Nullarbor Trees

One of the most interesting things about the Nullarbor is the the trees. Yes, trees. There are lots of them. Sure, they aren't very tall, but they are still trees.

And so, people have felt the need to decorate them, make them stand out and look a bit better if they're dead. We saw so many trees covered in the strangest things; bottles, bra's, shoes, clothing of all kinds, cups, you name it, it was there.

Well, we couldn't miss our chance to add to it. We just happened to be carrying some large, colourful plastic hearts with us. They were intended for another project, but this seemed too perfect. On our way home as we stopped for lunch we decorated this tree.

You may also notice that Morgan is holding more than just our baby. It's his Dad's Bugle. He can almost play it now, but lets just say that it was a good thing there was no one else around to annoy while he was learning.

Have you missed me? Seems that even though our trip to WA ended nearly a month ago I haven't really got back up to speed with everything.

So this is just a quick post to share a few stories and a few photo's and hopefully I will back at things again soon.
lunch break

the service at Norseman was exceptional!
Most of all we were amazed by the lush-ness of the Nullabor plain. The variety and abundance of plant life (and the height, there were trees!) was beautiful. I look forward to doing this drive again some time and taking the time to enjoy it more.
