“No, it’s not Never Land”, Tinker Bell said to Peter Pan it’s the Never Never land of the famous Aussie classic ‘We of the Never Never”! We are at Mataranka (the town near where the novel was set in the early 1900s) enjoying the Bitter Springs thermal pools. Nice warm 34 d flowing waters. Coming up from the 3 Ways we stopped overnight at the Daly Waters Hotel. A good stop with a bit of lively entertainment and a nice meal of steak and Barra.
On the way to Mataranka it was recommended that we should call in at Fran’s place at Laramah for a meat pie. David and Jenny Guyatt our friends from CUC were here a year ago and they got stung for $10 a pie. Well the pies are mow $11 and it was too early in the morning for us to partake. Instead we got stung for coffee, tea and scones at $18. Not bad coffee I must say. Fran didn’t have a black eye, just a rather red nose after
