Day 15

 

Sunday 29th 
Got up for sunrise but was a bit of a sizzler. Made a cuppa and waited for the sun to appear. Got breakfast before the flies come. Still very windy and in the shade quiet cool. Sun is hot but having the wind helps . Caught up with Robert T,  met him at Lara,  now at Long Water Hole Winton. Had a good chat with him.  We all did star trails, milky way.  Photographed birds, cows and packed up what we could.

Day 68

Saturday 18th

Went into town and went to look at camping store, boy they have heaps in there. Got  to 38 deg, not nice, spent most of the day under the trees. Loved the time at the observatory and seeing the stars, galaxy, mars etc through the Telescope. Magic, I will never look at the sky in the same way again. We have heaps of Apostle birds and gave them a container of water, they don’t stop drinking and swimming in it, forever topping it up. Only night shots, was to hot during the day.
