Meow's Favourite Pictures

Just a bunch of pictures, which I absolutely love, and would like to share with you ....

In Weipa, in North-Western Queensland, they mine bauxite (hope that's spelt correctly), which somehow eventually becomes Aluminium. The raw bauxite is conveyored from the trucks, through a huge system of conveyor belts, to this thing, which transfers the bauxite onto huge mounds. I thought the colour was amazing, and just loved the way the individual pieces were visible in the line of stuff being poured onto the mound.

Weipa was a surprise, didn't expect anything like a town up there, loved Coen and the Exchange Hotel that somesody had added an S to the start of.

Peter ... I know what you mean. It is an interesting town, didn't spend much time on Coen, though, but saw the (S)Exchange Hotel !!
Take care, Meow
