Mt Morgan Qld

A old swinging bridge once used by workers to get to work on the Mine

No, we haven't moved on we are still in Gracemere and will be until we go to the Rally on Monday 28th Sept. Nothing much has happened since I last blogged. We have enjoyed the company of Lesley and Wayne they are entertainers and will be singing at the Rally, Wayne also does vinyl signs and Lesley is a beautician and Masseur, they actually left today to entertain at the Solo's rally but we will catch up with them at the Rockhampton Rally. Our neighbours were Norm and Pam they were travelling around from Victoria with their Greyhounds they were lucky enough to have a win at the Derby here. They have now gone to try their luck at Townsville. So we are now looking for new friends LOL.

The Old Gold Mine

Sunday we drove out to Mt Morgan about 30kms away it was once a thriving Gold Mining Town but now it consists of lots of old historical buildings and quite a bit of character.

The Old Railway Station now the Tourist Information Centre

It is very dry there as I think their ground water is very acidic. There were lots of houses here so obviously residents must commute. There is also many houses left empty and in bad disrepair.

The Mural outside the Bakery

We had lunch at the Bakery and arrived home in time for Happy Hour and a BBQ with Wayne & Leslie and Norm and Pam. Yesterday we caught up with Julie and Peter and Laurie and Patty at the Rodeo Grounds near the Caves. Tomorrow the old girl has to go into the Truck Place for a much needed service so we will take the opportunity to drive over to Yeppoon for the day.
Talk again soon
