You Know You’re In the Outback….

…when you’re competing with the birds for your breakfast – and they’re not Mynahs…

The bird regarded the girl and the girl regarded the bird...

…when you find yourself at a circus (of the cockatoo kind) watching 70 year old birds riding bicycles on a high wire!

"Tuppence" aged 73 approx.

and rather than pesky ibises - it's brolgas patrolling the campground!

…when the country pub – meeting place and watering hole – takes centre stage.

Barcaldine - population 1500 approx - 3 of the 5 pubs on the main road.

…when the road before you stretches on to the horizon – and few others pass you by…

on it goes..

..and your kids want bush hats to look the part – and wear them every day!

Streuth! Now that's a hat!

And here's a local.

You know you’re outback then.

    We are loving hearing about all your adventures and the pictures are great. It rained all week here last week so we are very envious of those beautiful blue skies! We all love your hat Eleanor and don’t worry about your spider we have it safe to give to you on your return. We started Tennis today and have just started learning our dance for our assembly item in two weeks time. We are dancing to the Kung Fu Panda theme song. We will let you know how it goes.We miss you heaps but look forward to lots more news over the next 5 months. from 2S xxx
