Update on Matilda….

7am I was on the phone to mechanics.

Number one mechanic, “sorry we have a waiting list of 10 days…”

Number two mechanic “Sorry we have a waiting list of two weeks…”

Number three mechanic, “Sorry we can not take you till September 21…”

Number four mechanic “Sorry we no longer do mechanical work…”

Oh dear it was looking as though we would be getting to know Katherine very well….

Then break through, Dave of H & R motors took pity on us and said “Bring her in I will look and if it is a small job I may be able to fix it”

Eventually Dave was able to look inside her and diagnosed a dirty fuel filter and the timing needed altering. He worked his magic on her and $150 later we were purring along. One more night in Katherine and tomorrow we will be heading south through the red heart of Australia, along the Stuart Highway, in the footsteps of many famous explorers.

Our first stop will be back to Daly Waters Pub, that crazy iconic place that we enjoyed so much last stop on the way north. Do not know what sort of internet reception there will be along the track. So I will be back to report our travels when I can. I still have Darwin and Litchfield National Park to tell you about. But now after a stressful day it is time for a glass of wine.

I will just add this photo of a couple of flowers we saw as we explored the National Parks.
