Still no computer battery today but I did buy some things from the shop/Post Office including a large bottle of Ginger Beer and 2 litres of milk. The bag was getting heavy by the time I got back to Yemmy.
Mid-afternoon I went for a walk to the far end of the property and suddenly heard a helicopter very low and in fact it landed on the verge of the road that runs along the back of the park. I was going to turn around and walk back but I couldn't resist walking along the road to the chopper and having a yarn with the crewman.
It turns out they are in contract with the electricity people and their job is spraying the conductors to clean them and stop shorting. There's a wind farm under construction in the area and they spray there to keep the dust down. A most interesting chat with the crewman and the driver of the support truck that rolled up soon after touch down.
On the way back to Yemmy I spotted a van with a funny sign painted on the back
In case you can't read it, it says:
'Old Fart Tired Tart & Spare Part'
All that walking today brought my steps up to 4,707 and 3.4km
