Day 12 Kununurra to Dunham River Bush Camp 83 kms

Nice leisurely start today with a short ride to a bush camp.
Most of the riders went to The Wild Mango restaurant for breakfast and drinks. Kununurra did not know what hit them with our lot standing waiting for them to open. Collis and I took our time but we were still ahead of time. We should have stopped for breakfast as well as we were early for morning tea and had to wait around for them.

 The scenery was lovely and they had a nice tail wind once again today. I say the scenery was lovely when I really should have said stunning according to Annie. The temperature wasn't too hot but it was in the low 30's. Morning tea was donuts (one each- I was being the real mother this morning with policing this).
We arrived in the bush camp by lunchtime. Lovely little rest area with clean facilities and plenty of flat areas for camping.
Nice fireplaces built in so this made cooking much easier. We found an easy path down to the Dunham River so everyone went down for either a swim or a paddle.
Some of us were a bit wary of crocodiles but the water was pretty clear and if there was one then I'm sure we would have spotted it before it spotted us. Quite refreshing!! Dinner tonight was quick chicken and vegetable curry with rice followed by spicy apple damper. I made the main meal and Fliss with Ben's assistance made the dampers. Both courses were very successful although we had lots of rice leftover as Collis had cooked 2 1/2 kgs of uncooked rice. It was a nice dinner with everyone sitting around chatting, I did a trivia quiz and John read us one of his poems. All very pleasant. The group atmosphere has improved and the aim of working together as a team has been successful.
