June 25th


Getting into the swing of things, up by 8am. Then just decided to relax. I was the last to leave the park around 11am. Just read a bit, played some games. Theres no rush, im retired.


Got to the little town of something between mt iza and berkly homestead. It had  the word moo in it. camooweal or something? Was  a little town of 390 people. Got fuel for 1.55$ which isn't the best but far from the worst i have seen and then grabbed a six pack of 4x Mango that was on sale.

Stopped about 100km down the road to enjoy an afternoon drink and eat lunch. Then had more of a read. At about 5pm i decided to drive 40km to the next rest area with a washroom and glad i did. Not only is the washroom nice, but the area is huge so no one is crowding in. Should be a quiet night tonight, might go and do some pictures and look for scorpions agian. But for now i am going to watch the last episode of misfits, thanks to michael, and then have some dinner. Also a drink, i am retired!

Got into Mt Isa in good time. Had coffee and internet at the info centre then checked out the releigh river fossils which were pretty cool. Even introduced by david attenborough.

Just at an old abandond town called Mary Kathleen. Its pretty weird but may push on in a few for the night. There is a lake near by so i might check that out instead.

The lake is amazing, Corella Dam its called, and its a very cool place to be. I talked to some people about birds, fresh water crocs (which i am hoping to see) and the fact that this lake was made to feed the town of Mary Kathleen. All interesting. I am here camped by some kind people who were happy to have me squeeze in next to them. I thought this would be a baron place but it is essentially a village, with a population more then the supporting towns. Ive asked around and some people have been here for months. There are yabbie pots in everywhere, boats, kayaks everything, on this little lake half the size of leach lake, likely smaller!

Will be trying to get some shots toinght of the stars and such as that seems to be the trend, but am in a photo editing mood so might give the old deep cycle a good work out. Just doing some photos from flinders ranges now. Will try to get caught up as i have fallen behind. What a very cool place though, and as always very cool people.
