I heard dingos howling at dusk and dawn. It's the first time I've heard them. It was pretty cool.

Josè was up at 5am while I kept on snoozing. I had a sleep in knowing that I had a short day ahead.

I crawled out of bed at 8am and had breakfast at the roadhouse.

This bush had pretty yellow flowers.

The road was gently undulating all day. The wind was a light cross wind.

Unknown river.

The rest area is beside the river. I went for a swim. It was warmer than the swim the other day.

This is a busy spot with more than 20 vans here by 3pm.

Barry came over for a chat with a cold beer.
