We have made it to Kununurra. We're nearly at the end of our WA experience as the NT border is only 40kms from here. But it's still a while off yet as we plan to be here for 2 months or so. Chris will be involved in putting up a kithome.
We have only been here a week, but we feel so comfortable we feel like we've been here for months. Everyone has been so welcomming and friendly and we've been invited along to all sorts of events. The girls have made some lovely new friends and I've joined the womens bible study and I take Lucy to a music program each week. We even joined the local library! I've also been invited to speak at a children's ministry day. It's a great town and we look forward to our time here. We're still having a Summer type of Winter with 38 degrees predicted this week!! We just can't believe that this is the middle of Winter!

The girls have a craft lesson with Michelle. Michelle and her husband are from Wollongong and travelling like us, helping out at different churches along the way. Her husband Bob did some work with Chris. She is teaching the girls to make gorgeous little paper flowers.

The Bungle Bungles is a place I'd always seen on the travels shows and thought I'd love to see. It was very special to be there. They really did blow us away, it's hard to come up with words to describe it. The road in was rough and took a while but it was worth it! We camped for 3 nights and did all the walks. The nights were really something too. The sky was so dark and black and the stars were brilliant. Chris and I would sit out and watch the shooting stars. The Kimberley is just getting better and better. Such a stunning part of Australia.

We thought we wouldn't be able to experience the Gibb River Rd as we weren't keen to shake the van to bits! Thankfully we found somewhere to leave the van and off we went with our tents. The road was so much better than we expected and the gorges blew us away!!!! We had an exhausting but fantastic 6 days exploring 'The Kimberley'. We went as far as Barnett River and plan to do the other half from Kununurra. Sorry, but there are quite a lot of photos. There were lots of highlights! Thanks God for your awesome creation!
This is the start of the walk into Manning gorge. They have these esky's for you to put your gear in while you wade across the river. We didn't tell the girls 'til after, but there are crocs in this river. Chris and I went down with a torch at night and could see their red eyes shining. The ranger told us that they're well fed and not interested in us! Well that's nice to know!!
