We arrived here yesterday just after afairly quick trip. No internet coverage for the last three days so a bit to catch up on. Our route skirted the eastern edge of the drought area and some places near Emerald were lush and green. Have never seen kangaroos so lean with many dead along the road.
Denny was happy with the wildlife which included an albino kangaroo just south of the Qld border and a dingo near Belyando Crossing.
Arrived to avery warm welcome from our new community who helped me celebrate a birthday with a few cold drinks. The place is very green and lush which is surprising since there has been about a quarter of normal rainfall. There is a cyclone moving this way so we may get some rain this weekend.
Now the work starts with the construction of our tropical donga. Our other van survived well under the tarp and will be moved on site in the next few days. Just waiting for my tools to arrive on the removalist this week. More photos of progress next week.
The enclosed photo is probably familiar to fans of an insect show called Miniscule on TV. There is a bossy ant with a very annoying whistle. It's probably an indication of my mental state that I spent smoko on the roadside seeing how big a piece of Anzac biscuit the ant could carry. That will teach that French ant to holiday near Greenvale.
