Wednesday 5th November 2014

We enjoyed our balcony breakfast, while watching an amourous skippy being rebuffed by his lady love.

Carnarvon Gorge our destination for the day.

Although the water levels are woefully low, we still managed to find several sets of stepping stones to navigate.

A mum & baby Kangaroo seemed unafraid of us & allowed us a great photo shoot opertunity.

Our 8 mile walk through the ozzie landscape in Carnarvon Gorge gave us many great photo stops.

The Moss gardens, an exquisite water fall where the filtered water meets the layer of shale in the rock face resulting in a series of slow drips.

along the edge , ferns and mosses grow in bright colourful greens.

Next stop " The Amphitheatre" a 30m ladder climb to the hidden tube of rock.

Smoothed out by years of water erosion, the amphitheatre has almost perfect acoustics..1 lucky crow took home Ians apple core to his grateful family as we sat enjoying the peacefulness.

Leaving Carnarvon Gorge , we now have added a pair of frightened Emu's to our wildlife count.

Dooleys Tavern, Motel, pole dancing club, Casino, whore house , car wash, laundry  & Restaurant is our stop over point tonight.

They do a passable steak & my beef & Guiness pie was delightful.

Another early night no doubt , a drive ahead to Airlie beach is on the cards for tomorrow.

Goodnight reader xxxx
