went on.
Can you see the car driving along the Dam Wall ???
Before filling the Lake the old homestead was moved and is now a museum.
The bower birds have made a home in the hedge.
It is late now and time for bed.
