Our next stop from Toompine was Quilpie. Another cute town. We found a free camp right by a lake.
Lake Houdraman was a haven for birdwatchers and also the residential emus and cattle as well as a goanna.
It was here we met up with Carina & Pete. We enjoyed our campfires and chin wags over the next four evenings.
We did a little fossicking for opal, too.
It was at this town that us city slickers found that in the outback everyone enjoys the week end. The shops close at noon on Saturday and re open again on Monday.
The clouds started rolling in and we were concerned that we may get bogged in if we were here in the wet so we headed off to Windorah.
