Port Smith or is it Broome?

Friday 26th September. We said our goodbyes to friends we made at the Caravan Park and after a bit of manouvering we left intact to begin the next stage of our trip. We went to the Port to fill up with petrol and after spending a few dollars we were on our way. We arrived at Portsmith about 2 o’clock after travelling on a gravel road 23 kms west off the highway. We booked into the Caravan Park at the reception but when we went to pay for it with our credit card the transaction was declined. Now I won't mention names but someone left the credit card back at the BP in Broome 170kms away and it wasn’t me. “We are not all perfect”. So we had to drive back to Broome to pick up the card and ring the bank and get our funds reinstated. It wasn’t a complete waste of time as we stopped at the Icecreamery in Broome for a icecream & thickshake. They make their own icecream and I had a coconut scoop and a Honey comb crunch scoop- very nice- DH had the thickshake Coconut flavoured. We arrived back about 5.30-6.00pm.
