Doon Doon to Warmun, WA
93.5 km (58.0 mi)

Our early departure ended up being the usual normal sun-is-halfway-up-and-we-should-have-gotten-our-butts-moving-an-hour-ago departure. It was a nice ride though the rolling hills of the Kimberlys. Grubby pointed out how flat the road was for how many hills are in the area. At about 70k we stopped at the Ord River crossing and ate lunch under the bridge. We kept moving though the hottest part of the day thinking that a cold beer would be good. We reached the Turkey Creek roadhouse around 2pm...only to discover it is a dry area and no beer...so we bought root beer instead. Ended up staying at the roadhouse for the night. Grubby bought some bread that was getting close to its sell-by date. He said he picked it over the loaf that was a month past its date. I thought a newspaper sounded good so I bought one. After reading it for awhile it seemed a little dated. Turns out the overpriced newspaper (double the cover price) was aweek old! What a gip! Reamed!
