|Lamb and sauce sandwich...|
|Heading into Brachina Gorge....|
|Love this landscape...|
|Setting up against our own rock wall...|
|These rock outcrops have been dated to 570-580 million years old. They are quite amazing. Especially those bumpy underside pieces which are totally different to the other rock...|
|Thai green curry prep...|
|I made flat breads (just SR Flour and plain yoghurt)...|
Day 3 Tuesday 3/10/17 Argadells to Brachina Gorge
Today we had toast and tea for breakfast then started packing up. It takes a bit, depending on what we have around the camp. We each had a shower then the tent and mats needs to dry out so time gets away easily. But the beauty of it is that we are in no hurry...
We left Argadells at 12 noon and went into Quorn for a few things. We filled up with water at old mates servo. Good of him to let us use his hose and water.
I bought fresh bread and had sliced up the rest of the roast lamb from last night so we sat in the town playground in the shade and I put together lamb and sauce sandwiches. Magnificent!
Then it was on to Brachina Gorge. We had booked campsite 1 at Brachina East. We arrived and it’s a good spot. Fairly dusty but shaded by a big rocky outcrop. There are others just up from us in another camp.
We levelled Pearl out then once we popped her open, we had the inside set up and bed made, within 15 minutes.
We’ll light the pig tonight and we have Thai Green curry for dinner which I will prepare and Gus will cook outside. I also made flatbreads to go with it.
Day 2 Monday 02/10/2017 (Labour Day Holiday)
We had a late cooked breakfast then, had a bush shower each then went for a drive to get some phone signal. We’d forgotten to tell Kirby where we were staying each night. Brianna is still overseas in Iceland, arriving home Wednesday.
We took a drive back to Warren Gorge to have a look in there. Quite a nice lot of camp grounds there.
On our way back, we got another $10 worth of wood from Malcolm then it was back to camp to while away the afternoon. The weather is lovely and warm and there are not many flies, so that's good.
We had a platter of nibbles, meats and cheese, crackers and fruit for lunch and a bottle of pinot noir.
I had a snooze in the afternoon and Gus pottered around camp. We officially named Pearl and got her sticker put on.
It’s roast lamb for dinner. Gus got the fire going early and got the little lamb roast going on the spit. We did potatoes and carrots in the BabyQ in a foil tray and I did (Surprise) peas and gravy inside. It was a great roast dinner! We sat around the nice fire for way too long. We had toasted marshmallows and McVities Digestives (toast the marshmallow so the bottom is nearly molten then sit it on top of the chocolate biscuit - devour!) for dessert and shouldn’t have hopped into the chocolate port! Whoopsies! Bed at 1pm!
It was pretty cold overnight but the hot water bottles and ruby rug kept us cosy.
