You have me to visit before you're old and grey!!!!!
Me and my then bf drove from Sydney to Melbourne and went through towns that seemed to be only men and ithersxthatxwhete deserted.. I loved it!!!
The country is so open it's dauntingly wonderful!!
My godmother auntie Jenny is in neutral bay and grtcaffected by those awful fires!
I am so sorry for your hubby loosing his house.
Must have been a tough time.
Wow you've seen more of Australia than me :P I have never been to Sydney or Melbourne. Hubby hadn't seen the house in a long time, he left Victoria and never looked back as he has a very conflicted relationship with his family who live down there.
LOL Liz, yes there is some country towns where there are more men then women. I have only driven between Brisbane and Sydney, But did it with my In laws so we stayed with family along the way. I live in a place known for the big floods of 2011. Fingers crossed the cyclone season up from up Wendy's way is kind to us this year (we get the rain depressions they turn into as they come down the coast.)
I used to live in Mount Isa, more men than women out there but it was very much quantity vs quality, there may have been lots of them but there wasn't much quality, i took my own when I moved out there. We were supposed to upgrade to a moderate chance of cyclone this week but I think that passed, and they were predicting it to head towards the Solomon Islands. Not sure I can do another big cyclone, Yasi was just too close for comfort, and we were affected by Larry as well, though out on the edge a bit more, but it was still like a cat 3 where I was and very scary.
I remember busting for a wee and we stopped in this town with a public loo.
I went in there while ash.. My ex popped into the small supermarket..
I open the lid to the loo and flies buzzed out... I left the loo and went to the supermarket... Most of the shelves were empty... So we decided to go to the pub.. Get lunch there and have a wee.
We walked in.. Every man stopped talking and just stared at us.. Really freaked us out... Do we left and I kept my legs crossed.
We were trying to find a campsite called cave rocks or something and we got lost and end up in a native coast village... Was amazing.. A huge wide road leading in and just a buggy in the middle of the road.
It was scary.
Finally found a camp site on the coast. At Scottish rocks and it was gorgeous!!
I would love to visit again.
Got really badly sunburnt feet though lol
Liz you just described my hugest fear of public toilets!!
Well I am finally off to a fresh start again with AF finding me. FINALLY.
I live in Far North QLD, frgs in toilets are my concern, I do a flush before using any public toilet and make sure no legs dangle down. I can do a whole scan for frogs in under 20 seconds
Sorry about af.
I am waiting for her too.
Mo I am not... Just wiped she's here early again :( hey ho!!
Sorry about af for you both, may she stay away this month for us all.
Yup frogs, google them because I can't stand them because they freak me out. If you google green tree frog you will see what they are. Nasty little creatures
My Great Aunty had them all her house when I was younger... They are not so cute and adorable when they jump on you in the middle of the night.
We don't seem to get too many here thank fully (I think it is because we have a cat and chooks.) we have cute little gecko's instead.
