Packing the car at dawn at the motel in Coolgardie
after our first night away.
WE ARE HEADING OUT...looking at some corners of Australia after we endured a series of health issues for more than six months. Now that things are looking up, we are off to explore...
Glowing gold-burnished Eucalypt trees near Norseman
Lake Cowan -- mostly dry and salt...
At Eyre, looking at the great Southern Ocean. It was cold and windy!
Bunda Cliffs, Head of the Great Australian Bight, where the female Right Whales come in from the Antarctic to give birth once every 3 years or so...
(And before you ask, they are called Right Whales because they were considered the "right" whales to hunt because they swam slowly and floated when killed. As a consequence they were once hunted to the edge of extinction)
|And if you look carefully you will see the female Right Whale centre right. Ok, so it looked better through binoculars!!|
