Travelling on

We re-visited Oma Waterhole, out of Isisford, all 12 kms of dirt road, more corrugated than out to Lara.  But we had a blissful two days out there on the banks of the Barcoo River where keen fishermen come and where they are holding a great fishing competition next weekend.

Judy and her husband 'Wombat' have been staying out here for a month and are staying for the fishing comp.  They have made themselves comfortable in their caravan with a carpet out the front under the awning.  Wombat is quite a talented artist doing mainly water colours and I bought one of his paintings, well a print, in vivid colours, which will bring lovely memories of this nice relaxed spot.

There were four small dogs here and they all got along well.

Denny cooked a marvelous roast pork in the camp oven, complete with perfect crackling.

Get an eyeful of this!  It tasted as good as it looked.

We then drove to Ilfracombe where they have a lovely warm thermal pool.  We had sampled this 6 years ago and did not go in this time, just took a piccy.

The town's main street is lined with old farm machinery which is quite an attraction.

The pub which has its ceiling and walls full of hats.
