I am one of the luckiest people in the whole entire world. Undoubtedly. I met a friend through a friend who is a pilot in Derby. She’s absolutely lovely, and when she found out that I hadn’t seen any of the Kimberley islands by air, she was determined to give me the opportunity if it came up. Well, she contacted me recently and let me know that there was a spare seat on a flight that was free if I didn’t mind giving a few photos to the couple who’d booked it. I said that sounded like a fair trade… and it most certainly was. The entire area is simply spectacular!!!!
