Arrived in Longreach after night at the shearers camp. Nice to have the comforts of a motel, and a short walk to a cooked breakfast in the morning and a cold beer of the afternoon.
Look closely at the photo with the hedge to see the kangaroo that came into town.

Just arrived I'm Charleville, nice trip up from Collarenibri this morning. Stopped for petrol and cup if tea at Dirrenbandi and lunch at truck stop at Cunnunulla. Plenty of dead roos on the road, but luckily we didn't see any live ones thus afternoon. Plenty of emus and a few goats. Saw a nice wedge tail eagle and plenty of hawks picking on the dead roos on the road.

Derrima is a property outside Collarenibri where Andrew's cousin lives. Derrima has been in the Barton family for a long time. It hasn't "rained" for three years and it starts when we are 20kms from town. It is so good to see the place getting rain and smell of fresh rain on dry dirt is something else.

Lovely town. Very quiet in Good Friday though. Overcast, but no rain. The rain stopped between here and Toowoomba. The traffic has been great no problem at all. The girls are back on their phones as they gave signal back. It has been quiet for an hour or so.
