I was fed eggs and toast by the incredibly generous Logan and Larissa at Ellenbrae before saying goodbye and hitting the road. I’m completely sick of the corrugations now. The battle against the rough road is getting harder each day, and the sun’s heat is increasing in its brutality. Not much further to go now, though. I pulled into Jack’s Waterhole and followed a track to the edge of Durack River. I will thrilled to see a decent amount of water in it. I had a quick wash in the water but was too scared of Saltwater Crocodiles to go for a proper swim. I’m not sure if there are crocs here but I know that the Durack feeds into the Pentecost and the Pentecost definitely has them. I have resolved to return to the Kimberley one day and spend at least one complete year out here to see the cycle of the seasons. In particular, I want to witness the wet.
