We’re off to the Australian Outback – (Saturday)

Diamantina National Park

We’re excited, ahead of us is two weeks of soaking up the beauty of a red-ochre coloured landscape, an ancient landscape that stretches to the horizon, where it kisses a never-ending blue sky…

Sometimes it is simply impossible to capture it in a photograph, but we will be trying, and of course part of the attraction of touring the Great Southern Land is the characters you meet along the way; they are the heart and soul of the Australian Outback…

The Landy is packed full of Janet’s wine, TomO has claimed a seat in the front, Janet and Fay (me mum!)  are strapped into the back.

And don’t forget to check in over the next couple of weeks to see what we are up to.

Bearing in mind, one of the attractions of the Outback is the inability to communicate, at times.  Shoosh, that is the story I run with my boss at work, so we might be out of range every so often 😉

    I think that’s the story my Dad used to give his boss as well. Did anyone tell the government before they started in with their broadband plans?

      Oh don’t you worry, we will…!

      We’ll be looking for some wildflowers for you, there has been some rain to that way in the past few days to bring out the flora!

      Cheers, Baz 😉

    Have an amazing time! I’m jealous…..we just never get enough time to go out there anymore. Take lots of pics and show us won’t you!

    Dear Janet, Don’t give up the front seat. Don’t. Shelley who gets sick from the back!!!

      Crikey, into dangerous territory here, TomO won’t give up the front seat, so that might mean me giving up the driver’s seat for a while… (:

      But having said that, Janet loves driving (when she gets the chance) and yes, she’ll tell you, she got 100% on her driving theory, and yes 100% on the practical test, but strewth, that was how many years ago…

      Hey, take care or be careful! 😉
