Surat, Roma and Muckabilla

Not a long way on to Surat. Set up at Fisherman's Reserve for the night. Next morning is market day down along the river walk in town. Thinking fresh home grown veggies but found only bling. So walked the streets trying to get warm and snapped the cemetery photo and the couple sunning themselves along the way.

thing I find interesting about the headstone is that it does not mention the mother of the child, go figure. The dedication reads, in part, "To the memory of Samuel Carleton Gordon Brown, third child of Samuel Brown, of Coovrefn? Moonie River, died 10th February 1872 aged 20 months and 27 days" then some very hard to read quote probably from the bible. So where is mum? No mention on the grave stone and not in any graves near by.

Roma for provisions. Love street art and the horse in Roma is not an overly bad example. Then on to Muckadilla for the night to camp. Ludwig and I have shared camp spots before.
