After a few months of prep and the last few days of anxious timeisrunningout last minute ideas and packing, we were finally ready to hit the road today. And hit it we did, driving for six hours in windy, dusty, beautiful, colorful countryside. The kids were plugged in to idevices ( in flight entertainment) a lot of the time but we did manage some silly song singing and alphabet games. We saw kangaroos, emus and lots of birds as well as tonnes of babies - lambs and calves everywhere!
We stopped twice , once for Arutha to pee behind a cattle grid (?) where we were sprung by the lady of the manor who proceeded to tell us all about her business selling bras and undies.... The other time to check out the 'salt' on a dried up river bed....only it wasn't salt. Any geologists know what it is???
Anyway, we are here now in windy Dubbo, the camper trailer is set up and our bellies are full. Arutha and the kids are playing chess and cards and after a long, hot shower my yummy bed is calling to me.... And I'm going to start the Hunger Games at last! Tomorrow, we go on safari....
