We drive through Horrocks pass to the Spencer Gulf. The south Flinders colours are just beautiful. The Heysen (the famous painter of the Flinders) hicking track covers 1,200 km.

We stop for coffee break at Quorn. Looks just like a town in the Karoo. Colesberg?
The same architecture of 1800s - pepper trees, hotel, station. Tin roofs and outside the town - vast expanses of dry country - salt bushes and always on the horizon, the Flinders.

At Kanyaka homestead - ruins of homestead from1850 - 1880. The graveyard interesting. Mostly children or people who died around their late fourties. (we would have been VERY old)!

Lunch at Quorn at a local cafe. We drive towards the Northern Flinders. This is Hans Heysen country. We have to stop every now and then as I compare the scenery with his landscape paintings - thanks to a birthday present from my mother.

Today - 32 years ago Walter and said "I do". We celebrate tonight at Rawnsley Park Station.
