The clouds built up overnight and rain was forecast for the day. It was Mum’s birthday today and Dad found two young German men to sing Happy Birthday with us. They had broken down and we towed them back north 20kms to Kulgera.
We drove south in the drizzling rain to Coober Pedy which was a miserable place in the rain – probably in the dry too.
We stayed in an underground motel which was very warm and different. It stayed wet outside and we knew we’d made the right decision to not try to get to Mt Dare in the Simpson Desert.
