We don’t need to travel quite so far today, we do a quick detour into Daly waters, seems like a strange (in a quirky way) place, and might have been an interesting place to stay. Given it’s only 10:30 a bit too early for a beer.
OK, so that didn’t work out as planned. 2:15am, and the noise of the rain and the awning thrashing about makes us jump into action. Out, and throw the chairs under the van and put the awning away. The lighting is a lot closer than we’re comfortable with, but we get it done. At least the wind is nowhere near as bad as the night on the Plenty.
Day 46 – Sydney to Ellery Big Hole (via Alice) 28/10/18
Up at 5:15 (Sydney Time). I drive to Sydney, drop the car off at home. Thankfully our good neighbour Greg gave me lift to the airport, and as it is Sunday morning the traffic and the airport are not super busy. So I arrive with plenty of time.
We start the drive back to Alice, It’s not far before we hit Glen Helen, and to our surprise there is Optus coverage, and some guys see us on the phone and ask us who were with, they’ve got Telstra and no coverage.
