Better late than never, I made it to Derby after cancelling my arrival yesterday. I fwas thrilled to fly over some incredible country to arrive in Derby this afternoon.
I left Newman after a comfortable stopover and started my four hour flight. First I saw the amount of ground water around Newman and then, as I ascended, I have a fantastic view across the Kimberly region. Words fail me, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Arriving in Derby was wonderful. I was greeted by Sara Hennessy who only a day earlier had cancelled all my arrangements, as I was unable to reach Derby per my original schedule. Sara had arranged lots of opportunities for me in Derby through her position as Assistance Community Development Officer with the Shire of Derby. She picked up many pieces and brought together local medical students who I am speaking to tonight. My thanks to her!
In Derby, I’ve been staying at the Boab Inn. Any guesses where it gets its name from?
Finally, tonight the sky erupted in an amazing electrical storm. Check out the sky in these photos and join me in wishing these clouds away for clear skies tomorrow morning.
