Arriving in Kununurra!

On Saturday the 23rd of January we left Perth ready for our adventure.

Here we are on the plane!

Goodbye Perth! You can't really see it in this photo but in the distance was Rottnest. Wonder when we'll be back there again? Not for awhile I think.

Three hours into the flight, nearly there, I look out my window to see my first glimpse of Lake Argyle. It is Australia's largest body of fresh water. And it is now in my backyard. No water restrictions up this part of Australia! It was nice to see that red dirt at last, felt a little bellyflip in my tummy like I was home again.

Landing in Kununurra I was suprised how green and lush it all looked from the air.

The first boab tree we saw, growing alongside the runway!

And at last we arrive at our new home! We made it!

It must be a great feeling to finally be there...well as soon as the unpacking is done that is! We'll be coming through Kununurra later in the year so I might even get to meet you!

I just looked up Kununurra, wow that is quite far north! Would be lovely and sunny the whole year round, I would think :)
