A very slow drive on the Gibb River road with the caravan, over heavy corrigated raods, through some river crossings and a bushfire that had been raging for over a month! We finally made it into El Questro, beautiful location with the campsite along the Penticost River. This was our swimming hole, which had a swing rope into the river, Bryce and I had lots of fun with that! Met a great couple here Matt and Renell travelling for 11months with their 3 children under 4yrs of age!! Ronnie joined me for morning yoga, nice to share my space and do some teaching again.
We visited Zebedee Hot Springs which is aways around 28 - 30degs. Not extactly the refreshing swimming you are generally looking for in this heat! It actually felt cold when you got out!! Never the less it was a beautiful spring of cascading waterfalls into various size rock pools.
The next day we headed to Moonshine Gorge, fun 4wd drive track to the car park. It had a huge pool at the beginning of the walk and a smaller one at the half way point (3.5km in). A challenging walk / climb in spots for Tom with his arm still in plaster, but well worth it as we had the water hole to ourselves. So we stripped off for a swim and stopped for early lunch beforewalking back in the heat of the day. this was made easier knowing that they was another water hole back at the beginning. Bryce and I snorkled and explored this huge waterhole while Mike and Tom had a rest in the Car.
