Tune in Tomorrow...

Yes, watch this space.

About eight years ago Mum, Harold and I went up to the Northern Territory, a place we'd always wanted to visit. I feel in love with the place and at one stage, actually contemplated going up there to work. However, it's a long way from anywhere...it was a four hour flight from Brisbane to Darwin and I couldn't have gone for months on end without seeing my family. Yes, I know, I'm a sook!

However, be that as it may. I kept a travel journal and each night I put down what we'd done, what we'd seen and learnt and the kilometres travelled. I have finally had the photos collated to disc and they are now stored on the computer. Once I sort out what photos go where, I will put it on my blog...a day at a time...don't worry, I don't expect you to do a marathon reading in one hit (it'd probably cause Blogger to implode...lol!).

I hope you enjoy our journey, the sights we saw and the characters we meet.

Update on the rain...it's stopped for the present. But there are flood warnings out, especially up on the Sunshine Coast. Rivers have broken their banks, the SES has been out in force helping evacuate people and rescuing others. In others words, mayhem and chaos...we haven't had anything like it for years. Even the people being rescued are pretty light-hearted (once they're safe and dry), and have nothing but praise for the SES (State Emergency Services) volunteers.

Hopefully, there will be more next week, according to the extended weather forecast. I'm a great fan of the Bureau of Meteorology's website and have it up in my favourites list. Because it's been so dry, I haven't bothered too much about looking for rain...because there wasn't any. However, this last week the BOM site has been getting a real hammering from people looking at all the rain falls.

Until tomorrow...keep well and those in SE Queensland, enjoy the wet weather.

I love the NT and worked at Uluru at the Resort many years ago. It was actually where I met my husband.

I can't wait for those photos. I'm glad everyone is glad about the rain even if they are flooded out. I think.
