The Royal Fying Doctor Service visits Yowah once weekly

Today's been typical of outback Queensland in April: hot (30°C), dry and still.

This morning we drove out to the Yowah airport where the Royal Flying Doctor lands and offers a medical clinic once every week. On the way back, we stopped at the place where Ian liberates the bucket of frogs he captures from the toilets and bathrooms throughout the caravan park -- every day. Bullrushes grow in water alive with all manner of tiny water creatures and fish.

If I was a frog I think I'd prefer to live in amongst the bullrushes rather than in a toilet bowl. But then I'm not frog.

Tonight a dinner was held at the community hall. Everyone was welcome, including visitors. With live music, a bonfire, friendly people and excellent food it was a happy Easter gathering.
