Oct 27, 2015 - Tuesday 27th Oct

Tuesday 27th Oct Well…..Thor decided to unleash the full force of his fury upon us last night (Monday night). About 11pm he decided to bang a few clouds together creating searing, scorching cracks of thunder and a spectacular light show that lit up our tent like some weird khaki discotheque. But this was no piddling 5 minute effort….for a full hour we were treated to this awesome display of mother nature at her fiercest…..and accompanying this onslaught was torrential rain.

THURSDAY 15th October Today we started our trip south; originally according to the itinerary we were to go to Town of 1770 but have decided we will skip that due to the business in that area at the moment and head to Lake Monduran.

It was a silent movie staring Busta Keaten called Steam Boat Billy Jr.  It doors were open and we went into the wooden building built in 1928. The same old man who had opened up and sold us the tickets came onto stage to tell us a little bit about it's history. Apparetly it had started showog talkies along with being the main function room for the town but then a bus load of tour guides had asked to see a silent...
