Gra Nomad Wanderings

But those who hope (trust) in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  Isaiah 40:31
We have seen so many wedge-tailed eagles on this trip. They are such beautiful creatures. I managed to "capture" this one (won't show you the ones I missed!)

 In Andamooka, we checked out the highlights - the long bus, and then some of the early houses built there.

 These were built around 1940-50. They don't build underground like they do in Coober Pedy, another opal mining town.
Think this fella works in a mine-related job and lives in Roxby Downs. You could also hazard a guess that he has a wife and they have 2 kids; one at kindy and the other a pre-schooler. (That's a common scenario in Roxby Downs, which has one of the biggest birthrates in our country.) Just missed CHEV 1 on another Commodore.  
We also saw heaps and heaps of emus, mostly between Broken Hill and Wilcannia. Maybe 50 or more. At least 2 groups of 9 or 10. Then we saw hundreds of goats, mostly pretty close to the road too. Some were really beautiful colours - different browns, cream, white. Thank goodness we didn't see any roos as we decided to bat on and go for Dubbo. 750 km (Broken Hill to Dubbo). Made it to the Colony Crescent Caravan Park in Dubbo by 7 pm. And we have an ensuite site!!! The managers, Deb and Andrew were not even here to greet us, but I guess we'll catch up if we're here for 4 sleeps. Gotta go to THE WEATHER AND YOUR HEALTH tomorrow night, starring Bethany Simons. Google it! An awesome talent. Just click that bit above where it's underlined!!!
