WEDNESDAY 12 APRIL MT ISA
Did little today. I mostly read and John spent his time on the computer.
Phoned Adels. The news was no better, though the rain there had stopped, after days on end of it. M said the O’Shaughnessy River was on the rise. Bad news that, because it was one of the streams to be forded if we went the most direct way from here. She reckoned that, when we could get in, it would be via Burke and Wills Roadhouse. That would mean we would have to back track from here to Cloncurry.
We clearly were not going to be at Adels in time for Easter. But then, neither were any guests!
