Heading South. Darwin to Tennant Creek

Another quick update.
After a relatively easy start to the day we left Darwin and headed down the highway. 1st stop Edith Falls for a swim and lunch.

We had thought we might overnight here, but given the distances we need to cover to get to Alice Springs we opted to press on to Bitter Springs. This would allow us the indulge ourselves in the springs and mean we could then press on to Tennant Creek the following day.

So another night camped near the springs allowed for both a dusk and an early morning swim. Morning was perfection. Only a couple of other people, mist rising from the warm waters and lots of birds. Most reluctant to leave....

On the highway we encounter heaps of bikes heading north. Its the Black Dog Rally. We pull off the highway to visit Daly Waters and find about 50 bikes pulled up outside the pub.

Lunch in Elliot on the roadside before pushing on to Tennant Creek. We are treating ourselves to a night in a motel/hotel. Tomorrow on to Alice.....
