MONDAY 16 OCTOBER ONSLOW
It was a pleasant day. Hot, but nowhere near Karratha levels.
John tried unsuccessfully to fix the van jockey wheel, which has been going flat. The tube has perished. There was no replacement available at the local shops.
After lunch, we drove out to the Four Mile Creek – back in the direction of the Ashburton River mouth. It was interesting to go past the salt works plant, over the conveyor belt and be where we could see the new loading jetty. It is a big development.
The Four Mile was pleasant – a big creek inlet, with a few mangroves. It was a bit windy out there. John had a fish for a little while. He decided to stay on here an extra day and fish out there again tomorrow. I don’t think either of us was in a mood for packing up!
I went and extended our stay by a day.
For tea I made garlic bread rolls. John had yesterday’s fish. I had some coleslaw.
