On the Road to Tom Price 21st and 22nd June, 2012

We took two nights to reach Tom Price, both nights being spent in really good roadside camps. The second night was at Beasley River roadside stop which we reached by lunch time. We were the first to arrive and so had the pick of the camp and settled in for an afternoon of sewing and reading.

Halfway through the afternoon Ian decided on a campfire which was made possible by some kind person leaving some firewood behind.  We also had tiger prawns brought from Exmouth and to go with them Ian decided to make a very tasty damper and was able to make use of our new firestand which hasn’t had any use on this trip as there are no fires allowed in the National Parks. 

As you can see from the pictures we were able to enjoy a very happy evening with our friends the two doves who arrived during the afternoon and decided to settle in and enjoy the sunshine. There were also a large number of Major Mitchell Cockatoos who are taking on the dusty appearance of the red dirt here. We have well and truly traded the sand from Exmouth for the red dirt now.
