Karratha on the UP and UP

Post by Guest on Sun 10 Mar 2013, 4:16 pm

pulled in to the visitors centre for a quick snap of the landscape--for those of u who havent been here for 20 years --look out.



We even hit the big time with 2 tower cranes on one job..


and out the back of the cemetry where they lay u to rest--well theres activity next to that with a new suburb goin in..


still in Bayton West and a new set of appartments goin in as well



yep we have a few sets of trafic lights and even our roundabouts have some sort of steel structure trying to appease them with there own sort of beautification...


March on Karratha --I dont know were its really heading but time will tell--and yes u will be swinging within about 10ks of town..I think even this structure has lost its way--glad I know my way home--heaven help the rest of u.. lol!

Ray, what have they called the suburb next to the cemetary? Boot Hill? lwkgh

I knew a couple back in the mi-80's who came to Qld from K-town. He had a chemist shop there.
Noel and Joy ???. Both Kiwis. Can't remember their surname.
