A mix of photos
I was in Adelaide yesterday doing an embroidery class with Alison Cole, a great class although I have used most of the stuff she uses but unfortunately I had to be up early to do feeds and the traffic to Adelaide was slow so I arrived feeling a bit brain dead. I am supposed to go back on Monday but I will see as next week is very busy.
These are probably the last of my northern photos, vegetation on a dune on the way to William Creek, part of a rocket from the Woomera range that dropped down somewhere near there as well, the sign about the old Ghan railway which has been superseeded by a different route and a new and modern and very expensive train through the centre.
Finally one of the old drays, at various times I think they used horses, cattle and even possibly camels to pull these huge things, must have been a nightmare when it rained and almost worse if you had to cross a sandhill.
All of the last three are in a small reserve, along with a few graves at William Creek.
the last is a bit of a view of Anna Creek station homestead area, I think this looks more like the workshops, we went through in the bus.
I have just finished reading a fascinating book called Red Sand, Green Heart by John Read who was an ecologist in the 1990's with Olympic Dam.
