Arrived at Weipa this afternoon, the largest bauxite mine in the world which they use to make aluminium. The Caravan park is on the coast and very shadey with huge trees, and has a nice feel about it. However they have warned us t o stay away from one end near the river because there is a huge croc living there that attacked a person recently and took his leg ( we are at the other end). The weather is getting stickier and we are sleeping with the canvases up and just the netting windows hoping a breeze might drift through. The mozzies aren't too bad but there are other annoying insects hanging around like the flying beetles that crash land into you! The accompanying photo if you can't make it out is of Dennis and I with the little lanterns that tj gave Dennis last year for fathers day. Today we stopped at Coen so Warrick could get some repairs on his wheel, we were the minority white fellas ! The roads were very rough in patches corrugations are the pits. Weipa had a huge ship docked at the wharf and a set of lights to allow the comalco trucks right of way. There is also a military base here, it is the biggest town on the peninsular and has a woollies supermarket so we will stock up. We're staying here for two nights to catch up with washing, you get filthy because everything you touch has a film of dust on it. The dust is so fine it gets through the seals on the car and the camper, so I have to wash the dishes before we can use them. The ferry at the jardine river crossing is being repaired and won't be ready until Monday which is another reason we are stopping here for two days.
