Today we drove across the Hay plains. In heat that was unspeakable.
What can I say then about it other than this:
The temperature recorded on the car thermometer! At 6pm!
They make the days hot round here, and the ground flat. And the soil went from red to gold, to desert sand.
It is strange to already be so far from where I woke up this morning. But Mildura is beautiful. The people are country, and lovely.
The food is divine. And the cottage we are staying in I think I may never want to leave! But the road is only a few hours away for us, so now I must sleep.
Tomorrow we cross the border into South Australia, where I was born...
