SUNDAY 25 MAY ADELS GROVE
We were on the same jobs as yesterday.
B and M arrived back from NSW, via Cloncurry. Most importantly, they brought with them the six casks of wine and slab of beer that we had asked them to get for us. That sounded a lot, but we didn’t know when the next alcohol run would be! They brought similar supplies for the other staff.
Until now, they had been staying in a room in the staff donga, but now brought their 4WD and camper trailer back. Having the vehicle will allow them to explore the area more in their times off.
They set up the camper in the staff area down in the Grove, across towards where D and H were.
We had now secured agreement from boss that, once cook leaves, we can move the van down into the staff area in the Grove – away from that bloody generator! It would seem that the power being drawn by her bus was such that two lots of us could take her place.
At tea time, we farewelled cook and daughter. That brought back memories of our farewell, last August, as we left for the ill-fated sojourn at Doomadgee.
