Breakaways 1 of 3



We took an extra rest day at Coober Pedy.  35kms outside of the town are the Breakaways another specatular chain of ancient eroded mountains so you are in for yet another run of pretty pictures.

  2. Look at that poor old tree.
    So twisted and gnarled.
    This landscape reminds me of Israel
    (not that I've been there - but I saw a picture of the Garden of Gethsemane) and it had trees like this one and rocky, orange hills.

  3. I have walked through the Breakaways ... in the early light too. Breathtaking ...

  4. I'm really disappointed not to get out there. It looks like a fascinating area. Although I see you backtracked and didn't go via William Creek as I thought you had.

    I'll just have to plan another trip to the Flinders. I found out there is a bus from Adelaide to Arkaroola with stops along the way and I'm sure you can get a bus from Port Augusta to Coober Pedy. Its definitely back on the list.

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."

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.
