Day 28 – Winton

We had a slow start today. Ann is having some trouble with her hip and what appear to be some spider bites, so we took things pretty easy.

After an early lunch we headed off for some four-wheel driving out of town to visit the Age of Dinosaurs Exhibition and Laboratory. This was fascinating and the guides did a great job of making everything interesting for the very diverse tour group. We didn’t realise how competitive the various dinosaur sites are about having the biggest or the oldest bones, etc. As part of the tour we visited some sheds where volunteers were working with basically dentists’ drills to remove rock from petrified dinosaur bone fragments for later display. No doubt a worthwhile task but the working conditions would be far from ideal.
