Day 20

26th April Saturday to 27th April Sunday

Off to Dalby, said cheerio to Kate and ¬†Chris. They left before us.Packed up and left. Got to Dalby, had a few things to do, also fueled up, toilet dump and top up the water, our regular routine in big towns. We headed off down the Moonie Hwy and got to Lake Broadwater, checked the place out, lots of people but decided by Sunday they will mostly be going home as the holiday weekend is finished, and they did, ūüôā such a beautiful spot, lake full of water, it’s a very big lake as is their mossies, ūüė¶ Very big area for camping, lots of trees, hot showers for a $1, flushing toilets, lots of water birds so its a nice relaxing time¬†¬†winding down to home time. Boo Hoo. There was a snake in the trees down from us, I did not see it, but the man told me to be aware, I said, I‚Äôm always aware for snakes. We also had a opossum visit us both nights he was too friendly but so cute, still had to give it it’s marching orders.

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.
