2002 Travels May 24


John slept very late – not surprising.

I read and sewed. Then went to the shops and got my photos back. I was quite pleased with the Duck Creek ones.

After John had breakfast, he returned to the computer.

The country around here was originally settled by the well-known Durack pioneering pastoral family – before they moved on to take up land in the Kimberley. Ray Station, to the NW of Quilpie, is an original Durack place.

Later in the day, we drove out the Toompine road for a few kms, then drove on the track out to the jump up called Baldy Top, and then climbed the walk track up to its top, to the lookout. The view was extensive – of mostly flat country, all round. Flat plains, and more flat plains. Lines of trees marked drainage channels. It was a worthwhile little expedition.

I cooked fries and battered frozen fish from a packet, for tea.
