Eggbert was superseded by Bertie, the Billabong Caravan, and is the new bigger and better version! Geoff and Varena are still on their big trip - into their eighth year! Heading from Darwin to: Bungle Bungles, Tanami Desert, Alice Springs, Dalhousie Springs, Woomera, Lake Eyre, Nullarbor, Western Australia, Eyre Peninsular, Melbourne, Canberra, Blue Mountains, Bourke, Cameron Corner, Toowoomba, Tully, Birdsville - who knows what adventures they will have, or how long they will be on the road?

headed for the “Monster Markets” at Mission Beach in the morning.
I was hoping they would be better than the regular fortnightly
markets. They were much better, though still not as good as Mindil
Beach or Port Douglas.
bumped into Leah & Gene from Port Douglas, who were down for a
couple of days away. They had just arrived, but came over to the
house mid-afternoon for a cuppa & a chat.
was around for Skype tonight, surprisingly, as she & John were
supposed to be cruising on the Rhone River through France. But there
was a major melt-down with British Airways IT system & all
flights were cancelled!

I dodged the markets again, but enjoyed having a chat with Gene and Leah. Leah has been a bit crook recently, but she seemed to enjoy the local chocolate and home-grown paw paw, as did we all.
