The Big Wet

Friend Jan & I drove North, 336 kilometers to Childers to collect the STATE of the ART quilt 10 exhibition quilts. It was overcast & grey & rained heavily after Gympie & we encountered flooded creek & river crossings.
But we got through just in time, as the road was later closed due to the flooding.

This is the line of stranded motorists in the centre of Childers. All accommodation was quickly booked out, but we had our beds for the night & a memorable night it was, with a drunken disturbance down the hall. This is how I celebrated my 35th wedding anniversary, while Bob is freezing in Mongolia- life is never dull!

  1. OMG Sue, John and I drove through that same area on late Saturday afternoon on our way home from Gladstone. While it was raining and lots of potholes no road closures. So glad you got home safely.
