July 28th...DAY 42

Before Sunrise at Mt Elphinstone
Fish for breakfast 
Lake Elphinstone was really beautiful this morning with quite a frenzy of birds enjoying breakfast in fact.

We continued south through very dry country and eventually came through  some very busy mining areas.
Everything was big...mullock heaps, trucks, earth movers, trains transporting coal and even the accommodation villages. Broadlea Coal mine, Millinium mine, Coppabella mine, Peak Downs and Blair Athol to name a few of the coal mines we drove passed.

We had made an arrangement to meet Peter & Di Smith on their way north as we travel south. We met at Cleremont. What a fun night the 4 of us had camping at Theresa Creek Dam where there were many other people camping ..probably over 150 rigs
Sausages were cooked and eaten as well as some wine enjoyed. The evening became quite chilly so a late night at 9.30 pm!
