I was up at 7am to make breakfast for the guests, and pack them a small smoko to take with them.

Their comment in the guest book: Unique experience and wonderful, kind hosts, made us want to return soon. We will tell our friends!

So I guess John and I had done well, as solo hosts.

John took them up to their plane in the Troopy. I took Truck up to the house to see them off, as John would be staying up there to do his garden chores, while I had camp ones.

After they had gone, it was the usual post-guest routine: strip beds and wash sheets, towels, tablecloths, tea towels in the machine up at the house. If the safari camp business really got busy over the next couple of years, I thought to myself that they should really consider installing a washing machine somewhere at the camp. Would save a lot of to-ing and fro-ing.

I cleaned the tent and made it up again. Emptied the fridges and took the contents back to the house.

John spent much of the day in the vegie garden, catching up after his days of guiding.

While I was up at the house doing the washing, we had a cuddle with the dingo pups. Beau was quite relaxed about us handling them – and they didn’t seem to mind the attention. They were just beautiful. I would have loved to be able to have the little female one, permanently, but knew it would not be kind to the dog to try and keep it in a backyard, even a fair sized one.

Beau’s two dingo pups.

I treated myself to a lovely long shower.

Once again, we relaxed with happy hour in our clearing and discussed the experiences of the last few days. We were quite pleased with ourselves.

And with two of the grown ups……
