      So.. you have a favourite, odd, good memories, bad experiences, lost days hehe

      Stayed there once while on a family holiday as a boy. Had to, we where flooded in. The publican of the time (early 1970's) was stopping every vehicle going through and telling them the road was impassable. We were on our way to the Flinders Ranges. (Got flooded in at the campsite there too, must have been a very wet year.)

      Population of Craddock at that time was 4, the publican and his wife and the postmaster and his wife. It was soon to be 2 as the postmaster (& wife) were leaving. It was about 34 that night.
      Mum, Dad, and I slept in our sleeping bags on the floor of the lounge in front of the open fire. Everybody got a cooked breakfast the next morning courtesy of the publican. The other thing that springs to mind is that he was also a photographer and had a Hassellblad camera that he let Dad 'play with' for a while. Dad was a keen photographer and was thrilled to have the opportunity.
      This post may be fact or opinion, it is up to you to decide which.

        Hasselblad.. state of the art in those years.
        Can you get any pics of the pub or district that were taken on that trip by your father?
        If so PM me and I will give you an email addy. I look after the Pub's website and always looking for some nostalgia.
        BTW 7 years ago this Jan, 18 inches of water came across this flat and gave everything a good old drink..hehe.

        Ahh the Craddock Used to go there every week or 2 for a meal and such when living in Hawker. Great food!

        Also the Hawker pub was pretty good. Spent many a evening drinking and playing pool.

        Any of the drinking and eating spots in Woomera were pretty good as well. The nosh up they used to do at the oval every weekend was always a highlight of a week there. Rob and his missus Lyn were good cooks.
