We have a car!

Finding a car in this part of the country is a bit of a challenge. We were looking for a relatively comfortable car under $5000, good on fuel and airconditioned too please.

We found one car and the owner stitched us up big time, asking for more than what she offered and then taking the car off the market when we finally agreed to a price.

Husband got a lift to Kununurra after work to look at another car that ticked all the boxes but was a manual. I was up for the challenge but on closer inspection wasn’t quite what we were after.

That same night Husband waited around until another car owner finished work (10:15pm!). Thankfully it was exactly what we were after and almost half the price of the original car we looked at! Thank you Jesus! He stayed at the pilot house in town that night as it’s too dangerous to drive on that road at night time.

Little Boy and I took the new wheels for a spin yesterday. We went and saw Old J who is an Aboriginal man we helped look after last year. It was so nice to see him, even though Little Boy didn’t recognise him at all. It was refreshing to get out of the “house”, but also encouraging to get back into the community and see how much has changed from last year. It certainly puts all the flies, heat and white-man-Turkey-Creek-struggles into perspective to see people truly enjoying and looking after their home and community.
