18 Days On..............

......and incredibly the fires are STILL burning in Victoria, with an expectation that things will flare up again badly on Friday.
All those poor firefighters (most of them volunteer firefighters) must be utterly exhausted.
It's hard to believe that half of Queensland is under water at the moment.

Anyway, here's a photo of ...... well, I'm not exactly sure.
Probably some sort of hay carrier - he was zooming along a side road
with the wind in his hair having a lovely time.

  1. This is a magnificent vista! Such wide open spaces. But that's horrible news about the fires still raging and the flood waters still not receding. I really hope that things turn around soon :(

  2. There is a really good story in The Australian this morning about the flood-waters reaching Lake Eyre.

  3. It is looking pretty dry out there...

  4. Hi Letitia!
    Sorry I couldn’t visit you for the last two weeks! I’m trying to catch-up and hope things have already cooled off down there!
    Meanwhile, one of the most beautiful Forts in India waits you and your comments at Blogtrotter: – The Amber Fort! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

  5. Hello Hilda,
    Yes, we certainly do have miles and miles of those wide open spaces!
    Very good for the soul.

  6. Julie - finally got there!!
    But they don't have any photos!!

  7. Thanks Jayne.
    Would you like a ride on one??

  8. Hi Gil - Yes hallelujah - it is cooling down at last!
