interesting to see and will be great as the work by the volunteers
outback town we have visited. After refuelling we had lunch in the picnic area opposite the popular Marree Pub. Tim enjoyed playing on the wooden replica of a camel as we are yet to see a live one. One of the things I quickly learned on this trip that feeding three boys (two of whom have
bottomless pits) and Peter is a continuing task from morning to night and it is amazing the food we can get through. It will be a challenge when there are no shops.
after paying our fees at the pub we set up camp. We soon experienced our first attack of outback flies and boy were they bad. Jake and Tim were quick to wear the fly nets covering the face and Connor soon joined them – Peter and I have got used to the constant hand waving to shoo the flies but they are certainly never pleasant. Tonight was our first night actually camping and it was made more enjoyable by being invited by other campers to join them around their camp fire. Next morning we packed up after we all had showers and continued along the Oodnadatta Track.
