The "Savannahlander" Railway passes through MT Surprise and we missed it as it passed in both directions, but we did time it right for the Saturday Market. At the market we met several locals including two authors, they each having self published works that we bought and had a lengthy chat with them as well. We also got an introduction to the Policeman's Wife, Liz, she is also an Occupational Therapist and Masseur. Judy, who has been suffering a gradually worsening sore shoulder and upper back for the past few weeks, made a booking and received a relieving massage in the cells at the rear of the Police Station.

Planet Earth Caravan Park host Russell, conducts his "Snake Show" whenever there is enough interest from the guests. We learned valuable information about the behaviour of snakes and how to deal with them in the wild.
