5-9-11 off again, on our way to Lawn Hill. We stopped at Normanton for supplies & fuel. We stopped & had a look at Normanton Railway Station & the Gulf Lander train. Then off again to a freebie we had heard about & not in the Camps Book. It was 60 km south of Normanton at the Flinders River Crossing, a great spot. We set up camp & went down to the river where the fish was jumping, set Margy up on a chair as her foot & side were hurting from her fall & we had a fish. Guess what, we could not catch anything, they were teasing us. It was very hot, but cooled off at night. 6-9-11 off early & stopped at Burke & Wills Roadhouse for fuel & then onto Gregory Downs by lunch time. We set up at a freebie & went for a walk down to the river, it was great, a fast flowing river where you can float down with the current. The boys had a great time letting the current take them down & getting out & walking back to do it again. I did it a few times, but poor Margy is still hurting, but putting up a great front. Lots of vans at the river, we were told that as of 2012 you can’t stay there, only tents. We will stay there on the way back from Lawn Hill. We all had a game of Rummicube & had tea & went to bed. Off to Adel’s Grove tomorrow.
