This little critter, a sleepy lizard, kept us company at breakfast
next morning. This photo was going to be no.4 but refused to be
moved to its proper place . . . ah, the joy of computers . . .
Up beyond the green, green farm lands the country dries off
showing up the red soil and and half a dozen emus.
The open road and the first suggestion of the Flinders Ranges
in the distance.
We arrive in Hawker for our first stop at this charming cottage
owned by our friends and almost neighbours who flew up with
their three dogs solely to cook dinner for us and bed us down in
luxurious comfort for the night.
Now that is friendship for you!!
One of them actually enjoys flying and attentively looks out
the window all the way.
Thanks as always for sharing your great trips, Arija! This one does look like fun! Can't wait to see more! Enjoy your evening!ReplyDelete
I'm loving this magic carpet ride. Adorable cottage and wonderful friends.ReplyDelete

This looks like it was a very nice stay for you and the beauty of the scene out the breakfast window is so beautiful. Looking forward to other post entries. Take good care Arija~ReplyDelete
You do have the most amazing array of wildlife your way.ReplyDelete
maybe one shouldn't move a sleeping lizard?ReplyDelete
1200 photos! Oh my, your photos are wondrous and beautiful. It's so hard to capture the majesty of open country, but you have managed just that.ReplyDelete
I just saw a little blurb on TV about "Slow Cities" and "Slow Tours", meaning travel to places where time seems to barely move and progress happens at a snail's pace. Your vacation reminds me of that. I feel like slowing down and taking everything in.
So good to see you back! I've missed you.
oh, incidentally, not to offend the sleepy lizard but he looks quite like a dried up corn on the cob. :)
What wonderful friends you have to start you off so well on your adventure.ReplyDelete
