I'm back!

We arrived back this afternoon, having driven for 1150kms over the last 2 days. I can honestly say that all was good until the last 200kms. I had to work really hard from the front seat to keep the kids happy and in stock of food. Ever 15mins at least one child would say "I'm hungry", even the just 2 year old was saying it! But we are home, having had a great holiday, lots of great memories, oodles of photos and me loving the feel of carpet underneath my feet, with the lack of red dust and sand making me a happy girl. Camping is fun, but the end is always good.

Pete cracked a bottle of Veuve tonight and cooked a great roast chook to mark our return home. It's good to be home!

I will post some holiday snaps in the days to come but here are a few of the spectacular gorges we saw at Karinjini. These are made all the more spectacular when you read about how they came to be - something along the lines of.......... billions of years ago when the earth was covered in blue green algae , volcanic eruptions ripped the land apart forming the gorges that stand today. Check these out.
