Big sky country 10



At the end of a 500km trip we reached our destination for the day, the opal mining town of Coober Pedy … the weirdest place I’ve ever visited. More on that tomorrow.

  1. This is cool .... I am very very much looking forward to seeing and reading the next posts.

    The colours in this one (and the framing) are great.

  4. I always get Coober Pedy and Kalgoorlie mix up.
    I love how those hills could be hundreds of metres high or as tiny as a little ant hill - with no other distinguishing features in the landscape it's impossible to tell the scale.

  6. Pete I did a tour not sure it is is the tour. I found it so odd that I felt a paid tour was order just to get my bearings.

    Martina and Megan this is one weird place so you will be seeing something different.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
