Ok people, a few technical problems whilst we sorted out our internet problems, but we are back now!!!!

We left sunny Adelaide and drove to Port Augusta.

On Friday we got up and went for a visit to the Wadlata Outback Centre where the kids learned about the dreamtime, native animals, and the early explorers. There was lots of "hands on" stuff for the kids about the Royal Flying Drs Service and the School of the Air. The day was very informative and lots of fun. When we left there we went for a drive to the Old Water Tower Lookout and then for a walk around the town.

On Saturday we drove to Woomera and shortly after arriving and beginning to set up I slammed my finger in the car door. I felt sick and feint and the kids got a fright, but after I had a lie down for a while I was able to get up and get going again.

On Sunday we got up and went to the Woomera Heritage and Visitor Information Centre. Here we learnt all about the second World War and how England came to Australia looking for somewhere to build and test rockets and bombs. Surprisingly the kids really enjoyed it.

Tomorrow we are off to Coober Pedy, where Cait hopes to make her fortune in an opal mine!!!!
