Leaving Lloyd Jones Weir we refuelled in Barcaldine before heading to Longreach. Listening to the ABC we learned that Longreach was celebrating its 125 year anniversary. As a consequence it was quite busy. We walked around in the Business Centre and had a sausage roll at the Merino Bakery with a nice mugochino. At the information centre we checked out the river cruises. No luck – they were fully booked, no doubt because of the celebrations.
We did a bit of shopping at Foodworks and bought Y-bone steaks and lamb chops at the Mitchell Grass Meats Butcher. Very tasty meat, If you check out their website, have a look at their recipes. There is one for bacon and liver for breakfast lunch or dinner. If Lesley decides to cook that – I’ll go for a long walk. I can’t stand the smell of it.
Going for a walk in the evening I managed to get some photos I like.
