Oz Trip - Day 109 to 110

Day 109 to 110 – 18/8/2012 to 19/8/2012 – Return to Broome and Derby

Basically just returning to Broome for a night before heading back to Derby the following day.  While in Broome again I managed to get a quick snap of the outside of the outdoor cinema.

On the way back to Derby we had to pull off the side of the road to let some big mining trucks past. I wish we had just been a few more kilometres north of where we were as there was a one lane bridge with guard rails. It would have been pretty cool to see the trucks go over that to see how much overhang over the bridge there was and the clearance on the guard rails. I don't think there would have been much.

We found out that the parts for the camper had turned up a couple of days early so we organised with the place doing the repairs to drop it off in two days time. As much as we wanted it fixed and to be on the road again, we had an early tour booked for the following day and we also had to find alternative accommodation for a couple of nights and unpack what we needed from the camper. Not something that we could do before our early start in the morning.

That evening we also met our back camp neighbours, Al and Ericia. We shared a few drinks, a number of stories and quite a few laughs. It was about 10:30pm when we called it a night and then still had to the washing up and packing etc for the early start in the morning!
