Outback Australia

I'm currently sitting at a caravan park in port pirie in south Australia. Our holiday so far has been as thus,
Day one
Drop Bella off at the cattery. Travel to the otherwise of Melbourne and meet up with bronwyn and dave.
Travel to remark and stay the night in the caravan park by the Murray.
 Beautiful, shady with grass and across from us a family of ducks teaching it's babies how to swim.
Day two.
Travel to the southern end of the flinders rangers. Camp in a dry river bed. Full of massive rocks.
No showers, no toilets,and very hot!
Day three stayed at the same spot, still very hot!
Day four
Travel to arkaroola. 
Camo at the caravan park. Have to drive to showers but toilets close.
It was stinking hot
Very dusty
Stinking hot
Gale force winds so much so thwt because of the dust we couldn't even see the mountains and we were on them
Stinking hot
So dry you continually had to keep drinking, there was a pool and I was so desperate that I even had a those that know me I never do that in public.
Did I mention it was stinking hot.
Day five
Decided to cut our losses and break away from the group. They were spending one more day at arkaroola then heading north to Cameron's corner
No way was I going to handle that
So hubby and I headed south back towards port augusta, as port pirie was only a little further along we decided to head there and camp for a few days 
So here I am, back to civilisation. Still hot but showers are very close and right now my washing is in the laundry and when it's finished I will hang them to dry under out quick shade.
At least now I can ring people and access the net.
Decided I'm definitely a coastal person, I don't like the outback. It's just not me.
See ya


  1. Wow! You finally admitted you are one hot chick! :) We all knew you were beautiful all along. I'm glad I stayed home. Not really. <3 But glad you had a good adventure.

  2. coastal is so much better than outback .....
