Day 87 - Tuesday 31 July 2012

Kununurra

Today was washing day - Di spent the morning doing several loads of washing while David tried to catch up on the blog which is now several days behind as we had no Next G coverage at the Bungle Bungles. Because of the number of photos to be uploaded it becomes very time consuming.

After lunch we went out to the Zebra Rock Gallery where they maunfacture ornaments, decorative items and jewellery. Zebra rock is a fine grained siliceous argillite with rythemic patterns of red bands or spots contrasting sharply with a lighter background. It is not known how the patterns were formed but the red bands or spots are coloured ferric oxide. The rock is about 600 million years old and the only known deposits are in the east Kimberley region. You guessed it - Di just had to have some.

The Zebra Rock Gallery is located on a Mango farm located on the shores of Lake Kununurra, and has extensive gardens running down to the water from the Gallery. They have a fish feeding (not catching) jetty where Catfish and Sooty Grunters (black bream) wait to be fed bread.
