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

Roma has to be the Bottle Tree capital. They are everywhere. There is a street with 140 commemorating those lost in WW1.
this is a 3D mural about the area
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!!
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
Just a small selection of the cattle. It took us 3/4 hour to get past them
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
All carved in Sandstone 60 foot down under the earth
Just awe inspiring. Our chess set is minuscule compared to this.
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?
