Left camp and headed out on the William Creek road. It was very flat with hardly a tree in site and plenty of Gibba plains. Our track passed Lake Cadibarrawirracanna or Lake Cadi for short. From the distance we could make out some water in it, and there has also been some water in the shallow depressions along the track - something you don't normally see.
Joined the Oodnadatta Track at William Creek. The road up to here has been pretty good and the recent light rain has helped keep the dust to a minimum. A quick stop in William Creek and checked out the varied collection of recovered rocket wreckage (launched from Woomera) which landed all over the stations :) and old farm machinery. And of course the p**** Willow tree - a prop that was used in a movie. It had cats in varying stages of decomposition hanging from the branches. At first we thought they were real cats (which the kids have varying degrees of reaction to) but found out they were just replicas. Got to love the outback sense of humour.
Headed on to the Oodnadatta Track which is a bit more used and therefore bumpy. Lots of flat salt pans and as we head closer to Lake Eyre we are quickly losing evelation too. Have been following the Old Ghan Railway and stopped in some of the ruins along the way. It was very windy out on the plains making it rather cold. Headed to Coward Springs for the night, a great camping spot with individual camp sites and a spa. The wind has eased off and it is a great night around the fire. The kids all jumped in the spa at sunset and had a great time.
