Aborigines in Derby & Fitzroy Crossing

we left Derby Sunday A.M on the Saturday afternoon we went to Woolies for supplies and witnessed lots of indigenous people sat outside and 3 were asleep in the carpark using the kerbs as pillows!! at th jetty about 15 aborigines congregated at the shed on the jetty and unloaded lots of beer cartons.Arriving Fitzroy we went to local pub Crossing Inn at 6pm ( we didnt realize it was closing tme!!) Aborigines were in place that was surrounded by wire mesh !! all were shouting at each other The women being the loudest !! 2 policeman were present at the pub and advised me & Annie it wouldnt be good if we hung around ( at NO point did I feel threatened) after a few laughs with the Police we moved on.The aboriginees were moved on without any fuss BUT we could hear them for a while shouting abuse at each other as they disappeared into the Bush ( I,m hoping they wil be in the pub tomorrow & I will go and  have a drink with themto try and get a ‘feel’ of what they are aboutAlcohol does NOT seem to help them.. sad
