I left the station on the 25th September about 7:30am and the guys were mustering the cattle,as we got close to the yards the cattle were on the move and I captured this image with the early sunlight behind the cattle and the rising dust,A scene I wont get to see for some time (I think).
The night before leaving, all the guys from Durham came over to Woomanooka to say good bye,it was lovely,Cobby (the manager) made a lovely speach and presented me with a beautiful book on SK Kidman,with lots of history and very old photos and clippings which means a lot to me and my boss Stuie gave me a beautiful RM Williams leather handbag,I was very touched by their kindness and I will dearly miss my life in the outback and all the terrific people I met.

When you get a nice send off, it says you’re very much appreciated and that you’re most likely one of them.
thanks David,I will dearly miss the lifestyle and the simplicity of every day living,and the people who made my experience so much fun and the no bullshit that comes with people from the outback.
