Camping at Bloomfield

Am camped at Bloomfield Camping which is $25 for one powered site with access to a fully equipped kitchen complete with coffee and sugar. The shower and facilities are excellent and the grounds are picturesque and beautifully maintained. The only negative is the heat. There is absolutely no breeze at all. I had bought a tiny 12v fan yesterday at Cooktown and I ran it when it got unbearable worrying that it would drain the battery. Wishing I had bought a full electricity run fan as well.

The heat is too much forme. .I went driving the next day and the Bloomfield General store had a stand up fan for $30. I bought it and was able to sleep better with the fan on all night. The Store had good food and almost everything one could desire including a friendly Vietnamese couple working there. I went on to Wuja Wuja . The road winds down beside the river and its a beautiful drive, very steep in places and eventually I stalled the van half way up a hill and had to do a standing start. I was relieved to see the next store and cafe. I parked here and enjoyed a nice toasted sandwich.

I drove on to Wuja Wuja, but the next hill was too much for me. I had to admit I turned the van around here and drove back…all down hill and not a single problem, I regretted not going all the way to the Wuja Wuja Falls . The location beside the river surrounded by mountains is beautiful…and the drive was amazing.

Rather than go back to the camping ground, I went to find the beach.. Weary Bay it is called, and I spent the whole day sitting here watching the water. I did not see any crocodiles but the week before one had taken a dog paddling n the water. Weary Bay Beach is a bush beach, without any bitumen car parks and concrete pathways. It’s a place where you can look from one end to the other and on most days, not see another soul. Sunrise and sunset are perfect times for panoramic photos, as the rainforest hills in the backdrop are lit by the colorful rays from the rising or setting sun.
