Day 91 - Saturday 4 August 2012

Kununurra to Lake Argyle

We packed up and were on our way by 9:30 am for our very short rip of only 70 kms to the Lake Argyle Caravan Park, where we arrived at about 10:00 am and were allocated a grassy site at the top end of the park. Down near the Infinity Pool we noticed a couple of Boab Trees with leaves – in the wild all the Boab trees are without leaves at this time of year. Boab Trees in leaf indicate nearby water, and in the case of the caravan park they are watered every day.

There is no Next G telephone signal at Lake Argyle, so no mobile phone or Internet access, and not much of a TV signal, so it was out with the satellite dish again. As we have moved north the angle of the dish or its Azimuth has increased from about 40 degrees to near 60 degrees. The Optus C1 satellite used for the Vast free to air television system is in stationary orbit over New Guinea.

At 4:30 pm we went to Sundowners’ on the Deck at the Resort Motel. We met some fellow travellers – Andre and Rosita from Queensland who have been travelling for about 12 months with another 12 months to go, and Ian and Kerry from Shepparton in Victoria who are on holiday and are yet to retire. Andre and Kerry were long time sailors who have circumnavigated the globe a couple of times, as well as circumnavigating Australia in a steel Boden 38.
