Waiting, waiting, waiting!
Still in derby, thinking about getting a job, starting to feel like a local. 4th night here, and now it looks like it might be another and then the weekend, nothing much will happen then and that will make it a week.
Derby is a nice town, the motel is modern and comfortable, the managers are very understanding and sympathetic and we have found a lot of nice cafés/restaurants. But you can wear out your welcome, who wants to have a heap of junk sitting in their car park. Tomorrow night they are expecting a bus load and there may not be enough room for us.
Derby has a population of 5000, it has a large, long wharf because of the huge tides which is u-shaped so when ships are loaded the trucks drive onto it from one side and off the other. It also has a long enclosed conveyor belt.
Bougainvillea, frangipani and boab trees abound and we saw a grandfather boab with bougainvillea growing up through it which looked like it was flowering, see photo of the day.
Catch ya later!
From the the stationary wanderers.
