So here is a overall shot of our Base Camp..... the arrow is pointing to our PKW. Yes - this shot was taken at the top of a hill (before the "mountain incident") we were climbing in the searing sun. This is the day mum almost had to call for "chopper rescue" (!!).
OOOooo here is some "Bush Kibble" left by the Kangaroos..... my mate Sasha made great comments about Outback poop.... and yes I have to tell you Sasha the emus left BIG SPLATS behind and I was not allowed to get anywhere near em'!!
Here we go for a walk within our station.... it's supposed to be an easy one to a lookout.
This is the view at the lookout spot.
The other direction.
Here is me restin' in the shadow of the peeps. Note how sparky mum still is and she had the energy to wave to you all too.
Because the walk to the lookout was pretty easy, the peeps decide to go "the long way back"..... little did they know the end of "the long way back" involved a hike up a mountain!! I've got a great shot of the mountain reserved for the final pawt of this Hollingday adventure.... wait till you see it!!
Half way up the mountain mum had to sit on a rock and rest.... I stayed with her to make sure she didn't have a heart attack while dad dad went on ahead and checked that the mountain was not one of a few mountains..... because my mum peep knew one was her limit.
I helped to pull mum up the mountain while tracking dad dad's shoes..... I felt like Bert on a search and rescue mission....sheeesh! Check out the colour of my legs and feets at the end of it all!
Luckily - we all made it back in one piece in the 38 degree (100.4F) heat.... and no chopper had to be alerted!
Then I had to suffer through a long combing session (in fact - whenever I left the PKW and patio I had to have a long combing session.... gggrrrrr!)
To get out handfuls of these burs !!!!! I hate burs - especially when they get stuck deep in ones paw pads!!
Our next adventure started in the air-conditioned car. ("yay!") See the emus in between the trees. They crossed straight in front of the car but dad dad had spotted them coming and slowed right down before we made any sleep on the side of the road!
We visited some lookouts - this one was a little windy.
Then we found this cool homestead ruin from yonkers and yonkers back in time.
The roof had gone flyin' off somewhere...
Now the house needs major fixin' up - maybe a "renovation rescue!"....BOL!
Without a roof one needs to find a little shade elsewhere!
Mum liked this stony bit between buildings
This is her tryin' to be all creative like.......
We had to cross the river bed .... lucky it was dry.... in fact it is dry most of the time out here.... buggered if I understand how the European settlers thought they could "farm" here (!?!)
Must have been hard because this homestead had it's own graveyard....... spooky no??
So stay tuned because I'm gonna post the final pawt of our Hollinday adventure in a couple of days for you.
Be good all!!
