Some places we've been and some places we're going.

Day 15 Alice Springs

It was another cold night!

We took advantage of the laundry at the Caravan Park before going into the town centre to restock, naturally that meant a couple of trips to Bunnings. As I waited in a carpark when Alex was shopping I registered some of the different ethnic groups who either call Alice home or were visiting. It was a real surprise to see a man in traditional long white tunic, white pants and kepi, young girls with their thick, black hair in braids and a woman in beautifully bright flowing robes and turban-like head covering. I was in search of a boring, warm jumper! We the “Daily Special” of coffee and sandwich at a cafe with nice outdoor tables, there was even a dog bed provided…daggy though.

To reach our campground we have to pass through Heavitree Gap, a pass through the Macdonnell Ranges.

In the afternoon Fergus met up with Daisy again.

Our neighbours tonight were our neighbours at Kulgera, I wonder what the odds of that are considering the number of sites in the Parks.

Tomorrow we’re moving on to Gem Tree, we’ve fossicked for Garnets there before, it will be interesting to see how the place has changed.

  1. We will never forget our third night at Uluru in our Pete’s tent. Only unpowered sites available. It was okay the first two nights as it had rained. On the third night we nearly froze. My hands had great difficulty separating the plastic breakfast bowls and John’s hands were bleeding trying to roll up a wet tent. We traveled straight to CooberPedy and booked into an underground Motel which was blissfully 24 degrees constantly. Also decided to stop overnight at Port Augusta in a motel as we would have arrived hme very late otherwise.
    Loved Fergus’ playmate.

  2. Fergus and Daisy are getting to be a couple!
    Hope you get yourself a snuggly jumper.

  3. If you are cold, it has been frosts here. While Fergie is having dates with Daisy, Bella is dividing her love between Janine and Warren . Garnet hunting sounds like lots of fun. Stay safe and healthy. Love from Rufus
