Sun is shining, rain gone. Look at BOM guess where the storm went – Boyne Island. Yaheee – save you watering Marj.

Ollie busy cleaning grills to fridge. No blockage – guess the heat 36degrees didn’t help the fridge.

Helen & Roger – thank you – croissants with home grown strawberry jam

OOops – forgot to turn oven off before storing plastic funnel, measuring cups and spoons. Interesting shapes!!!!g

Roma has to be the Bottle Tree capital. They are everywhere. There is a street with 140 commemorating those lost in WW1.

mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. Well at 3pm we thought it a good idea to do 9 holes of golf in 36 degrees. Interesting!!! Fairways were non existent but tee offs and greens were like velvet!!

Take off for Lightning Ridge. Stop off at St George to see Unique Emu Eggsimage image

the above are just a small selection of the emu eggs carved by Stavros. Just beautiful. If for no other reason you have to visit St George to see these.the colours come from the multiple layers of the egg. Nothing artificial apart from the lights

On the way we met another gang of Drovers. This time Ollie took the photos!image image

Just a small selection of the cattle. It took us 3/4 hour to get past them

8th Nov

Busy day at Lightning Ridge. You have to visit. We started with a 41 degree bath in the Artesian pools. Went to Chambers of the Black Hand – 60 feet walk underground. Brunch at a great coffee shop.Then a visit to Bevan’s Garden. Followed by a drive around town following the red, yellow and blue car doors – what an experience. You have to see it – put it on your bucket list.

the following is a pictorial record of our day

Just awe inspiring. Our chess set is minuscule compared to this.

Bevans Garden

50 years in the making. All cacti. Just a couple of the many photos we tookimageimage

Now part of our car door trip. Innovative, weird, spectacular and very different. You have to be different to live here. Love it.imageimageimage

The above is a typical garden here.

For a hundred years or so people have been making tunnels here and leaving the waste on top giving a kind of moonscape. Must be nearly hollow under Lightning Ridge.

Has anyone any idea what we used the pliers for?
