Beautiful emerald pools lined the river, hard to resist in the sizzling heat of the ozone-free scorching sun. We stopped and played in the river at a perfect picnic spot. Splashing in the ice cold water, and mucking about with the camera. Lunch: Brown bread, avocado, tomato, and S&V crisp butty, ( with a sprinkling of sandflies ). Unbelievably good. This is luxury trail food.
Finally packing up we realised the time. “Ah short day then ;)
After larking about in the water for too long we realised our plan of getting to Middy Hut today wasn’t going to happen.. So we set or sights on Captains Creek hut for the evening instead.
