It was a pretty boring trip but Dad said that if we wanted to get to Daly Waters for dinner that night with the Auchterlonie's, he didn't want to hear any complaints about being hungry, how long to go or that we need to go to the toilet. We read our books most of the time to make the time pass quickly.

A quick phone call to Sarah to check we had the right place as it was a little confusing with some of the signs and we arrived at 5 pm. When we pulled up there were caravans everywhere waiting to get into the caravan park which is just beside the Daly Waters Pub. It looked like we were just going to miss out because the park looked very full. Mum went in to the pub and managed to get us into the overflow area and we were the second last van in and then it was full.

We met up with the Aucherlonie's at the pub for the famous "BEEF & BARRA" night. The Barra was delicious and it is caught in the Gulf of Carpentaria. It was a strange pub that looked like it was put together with bits of old tin and left over scraps. It had bras and knickers hanging off the roof that people who had been there threw up to add to the display. Mum called it a very quirky pub but it was lots of fun and us kids got to do a competition where we had to find out all this information and enter it into our booklets and then we won a free ice-cream. The man forgot to stamp our books so we all went back the other lady and got another ice cream. BONUS!!!!!
There was a man who sang lots of funny songs and played guitar. Dad and Mum got up for a dance and showed us how they used to dance. (a little bit embarrassing for me)

We were so tired because it was such a big day and we had a fairly late night at the pub so we went back to the overflow and I think I was asleep before my head hit the pillow. Dad and Big George stayed on and met some guys from Swan Hill who knew our friend Sam Coffey. They had a later night than the rest of us.
