A very peachy journey
Been on the go on a Bill Peach air tour of distinction. Picked up the tour in Darwin, next stop flying in the comfy, darling Dash 8 to Kununurra and then we took off for a trip up the mighty Ord River. What a magnificent journey - freshwater crocs everywhere, hanging out on rocks enjoying the sun, Ospreys flying high above us . . .lunch in a secret spot on the bank with a little waterfall twinkling behind us. Capt Ken is moving us through the sky and doing figure 8's so we all get the view the magical Kimberley landscape - Bungle Bungles, Argyle dam, vast valleys, red rust colour of iron shining through . . .it's robust country. We flew over the edge of the coast today and spied Cockatoo island, a host of small islands and many dark shapes in the pristine sea below. Now in Broome at Cable beach resort - some days, are the best days of our lives - I'm having one today.
