Date 19 June 2011 Sunday

Destination: From one creek bed to a creek bed campsite that was full of flood debris so again lots of firewood, Cows and a water trough.

Distance: 100km

7pm: Dinner at creek bed
Spaghetti w cheese sauce
2 spoons cheese
1 spoon oil

That cheese sauce is not that good so don??t buy it again.

My laptop battery ran out last night so I had to handwrite my notes from today.

In the morning I passed a dead roo. I was struck by the bullet hole and how unmassacred the animal looked. At first I assumed it had been hit by a vehicle then shot to put it out of its misery but later I wondered at that. It was in such good condition with no broken bits that I could see. I wondered if someone had just shot it for fun. They??d have had to stop beforehand. It was a female. Such a shame. We don??t actually see too many kangaroos along this road.

There was water in a few creeks after Ngumban. I fliled up once for dinner.

Last night I converted my older socks to toe socks so I could wear them with thongs. I am now trying not to go sockless to protect my heels.

Annotated… In the wrong spot.

No Grog. The gate to the Aborigine homestead. “No Grog” is a warning to those who enter but it amused me to think of it as the name of the property.

The windy picnic site of Ngumban Cliffs.

Most of the rest are taken from the top of the cliff. But approaching this site i rode past some lovely scenic spots. Just didn't want to stop.

My dinner table. Spaghetti again for dinner. annotated.

Pic #1 is powerful. # 4 is a fav. The landscape is fantastic, isn't it? Makes me want to travel out that way too.
