Boom Bangabang! Rest Day Alice Springs
Last night we heard a fortune in fireworks go up in smoke - and that was just at our caravan park!
All the main centres in the NT celebrated with fireworks - big, expensive, professional ones lit the sky until midnight. Needless to say, we, and the local bird life, had little sleep.
We left the camp early and cycled 5kms to the city centre, checking in at the "i" centre and then the motel.
Our next port of call was the Bicycle Centre, Alice Springs, where Ben, the mechanic, quickly fixed the problem with Del's gears and we were back in business by lunch time. Good service and much appreciated.
Stocked up on a few stores at Coles and had a relaxing evening and early bed after last night's celebrations.
