TUESDAY 3 OCTOBER     KARRATHA

Hot.

We went fishing at the Back Beach again. Nothing doing, but we gave it a good try.

The way out to the Back Beach goes past a closed caravan park, which appears as if it may have been similar to the one we are in. These big parks were full of workers when the mining was in development and active, and the gas plant was being built at Dampier. Now there is not the same demand for workers any more and there are too many parks in Karratha. The whole town was only built about thirty years ago, and it seems to go in cycles of boom, then languishing, then boom again.

Tea was cold lamb and salads.

Found out later that we won a $37 prize in OzLotto tonight.
