7 June 2008 – Coober Pedy

The alarm was set for 7.00am as a day of rest and relaxation was planned.  We awoke to overcast skies with rain threatening, 

After breakfast, we packed up the motorhome and headed off to visit the local sites.  First stop was the noodling area where we secured an amount of discarded mine material to bring home so our son and grandson can experience the thrill of searching for opal.  The motorhome was then refuelled (still far from happy with the fuel consumption) and we then paid a visit to “Fay’s” home to catch up with the owners who we met last year. 

We then drove around Coober Pedy looking at a lot of the local attractions (you can count them on one hand).  This included the golf course and some deserted mines where we stopped for photographs.  We stopped at the local airport before heading back into Coober Pedy for coffee and a snack, visits to a couple of shops and a refill of one of the gas bottles.

We had intended to “eat out” for our evening meal but decided to make lunch the main meal due to the weather and the fact that we would have been walking to the restaurant in the evening.  After lunch we headed back to the caravan park for a quiet afternoon.

We will have a light meal tonight and probably head to bed early as we have a long drive tomorrow.  Whilst it is not raining, the sky is becoming very threatening and serious rain is not far away.
