It was a day full of quirks and curiosities on our way to the Heartbreak Hotel at Cape Crawford, a town that is located 100 plus kilometres south-west of the nearest coast at the Gulf of Carpentaria.
After Mataranka, the signs advertising Fran’s Teahouse in Larrimah were plentiful. It was mid-morning as we arrived and fresh rain water filter coffee sounded like a plan. She had us hooked with the promise of cold and sweet delights. Until ……..
So it was on to Daly Waters. I see that Jonno, Nugget and Shuffle had beaten us to the town.
For the past few days, we’ve been treated to the dressing up of termite mounds along the road. Today’s fashion included a beanie-clad one, with a football jersey and a fishing rod. T-shirts, workmen’s safety vests and slinky little numbers are also common. I cannot vouch for what this does for the health of the termite colony.
In conclusion today, this sign on a water tank at a roadside rest stop. Take a punt people, take a punt.
