Don't worry about Day 04. We spent it at Coward Springs, birdwatching, walking, spa-ing, checking out the few buildings, relaxing, sleeping, eating ... you know what I mean.

The vehicle to the far left was interesting. A closer image is below. I got a bit excited as Alberton is a small village south of Yarram in far eastern Victoria quite near home. Here was a vehicle from there. Wonders will never cease. However ...
... there is another Alberton, in the northern suburbs of Adelaide. This truck hadn't travelled far at all!
At Oodnadatta, we turned north [the Track itself makes it's way out to the Stuart Highway at Marla] to Hamilton Station and further on to Eringa Waterhole. This is a permanent waterbody on Lindsay Creek. It is about eight hundred metres long and up to 100 metres wide. It was an excellent place to camp with just one other camper. The sunset and stars were magnificent and the sunrise superb.
The galahs coming in for an evening drink were spectacular with their aerial displays in the light of a setting sun.

More on Eringa tomorrow.
