Big sky country 7



We rolled into the small town of Marree a little later than expected because of the tyre, but there was time to find out where to get it replaced and to book a flight over Lake Eyre the next morning.

  2. That is Australiana to a T. This is great I'll be able to have a preview of our trip next month.

  3. I do hope that's not your car. It needs more than a tyre.

  4. Looks like a scene out of Mad Max.

  7. Maybe, the owner of this car did not have a spare tyre.

  8. There is never any shortage of car wrecks in the country but the extreme landscape adds an extra element of fun to the photo.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
