Stampede


I find it too hard to grasp that these footprints were left by dinosaurs millions of years ago.  They come in small, medium and large.  The little ones look like bird prints in the sand.  I am not sure if I am impressed or underwhelmed.

  1. If I saw them in person I might feel the same way you do but as a trio of photos I like them very much.

    1. I really enjoyed this trip, as much for the changing landscape on the way as for the dinosaur destinations. I loved my whole visit to the area - Hughendon, Winton, Longreach and will probably go back that way next year.

      Yes it is worth the visit just don't expect to see any more than what I have shown in the photos. They are in an enclosed area and you have to sit through a long explanatory talk to get to see them. It was interesting enough, and good to understand what you are looking at.

  3. I guess it's all much more vivid in CGI. Did they have replicas of the dinosaurs there, or good information boards?

    1. Yes there are information lots of information boards and not really replicas but things that give you an idea of size.

      See my response to Dianne above, there is a tour that you have to take to see the footprints.

Coolibah?

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.

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.

But then the grey clouds gather

Mostly there was sunshine but sometimes rain. The long drought is still too close a memory for us to not welcome rain even on holiday. We are still at Shellharbour here, you can see the steelworks at Port Kembla in the distance. Musing: From The Storm by Theodore Roethke "Along the sea-wall, a steady sloshing of the swell, The waves not yet high, but even, Coming closer and closer upon each other; A fine fume of rain driving in from the sea, Riddling the sand, like a wide spray of buckshot, The wind from the sea and the wind from the mountain contending, Flicking the foam from the whitecaps straight upward into the darkness."
