This sign was 14kms from the town so I still had a little way to go.

The Gascoyne River.

I'm not sure why this banana was behind a fence?

I couldn't see a banana shop. I was hoping for a banana smoothie and pancakes. 

I checked into the campground and then rode out to the One Mile Jetty. 

Unfortunately it's only a couple hundred metres now and it's closed.

Lednar De NallohTo expensive to repair an old, rotting jetty then a cyclone usually finishes them off.

A pleasant small bay on the edge of town.

I was excited to have some delicious green chicken curry for dinner. It tasted way better than a roadhouse burger.

A few days ago someone had warned me to be careful of thieves here. I never saw anything suspicious. 

I was too tired to have a beer or even write this blog. I'm sorry you'll have to wait a couple days before I can get reception to publish it.
