I just noticed that it's Rizal day in the Philippines today, we wandered Paco park where their Patriot Jose Rizal is buried when I visited the Philippines in 2013.
There's a Rizal street in every single Philippine town so he must be very highly regarded.
Hopefully Australia will eventually realise that it's independent without the bloodshed many other countries have used.
I took the dirt road exit to the south of town to save a bit of distance, in hindsight a mistake, it seems it's another track that only gets graded when the local repair shops have too many jobs on their books.
Some evasion work resulted in a dented guard.
This to a degree is linked to the current practice of cars having much larger "A" pillars than in previous generations, I saw Skippy at the side of the road but he must have jumped in the blind spot made by the A pillar.
The damage is only cosmetic.
Upon checking the place out it seems that it's a caravan park, although I think the ablutions in front of Daisy are meant for that.
Anyway the current Earth Google view shows the end of the bitumen exactly where currently is -21.062, their street view is from an older time.
Daisy looks pristine here still, incidents later on the journey have left her looking world weary, but more about that later.
We went via a slightly longer inland route and this was the high point of the southern leg, A new to me rest area just west of the White ranges lookout on the Flinders Highway.
The road train would have dropped to fuel to filling stations who historically have used very healthy margins.
It was quite warm weather which meant being annoyed by more flies than it's possible to believe could exist, just another factor that for me meant taking less photos than I would have liked.
Nothing of us again I'm afraid but it was a lovely night and the entertainment was better than last Sunday, something for us to think about.
