After the long, dusty road we stayed overnight at Norseman
before setting off next morning to cross the Nullarbor
where we saw some amazing "trees"
with some fantastic "foliage" These trees are known as Nullarbor Trees, and it's interesting to see the things that people leave on them. One was covered in plastic drink bottles, and glistened beautifully in the sun.
Once across the Nullarbor, we stayed the night at a place called Nullarbor, again setting off early the next morning. We stopped for lunch at Ceduna and the kids went off for a swim only to find that there was broken glass everywhere. This didn't seem to bother the local Aboriginal folk who were happily splashing away in the water.
After a short sojourne here we were off again and that night stopped at Kimba. We next stopped for a break at another "beachy" area at Port Augusta.
This time the water was safe for swimming. Not too long and we were off again, stopping that night at Glendambo.
That turned out to be the worst night of the trip. It was very hot, and not a bit of breeze. It didn't cool down till around 0530, and we were placed next to large lamps which were not only very bright, but put out a lot of heat. The tent was like a sauna and I awoke the next morning dehydrated, with a migraine and feeling very sorry for myself.
You can see the lamp behind us in this photo.
Thankfully it was only a couple of hours to our next port of call, Coober Pedy, where we booked into an underground motel and I very thankfully took myself off to a lovely, cool and very dark room for a couple of hours till I was feeling better.
and inside Natalie's rooms.
That night all the adults except Natalie's husband (who stayed home with the kids) went to an underground pub, where some of the adults played at the worlds only underground pokies. We stayed 2 nights at Coober Pedy, and then headed for Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock. As this is already very heavy with photo's, I will leave the rest for next time.
Take care everyone, and happy knitting.
