The Little Holiday and Blog Break

My DH and I are taking a little holiday in July so have decided to settle down the blog for a break. We are doing a winter tour of Australia's great Outback.

We will leave Perth and head east to Kalgoorlie. Then north through Leonora and Laverton and then east across the Great Central Road to Yulara and Uluru. Then northeast through the McDonnell Ranges to Alice Springs. Then south to Coober Pedy and then south and west through the Lake Everard district to Ceduna. Then west across the Nullarbor to Norseman and Coolgardie then home to Perth.

Three delightful weeks of amazing landscapes and starscapes. Yes, it will be cold. But the days will be beautiful and we have warm clothing and bedding. We will have a few nights at caravan parks and also a few nights bush camping.

To give my US friends an idea of the distances, here is Australia's land mass compared to the US.

DD #2 will house sit while we have this most excellent adventure. She's promised to keep the parties to a minimum.

Hope is your next little while is good. I hope to have a few reasonable photos and will share upon my return.

Wow! Looks like you had an amazing trip (just looked at all your pics). We were in eastern Australia in 1987 and realized how far it was when we decided to drive from Sydney to Carnes! :) Lovely country!
