we decided to drive N&W some more. Ended up in Rubyvale, fossicking for sapphires. The cows roam free thru the little town, if you want to keep them out of your yard, you have to fence. What a hoot. Holly it is about a half a hair better than Cooper Pedy. Not near the views like the breakaways. I will send you some pictures of some of the local characters later. Time for bed, and tomorrow we are for sure heading back the Brisbane way Have a good Halloween, Martha...

yesterday afternoon when we arrived in Tin Can Bay we went to the little Cafe'/Marina where dolphins are supposed to come into the creek.

we had a great day driving around through the mountains. About 3pm we realized we were near Tin Can Bay, didn't have time to stop here with Special Blend.  There is a little place right at the tip of the Bay that a couple of dolphins come in every morning to be fed. At some point one was nursed back to health there and brought friends back with him.  This place reminds us a little of  the bay areas of Florida nothing fancy, except we are staying in a great little place right on the water. Afte...
