We are now in Lockington Victoria:

Where's that?



15-5-2016 A few photos (Glenda)

The last couple of blogs gave nothing. So here are a few photos just incase you missed the interaction with color:

We're a bit conscious of height restrictions and was surprised to see this truck which was loaded high with water tanks, pull into the servo in Coober Pedy. Note, it was only about one inch from the BP awning.

While in Coober Pedy we took a long walk, a very long walk, accidently, then there were dogs - a pack chasing us. This photo is a typical view looking away from Coober Pedy:

The poles are chimneys rising out from the underground houses. We managed to escape the dogs unharmed.
We also had the chance to take an underground Mine tour (photo bombed by guy in green shirt!):

Having left Coober Pedy it is now 15-4-2016 and we were camped at Genoa.

This is a photo of Robyn having a severe talking to someone:

Lake Hart

This is a salt lake and I wanted to see if I could get a nice photo at sunset or sunrise. This was a bit of a failure but have a look at the cloud formation of a lovely bird shape. The hens are haunting Robyn.

Castlemaine

We walked the Historic Walk around Castlemaine, and were impressed by this towns historic buildings and friendliness of the locals. The photo is taken from the view from the Old Jail which is perched on one of the hills:

That's it so far - we are now in Lockington - watching Eurovision.
