Day 15

Saturday 3rd

Up early and decided to see if I could do my walk without breakfast and I did, but wouldn’t want to go any further than my 2 km.  Kay and Mark all packed up early and set off at 7.30 am. Its warming up and fine. Well we watched the families next door pack up they went in dribs and drabs, but Todd and Harvey families were last.  We spent a quiet afternoon, computer work, reading, had another swim. The fire was still smoldering over at Todd’s so we went and checked out the coals for a camp oven tea, and they were lovely so piled all the wood up so it’d keep going.  Went down and sat at Kay’s site to get photos of the platypus.  He didn’t come out, but we have neighbor’s so Don went over to tell them the story about the fire and they were cooking their tea on a cooker, so it was no problem using the fire pit for camp oven.  Had sausages, roast veggies was lovely. Time for bed.

Day 16

22nd April Tuesday to 23rd Wednesday

Packing up today and going to stay in Miles as we need to do a big wash. The fire was still going this morning so had my cuppa by it, so nice. Caravan Park pretty run down but clean enough, more to the point the washing machines were not to exe, so I got 3 loads washed and dried, hot showers and went to pub for tea. Was a very noisy night as we are right on the Hwy trucks all night, never mind catch up tonight.

24th April Thursday 

Up at 4.30 am made a cuppa and watched the sky change, all the miners heading off to work or coming home, so much mining and gas mining  going on, unbelievable. Heading to Chinchilla to get Dons tablets, but we couldn’t get them so they ordered into Dalby so when we go there on Saturday they will have them for him. Off we go to Archer’s Crossing, get there and Chris & Kate are there, they decided to drag the holiday out a few more days. Stayed a couple of days here, lovely lot of water in the river, very green, some sort of algae in it so we did not put the rubber ducky in. Went for a big walk, did some night shooting and sat around the fire with Kate & Chris, bed by 8 pm.
