Well it seems like we will be getting reception nightly now as we have internet reception. We think this is due to the face that Roxy Downs is not far away so communication is important.
We woke this morning to a lovely sunrise just outside the tent ...
Just out of Glendambo we saw our first live Kangaroo since coming down from Normanton ... that is over 2000 km ago! Yesterday we noticed as we got closer to Glendambo we started see dead kangaroos and lizards on the road - previously we had seen NO dead animals since being in NT and South Australia! So the bulk of the ride today was into this cross headwind, although predominantly a cross wind it battered and shook us around and pushed us out into the road so we had to constantly struggle to keep the bike aligned to the white line!
Traffic was heavier than normal but as we get closer to civilisation the more traffic we will encounter.
We had a cuppa in a hole!
I looked forward to getting to Lake Hart - I stayed here before at the rest area but now it is really popular so we won't be camping there as there is no privacy to go to the toilet. Our first glimpse of Lake Hart ...
So after filling up with water at Lake Hart we continued on down the road and got about 5km and came to a drive and took that and we decided to opt for shade rather than privacy today so we are in front of some trees that gives us shade for the rest of the day ... although the flies are very thick here!
