Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.

I should hope you have more to show us on the return journey. You 'promised' us until the end of November.
Julie, I sped it up a little but there are still a couple of weeks left.ReplyDelete
I like the orange stripe of cloud. You sure had a great trip and took some fab shots. Looking forward to more.ReplyDelete
