Last week we went camping – we try to go camping at least once a year. This time though we headed up the Gibb River Road which is synonymous with dust, corrugated roads and did I mention dust!
This is the Pentecost River – did you see the movie "Australia"?
This was the river they drove across.
Many of the campers had tidy little set ups – not us!
