Getting down at the Rodeo amongst the Boab Trees in Derby
Matt was flat out working for the three days that we were there as a roadie for a wedding gig and an indig band gig at the rodeo. He took the kids along him to the rodeo for one of the days to really absorb the atmosphere. Three words: "they loved it".
Of course we also had barra fish and chips on the jetty at sunset...does anyone come to Derby, and not do it?
We loved the heat and dustiness of Derby. It is a much redder town than Broome (and hotter). Boabs serve a real purpose of shade and they are magnificent against the sky. This is the first town we have gotten to however, that we have been told, you mustn't swim in the water. Crocs. Eeep!
It was a quick trip as we had to get back to Broome for our 2 week stint for Matt working as the OIC (Officer In Charge no less!!) for the Pre Poll Voting Centre for the Federal Election....but that is another story!
