Down some metal steps and down to the river. There is a large rock that is a landing before stepping into the river, sand is on the river bed. Not too far from the steps there are smooth rocks below the surface. The water is clear, you can see the bottom even though you cannot determine the depth.
We moved the kids forward a long way in the past few days. We departed Alice Springs four days ago. We pushed hard and we are now in Townsville. The heavy road is catching up with us and my Adventure Goggles are making me see the bad things.
Today we stopped at Uluru, Australia's very own big rock. It was a magnificent sight, at first popping out above the horizon over the trees and then towering high above us. It was unexpected after our long journey to get here.
