The Winnie. She likes to be noticed.

Today has been a day of surprises. No sooner do I get used to the idea of the landscape being flat and fairly uniform than it changes. We go through a range, or come across attractive lakes.

This morning was a surprise as well as there was mist.

We had a pie at a roadhouse at Pimba, then drove to Woomera. Stephen looked at the Museum whilst I had a coffee

A map of lakes in South Australia. We were at Lake Hart, which is tiny compared with Lake Eyre. Still, it looked big to us. There were lots of caravanners making this there stop for the night.

And tonight we are at Glendambo Outback Resort Caravan Park, with electricity for the first time since Adelaide. Red dirt is the main feature here. Power is not the issue really, but our water tank is getting low, so we need water for showering/washes and doing dishes. It is bore water here, of course. There are rain water tanks, but we were told the boil the water before drinking. I’m not sure when we will be able to fill up our water tank again, but we can still free camp some of the time using water jugs and buying drinking water.
