|Robbery under sweets, Jesus…. Well there was mayhem and drug busts in Boulder today but we were being robbed in the Olde Worlde Lolly Shoppe. And I was so looking forward to some boiled sweets but I’m not paying $45 a kg when I can get then at Crazy Clarks for $3 for 500gms…..” It’s the Eastern Goldfields, what would you expect” said the chap next to me….
Apart from the shock of that we had a great day in and around Kalgoorlie took some great shots and made a decisive decision to use the Boulder Town Hall in my Tramway, I’ll need a Town Hall and this one looks nice plus of course it once had trams running past it.
Wonderful weather but it turned colder in the afternoon.
We leave tomorrow heading to Merredin and as we have been in contact with Mr & Mrs Gnome who want to meet us at Kalbarri on the 15th we have been instructed to slow down and smell the wildflowers so we will stay 2 nights at Merredin hopefully we can find Pumping Station No.8 enroute, its apparently virtually complete, when it was closed in 1970 the workers just downed tools and walked off.
