Another good nights sleep, it was nearly too warm for my sleepingbag.
I didn't set the alarm, as we only had to drive 254kms, so didn't plan to leave until 9am. I got up about 6:30am and went onto the internet, while Marg slept.
She finally woke about 7:00am, we watched Kochies Sunrise and started to pack up about 7:30am. We left at 8:35am and set cruise to 90kph and away we went. The first stop was about 58kms from Bourke, we then drove to Barringum, about 1km from the NSW/Qld border, still next to no traffic. We stopped at the border to take some snaps and continued onto another rest stop about 88kms up the road to a truck stop. Now we are only 38kms from camp. As we approached Cunnamulla, I noticed an emu in the distance, as we approached he approached us, I slowed, he tried to run beside us, then he made his run across the road. See photo, we stopped.
We drove through Cunnamulla and turned south just before the Warrego river and followed the river for about 4kms until we came across Warrego Riverside Tourist Camp run and owned by Judy Roberts.
We paid Judy $32 for a powered site and headed to site 17, she told us that she has planted herbs and spices by each site and feel free to help ourselves. This Caravan park is lovely, every site is drive thru with a grass section for your awning. I did walk all of 50 meters to check out the Warrego river, it is flowing nicely.
After we connected water and power, we headed into downtown Cunnamulla, to the Info Centre to buy a Fossickers licence, Michael told us to visit the Paroo Shire
offices to purchase one there. It took a good 30 minutes for 3 office workers to do it for us, as the normal person was at lunch. I wander what will be next week's staff training subject will be. Maybe issuing Fossickers Licences. I hope so. After that ordeal we topped up with diesel and checked out the Cunnamulla Fella.
Marg had to pose with him. We headed back to camp, while Marg had a nanna nap, I walked over to the river and took some happy snaps.
Dinner was egg and bacon sangas, was YUMMA. Followed by TV and probably early to bed where I may continue reading the 'Seven deadly sins by David Walsh' about Lance Armstrong's doping during his 7 Tour De France wins.
Tomorrow, we have to drive approx 130kms to Yowah for 3 nights, where we hope to find some Boulder Opal and Yowah Nuts.
