Thursday morning walk

On Thursday morning I only walked a short walk around the immediate surroundings of the caravan park. At the turn off to the caravan park I found this monument commemorating Edward John Eyre who gave Crystal Brook its name. He was on an expedition to find an overland route from Adelaide to Port Lincoln.

The inscription on the plaque gives more details.

On the other side of the road into the caravan park is this old plough within the area of the show ground.

Buildings in the show grounds.

Ring to tie up cattle in the show grounds

Next to the show grounds are the wheat silos, serviced by a separate train track. The whole area is a wheat growing area. In the nearby town of Gladstone, Australia’s largest inland grain storage facility is located.

Another experiment in grey scale.

Under the railway bridge I saw this pigeon looking down on me.

I assume this is its partner.

Another tree climber, far from the ones in Burra Creek Gorge.

Thursday was quite a miserable day – we mostly stayed inside except for venturing out to greet new arrivals. Happy hour didn’t take place; just too wet.
