Saturday July 10th


We left at about 9.30am, going north to  Eromanga.  The road was bitumen all the way which was a very pleasant change. The country side showed quite a lot of variety of green, dried and dead trees, quite a few cattle of red, white and black. We stopped at the waterhole the Bellalie Water Hole to have a late morning read of our books as well as lunch. After this we came on to Eromanga where we have booked into a very poor camping park. However I have been fortunate to be able to make several phone calles to friends.

About 2.00pm we drove our to the Eromanga Dinasaur Museum. We found this interesting and joined an hour long tour of the prescinct. I am not at all knowledgeable about dinasaurs but certainly learned a little about these huge creatures. 

Take note in the photo the size of Cooper's shin bone as well as the size of his toes compared with me. This dinasaur was called Cooper because the bones were found near the Cooper Creek. The young lad who found the first bone was about 14/15 years old. It seems remarkable to me that a young chap would recognize the bone as being unusual.
