Another beautiful day has dawned and we are heading to Charters towers today. Packed and ready to go mid morning, didn't load the Jimny on the trailer as there's not that far to go.
Nearing the intersection to the Flinders highway Jim has a bit of scare with a Wedge Tailed Eagle - it slammed into the windscreen of the bus and cracked it rather badly!, still in one piece so continue on to the Bivouac Junction camp site to park up at $138.00 per week. Will have to contact insurance co. to get the windscreen replaced. I saw the eagle fly into the scrub on the road side, seemed to be O.K. but will never know if it survived or not.

Despite not much water in the system at present, it is still very pretty.

Having a good relaxing time, taking the pup's for a swim 2 or 3 times a day resting and the like,(life is really tough).
Have had the windscreen looked at and will take the bus into Charters Towers on Monday 1st June to have it replaced. In the mean time - just have to take it easy.
Not much happening around here. We have decided to head into Charters Towers on Sunday afternoon 31st of May, probably to the Gold City Roadhouse for the night so we can get the windscreen people to fix us up early on Monday morning.
Catch you next month.
