On the way back to our cabin we noticed the darkening sky was awash with flying bats off to feed for the night.
The next day we woke to find a fresh water crocodile basking in the sun near our cabin.
The view across the water to "sleeping Buddha elephant" rock.At certain angles it looks like a Buddha figure and an elephant at others.
We visited The Grotto again on our way to Wyndham.I stayed at the top with Mum and Audrey and Grant and Tim scampered down the worn stone steps to look about the bottom.
Mum(at right) and Audrey at the top standing in front of a Kapoke tree that is in flower.The flowers smell like bubble gum!!.
We continued on to Wyndham to show Mum and Audrey The Prison Tree.On the way out to The Prison Tree we stopped at some Aboriginal rock art that Grant knew about.
I had forgot how big The Prison Tree was.It's an ancient Boab that had a window cut into it.It was hollow inside and was used as a crude prison.There are several littered thru the Kimberley and some had bars in the windows as well.That's Mum and Audrey standing at the front.
Where branches have died and fallen off they create natures sky lights.Here is one taken with the flash on from inside the tree.
After Kununurra we drove to Hall's Creek and used that as a base to drive to other areas in the Kimberley.Near Hall's Creek there is this amazing natural quarts seam called "The China Wall", that has been exposed and looks like some ancient white wall amongst it's bush surrounds.
The next day we went of to the Bungle Bungle's.Once again I was in awe of this ancient cone shaped mountain range that we visited a few years back.Here is Mum and Audrey at the entrance. I took some lovely photos the last time we were there and a little video.So iIwont put as many up this time.Besdies we couoldn't take the older ladies on some of the walks we did last time as they are not as agile as us.
The striated beehive cone mountain formations are everywhere and I take a zillion shots of them again...they have a magnetic pull...I love this place!!
Mum and Audrey have never been here before and they are as fascinated as I was at seeing this amazing place.Here is Mum flanked by the ancient mountain range.
Part 2 to follow...a trip of treasured sights and memories.The Australian bush holds so much light,colour and ancient treasures.It's my dreaming and my muse.
