We are hitting the road and heading outback again. This time we are going far, far west to look at Lake Eyre while it has water in it. Referred to as our great inland sea you can read more about Lake Eyre – HERE.
It is sure to be an amazing sight. We are doing a small flight over the lake to view it from the air and see where all the rivers flow into it. I am very excited !!!! Of course half the fun of it will be the journey to and from. There will be a bit of bush camping to be done too. This time I am okay with it.
This shows you how far we are travelling, but we are not going this way – we are going more direct west. I just couldn’t get google maps to change for me. We are travelling the Strzelecki track from Innamincka. The track is through desert country and quite isolated, so one has to inform the police or locals at Innamincka before embarking, and contact them once you have arrived at your destination. It is going to be quite an adventure.
At home, the blooms are slowly starting to appear. Our star jasmine is resisting flowering – must be due to the coolish weather we have had this spring. Usually it is in full glorious bloom by now.
However here is what is around the garden.
Bouganvillea – colour chosen by my hubby – good choice.
Our mandarine tree has been loaded with fruit this year – very sweet
Yellow rose in full bloom.
Grevilleas have loved the rain and the cooler weather. Colours are deep and beautiful.
This ugly cactus has the most beautiful flower. Hope it is flowering when we get home.
There may be a little internet connection here and there on the trip, but for the most part we will be technology free.
