We arrived at lorella at five on the 29th of June. Our friends had been camping near the homestead but had left that morning to go further out towards the coast that morning
They did leave us a letter at the homestead saying they had left and where to find them and to come out whenever we wanted. There are lots of things to do around the homestead and lots of visitors stay close for safety and sanity sake lol
We spend the night there and headed off to find our comrades in insanity!
The owner was very helpful and knew exactly where Chris and Jody had gone, this was their fifth time at lorella.
So givin a map with the route marked we set off!
It was three hours away through the bush. And as we got closer we decided to see if they had their CB on
As luck would have it. They were in the car and planning on going even further north and if we had waited even another few minutes they would of been out of range!
But we contacted them and they were so surprised to hear from us but turned around and came down the track to find us and show us the way back to their camp site
I have provided a link to the web page, hope it works, so you can see for yourselves just how beautiful and rugged the place is
Over the next few days I'll try and share my adventures.
I did push myself. And I did over do and I surprised everyone, especially me!
I was sore and I had lots of pain meds but omg what an awesome ride!
So hang on tight
Your about to get a taste of what goes on in th Aussie bush!
Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there Which seek thro' the world, is ne'er met elsewhere Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home! There's no place like home There's no place like home!
An exile from home splendor dazzles in vain Oh give me my lowly thatched cottage again The birds singing gaily that came at my call And gave me the peace of mind dearer than all Home, home, sweet, sweet home There's no place like home, there's no place like home!
We went to the camel cup today. It's a big deal here in Alice.
Lots of us from th caravan park walked there as it's only a 15-20 minutes away by foot
I spent money buying the kids a souvenir and I got Melody a stuffed camel
We saw a few races and then it got hot so hubby and I came back and we are now resting in the cool of our van
Hope you enjoy the videos. Everyone who attended were having fun. They even had camel races for the little kids. They ran using the hobbit horses only they had camel heads on them!
The two little ones in the parade who are in duck suits are there because they have a rubber duck race. All the ducks, about 200 of them, are put in th back of a cement mixer and them tipped out. The first to cross the finish line wins! Money raised goes to charity and to win you have to buy a raffle ticket and your duck number has to win
It was a lovely day and one I will remember for a long time
