Location: Coober Pedy

MapArrived in Coober Pedy after one overnighter on the road.We camped out with a bushfire and met up with a woman travelling in an old Falcon and 3 children.She home teaches them and they are travelling for 6 months.In the morning the fire still had embers in it so Dale cooked our toast for breakfast on it what a lovely taste they had.
On arriving in Coober Pedy we set up at the opal caravan park and have decided to stay for 3` nights.
We visited the local pub which is right in front of our park ordered a meal from the bistro which was delicious and watched the Eagles great win(so proud).Cheryl and I visited the pokies and Cheryl won $70.00 and I won $30.00.I couldnt stay as the Eagles were more important so sat in the bar and watched them was wellith a few Jamisons (Irish whiskey) John and Dale were in the bar already and well on the way !!!!We all had a great night and met some real characters !!!.
