"Roos are stupid! they like to hang around on the edge of the road for various reasons, then when a vehicle is almost upon them, they freeze in the headlights, then decide the other side of the road is better and hop into the path of the car. They cause many driver fatalities each year. "
Exactly like deer where I live. Deer will even run into the side of your car as you're passing by! I've hit three over the years and it is a sickening experience.
Questla, I'm really loving this post! Your adventures are fascinating to read about and photos are wonderful. Australia is a wondrous place and Australians are loads of fun to be around.
Hello Lugg...ages since we've talked. Thanks for the link to the Royal opal. Many people think opals are bad luck, and I have seen better coloured ones than HM's one. Looks like the Govt went for size over beauty.
The town of Roxby Downs had under 2000 pop when I was there...now double that. The mine had one expansion but the huge expansion that was to pave our streets in gold has been 'put on the back burner' until the global economy improves.
The money was raised by other means as well as the port, and people up there are very generous when it comes to the Flying Doctor.
As usual, I'm torn between wanting lots of tourist visiting here, and protecting it from the same tourists.
