Jan and Ian

Over land, under ground…

From Broken Hill, via Port Augusta, to Coober Pedy: two days across vast flat lands, treeless plains, majestic hills, scrubby gullies, countless outback station cattle grids and even a taste of the coast. So much variety despite the numbing distance and surprises, delights and bewilderment all the way.

Squid schnitzel, train tracks by a tranquil salt lake, table-top outcrops dotting the horizon, trucks up poles, the Chinese opal seller chasing the girls out the shop door, people running and even walking backwards in Coober Pedy despite the prominent signs warning against such folly, big trees, small flowers, long shadows, short tempers, rusted wrecks, rocket ships, octogenarian dinner companions, picnics, piercing sunlight, gently lapping water, underground churches and hotels…and more.

Two days… too many memories!
