Leaving the station.



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.

Our supplies have arrived.

Our food supplies come every 3 months (Hopefully).The food is ordered in Brisbane  and comes to Quilpie by rail, then some one from the station drives the horse truck in and picks up the pallets of food. Quilpie is about a 4 hour drive and whilst they are in town they buys other things that are required for the station.We were all excited about it arriving as our stores were very low and cooking was becoming quite a challenge.4 of us unpacked the supplies and packed them in the store room.I live 30 min drive from the main station,its like an outing for me to go over there.
