Anniversary Outing - Captains Flat

| | Comments (0)

So for our anniversary we both got the day off work, and decided to go for a drive out to Captains Flat.  Cute little town, although really not much there.  The pub didn't open til dinner time on a Friday - only open for lunch on weekends.  So we had some "lunch" at The Outsider cafe.  There was only SOS mobile reception there, presumably only Telstra has a tower there.  We went up and look at the old entrance to the mine.  But sadly we didn't go out to the radar, which was half the reason I wanted to go.  Stu says "next time".
