Well it was our last night to see the Staircase to the Moon but unfortuntately the rain came down, by 5pm it was grey and gloomy and very threatening, by 6.20 it had started coming down and the sky was very black, we still headed off to the Mangrove hotel just in case. It was such a shame as the hotel had put lots of chairs and the umbrellas up and had a BBQ set up, running throught the rain to get under the covers we stood with other hopefuls to catch a glimpse, at 2 mins to 7pm a brave moon beamed and through clouds for a momentary glimpse gave some steps but it was quickly gone as the clouds overtook the shine. oh well.
Heading to Derby tomorrow and then moving through to Kununarra.
love from the great outdoors
