Eggbert was superseded by Bertie, the Billabong Caravan, and is the new bigger and better version! Geoff and Varena are still on their big trip - into their eighth year! Heading from Darwin to: Bungle Bungles, Tanami Desert, Alice Springs, Dalhousie Springs, Woomera, Lake Eyre, Nullarbor, Western Australia, Eyre Peninsular, Melbourne, Canberra, Blue Mountains, Bourke, Cameron Corner, Toowoomba, Tully, Birdsville - who knows what adventures they will have, or how long they will be on the road?

22nd April 2017
“Groundhog Day” again with the weather, so we stayed put!
did more research today, this time for the local area: National
Parks, towns, possible orchid places, beaches etc. It was another
full day of looking things up, finding which orchids grow in the
different parks, when they are likely to be flowering, & whether
they are Epiphyte, Lithophyte or Terrestrial.
are heaps of places to go. We will be busy if we want to be; weather
dependent of course.
took Bruce for a walk along the road. He barked at every dog in the
other properties, & all the cars that went by! We
all got wet on the way back....Hmmm.
A few of the various fungi I have seen around the area
HE SAID: I think it rained about every 20 minutes today. Mostly a brief shower each time, but quite a hindrance to planning an excursion.
