On Friday we said goodbye to Team Percy in Cooktown while they wait for new clutch parts to arrive. We hope to see them in a few days as we slowly work our way to the top.
Today's drive took us North West through Lakefield National Park. The roads were surprisingly good with only the odd corrugated section to test the suspension. Both cars were still running highway tyre pressures. The scenery has changed significantly from the endless paddocks of sugar cane to large areas of Termite mounts. As the colour of the ground changed so did the termite mound colour. Some were even built on the road and were like small brown witches hats along the road edge.
We stopped briefly at Old Laura Homestead in between rain showers for morning tea. A very deep well had the kids amazed.

During the morning pack up Amanda picked up the chair bags to find this little guy hiding in it. An appropriate scream was heard followed by laughter from the rest of us. It wasn't a killer butterfly (a whole different story) but this centipede looked fierce.
