We weren't so happy when Pete managed to drive the van too close to a camping ground star-picket....Richard and Annie, you know how you said we should expect damage to the vehicle and van? Well ummmm...... so sorry!
... we have a functional & vaguely comestic result that should see us through until it can be repaired properly upon return. I may have got over it myself in that time! But I must stress to Annie & Richard that several times each day I find myself grateful and full of gratitude for the things we are experiencing thanks to their generousity.
I was helped of course by a mystery bushman ....
Ant hill or termite mound?
"Goanna" at Bitter Springs
Some camp ground scenes....
We swam in the Roper River which flows to the Gulf of Carpenteria (after checking the crocodile signs!)

This is tonight's campfire (a couple of book readers in the Jayco beds)
We hope you enjoyed our Mataranka updates. Off to Katherine area tomorrow. New posts entirely dependent on signal!!!
