Odds and Ends and Weekends


So, this weekend has gone fast. As usual. I have a couple pictures left over from Thursday. This is a cabin, or the remains of a cabin, we found on our little adventure. It is about 100 meters from a corner that led up that last big hill. Lok at the thick walls! Must have been cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The roof may not have helped much, as it seemed to be mostly tin...nevertheless, it was a neat little building. I admired the view...see the sand dunes across the river in the photo above? The Gorge at George is just a bit north.
Here is a portrait of me, pleased to be out of the bush. I can't imagine what it would be like in Australia...I'd probably end up goanna food.
Today, I mowed the lawn and did some small odd-jobs around the house. It's looking better on the outside than on then inside...guess we'd better concentrate on that next.
To end the day I made Cora this gem:
Appletini with frozen watermelon chunks and lemon peels. She liked it...I think it was prettier than it tasted.
I work maintenance tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

That is a pretty drink. You'd probably pay 10 bucks for it in a restaurant. I always like your pictures and your adventures.

I dont think the goannas would worry you too much as they are scared of humans but the dingo's are not nice and the kangaroos might kick you to death but would not eat you. Now if you were in the top end you might get eaten by a croc.

If you really get lost in the outback they might just find you in your truck having died from the heat as it can get to +60 celcius out there during the day.

All I have to say is that was a great way to end the weekend.
