We are now at a free camp on the banks of a very dry river. The wind has come up we are having dusty willies regularly; we are covered in fine powder and grit and the clean car is all covered once again, much to Gary's chagrin. We are near another Mine Site as we can hear the trucks and equipment working, it continued right through the night
Whilst taking Piper for a walk this afternoon, across the dry river bed; Gary and I were thrilled to see a Daddy Emu, but what made it so great, there was other movement in the grass, and soon we could see chicks, 4 in total, still with their stripes so not very old. Daddy Emu eyed us very seriously and kept wandering along looking for food, the chicks had to keep up or be left behind.
This was so nice, seeing the new babies/chicks, after the good news this morning.
