We just got back from two nights in the Flinders Ranges- Wilpena Pound. We are dusty and tired but it was worth it. The landscape out there is so beautiful especially the colours of the dust and the desert plants and the sky. Last night we went on a 'stroll' which turned into a 3 hour 8km walk and up a hill to a lookout within the Pound. Despite G complaining through all of the flat bits she responded like a mountain goat daintily picking her steps up the mountain whilst I dragged behind, feet like bricks, hating it and loathing S for forcing us (!). The view was pretty amazing and I have forgotten the hard bits.
We saw emus and kangaroos and lizards and galahs and sulphur crested cockatoos and Australian wild hibiscus which open up towards the end of the day. It went slightly pear shaped when G vomited up the piece of kangaroo S gave her from his plate at the park's restaurant but S thought it tasted pretty good.
I don't feel rested at all after being away (who does with a 3 year old on tour?); but I do feel re-inspired and filthy lucky and enriched from the trip. I'm also busting to get to the studio with Carly and take a look at our new colours. But where is Carly? cooooeeee
