Even more interesting - when we went outside, there were very few tables (maybe 6) and not a great number of chairs. The empty space between those chairs and tables and the stage was amazing! It took ages and people bringing dining chairs out before management decided to round up more suitable chairs. Guess thay will have a better idea next year if they run it again.
We had arranged to meet Bryce (from Mission Australia) there, so it may sound odd, but seeing a familiar face was a real pleasure
John exceeded all expectations at the festival - we stayed to see Wilbur Wilde and Angry Anderson - Wilbur was to come on at 11pm and Angry at 12. The program was running behind schedule all evening and Angry didn't appear until after 12.30am. We watched him for a while but weren't impressed enough to stay for his whole set. Wilbur Wilde was more entertaining. Two bands supplied most of the big noise - Cold Snap from Melbourne and The Giants - not sure where they are from and then there were several solo acts. All in all, we were glad we had the chance to go and dress up a little!
Sunday we went around to Brett & Steph's place - a real house with people we know!!! We had a lovely relaxing afternoon with frequent dips in their pool and spa. So nice!! An hour or two quickly turned into five! At least Steph's car did get its new battery fitted. It just took a while! They are planning to come out here for a visit - maybe next weekend. Those of you who follow AFL - keep your eye out for Errin Walsh-Black in the next couple of years
Alice Springs is a complex and interesting place. Most houses have high fences all around. Flower gardens are so unusual they warrant a photo!. Lots of unit blocks are behind security gates. At home the supermarkets have Parcel Pickup points. Not here - Bush Order pick ups are the go. Around the shopping centres, security have a high profile. Many of the security people here are black - African origin. Houses for aboriginal people are in small clusters with lots of netting fences.
Eventually we had to head home - sorry, 'go back out bush'. On our way, a very lean dingo was ambling along the road towards us. He wasn't too concerned that we were close at all. Guess the road is an easier path than the rocky hills. Cattle are still fat in here. So much feed around still growing from the rains amonth ago.
Check out the frog in the hand basin. How can I brush my teeth with eyes staring at me from the plughole? The flush record stands at 9 by the way!
