June 22nd 2015
From our camp De Rose Hill
North of Oodnadatta we camped in the area of Neales River, actually the South Branch of the Neales River. We could see that
the site had been very recently flooded as the tiny creek beds were wet and I am sure boggy, if we had tried to cross them. Galahs, Corellas and Budgeregahs are now common in the skies above.
We slept well through the shortest night. The Mulga wood fire from last night was still hot for boiling our breakfast billy today.
Marla was in our sites this morning. It is a busy spot, on the Stuart Highway, offering accommodation,  gargage and meal services to travellers. There are a lot of caravans on the road many of which had stopped to enjoy lunch under the shade of the garden trees. It is a spot to connect with the internet so many of us had our phones to our ears. I posted several blogs from the last few days.
John was able to organise a tyre to be delivered to Leonora by next Friday when we expect to pass that way. We hope the plan works.
We had planned to stop at the Aboriginal Art Gallery ‘Indulkana’ near Chandler but unfortunately it was closed. Tonight we have set up camp a little further north, just off the Stuart Highway about 60 km from the border into Northern Territory and near De Rose Hill. The day is warm at 29.00deg an increase from 6.00deg this morning.
