Faraway Bay Vol II
I'd go back just for the breakfasts - home made muesli to die for.
All thanks to Dave, our gorgeous chef. Talented, companiable and hated wearing shoes.
Pina Colada territory
Decor by nature
One of the eight guest cabins.
The slice of paradise that is Faraway Bay. You'll never want to leave ...
View of the beach from the main deck of the resort. Crocs about, don't be tempted to wade in.
Getting cranked up for a day on the water, visiting remote water-holes, deserted beaches ...
Kevin's a hands-on kinda manager
Suzie's found the only armchair on the boat.
The camp at Faraway Bay doesn't leave much of a visual footprint from the water.
With such an idyllic setting, we just had to turn up today, and the landscape did the rest.
No two blocks of sandstone up here are the same colour
Someone's at home guarding the chicks.
The eagles up here know all about choosing prime real estate. Have a go at his front verandah.
Taking its place in history.
I kept expecting Gillian, the Skipper, Professor and Maryanne to appear around the next tussock.
Over a little soda-pop, the girls are plotting how to never leave the Kimberley.
Don nicely colour-coordinated with the dramatic cliffs.
Rossy, not so much.
When the bottle runs out .....
That's the wife up the top of the mast; his highness is down on the deck "supervising".
This one spans two massive chunks of Australia and is called Guillotine Rock. Pretty freaky nosing the boat right underneath it.
Drifting into our lunch spot. Kevin took us to the most incredibly beautiful water-hole for a swim.
Suzie & Rossy showing a few nerves enroute to a severe dunking
There goes the hair-do
Had enough yet ??
None of us escaped the torture.
Two crew from the nearby Orion wait patiently for their cruise guests to return from a bush walk, champagne glasses lined up ready.
Our cheeky Faraway Bay guide , very happy with himself for dunking all his passengers today
We loved that they'd hung the Orion flag - like they'd discovered Australia or something.
Steve Duroy is having a terrible time.
We've called this one the Wyndham Wave. A mini Morning Glory pays us a visit one afternoon
We would have rushed to the airport and jumped into our gliders if we had any.
Must be important, Don's even put his cup of tea down.
Thar she blows.
Gotta love the croc tracks into the bay. There's a resident Faraway Bay croc that cruises around, mostly unseen.
Perhaps my favourite memory.
Sunset drinks up on the ridge behind the camp
.... or not ...
See, a journalist NEVER stops working - always on the phone
My deadline is WHEN ????? I'm putting my husband on ...
Get knicked, she's on holidays.
Dave the chef teaches us how to make gnocchi.
All the water here at Faraway Bay is spring water. This outside shower is hands-down the best shower I've ever had.
They breed 'em tough in the top end. He asked us to be on croc patrol - oh my God, the pressure!
So remote, so private. This little attol beach is where all the shells of the world have come to retire. Might join them.
