There was another lovely sunrise this morning after a very cold night, I’m glad we have power so we can use a heater in the mornings.
The stand-out from today was the Painted Desert. I thought it would be hard pressed to rival the colours of the Ochre Pits at Lyndhurst but it excelled. Unfortunately photos don’t do the place justice, it was stupendous. Not only the colours in the hills but what seemed to be flood plain had an amazing mix of colours. Just awe inspiring. They say the time to see the place is sunrise or sunset but that wasn’t an option for us, we don’t want to risk hitting a kangaroo, emu or cattle. It didn’t matter, the colours were already magic.
The signs made by the late Adam Plate of the Pink Roadhouse certainly add to the enjoyment of places. We’d miss many things if not for his signs. He was actually killed in a classic car rally not far from our home so I feel a connection with him. Thanks Adam.
Unfortunately I think he’s left a big gap in Oodnadatta, certainly the facilities at the caravan park desperately need maintenance.
We had a nice meal at the Transcontinental Hotel and enjoyed the atmosphere very much. The hosts go out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome.

Where next for the grey nomads
Fantastic nature…it looks a lot like Namibia!
Have you posted photos of Namibia? I’d like to see some.
I did a whole series that I called “Op eensame geheime paaie”. You can just look it up by writing it in at the top of my blog in the search area. It is written in Afrikaans, but you need not understand the language to enjoy the photo’s! I give you a link to the one blog that really reminded me of the area that you visited. Op eensame geheime paaie deel 5
It seems the link didn’t work. I suggest you just type it into the search area at the top of my blog. I am still looking for time to read all your adventures…this weekend definitely!
I managed to make a link. https://perdebytjie.wordpress.com/2016/02/12/op-eensame-geheime-paaie-deel-5/
Another link that you will enjoy. https://perdebytjie.wordpress.com/2016/03/03/woestynreus-van-die-huab/
Thanks for giving me the link. The elephant was amazing and you’re right, Namibia is very like parts of Australia.
Thanks for visiting there!
