Coober Pedy

Coober Pedy is an amazing place. It's dry, dusty and feels like how I imagine an American Old West town would feel. It felt 'frontier' and on the edge of civilisation. And while there were structures and homes above ground - anywhere you could see a ventilation pipe sticking out of the ground you knew someone lived underneath.
The underground church. Acoustics were great and a nice temperature.
I especially like the lectern.
This is a private residence opened for us to see. It costs $5 per person and was well worth it. It was built by a woman and her two girlfriends in the 1960's. Faye certainly sounds like a very interesting woman.
I have only a few more photos to sort through and will post them when I'm organised.
In the meantime I hope to generate something quilty!
