After arriving, wot?

So now we have rested, had a big bacon and egg breakfast, we start the day with a little demo by me at the Mungo Lodge.... I thought a quick watercolour of some the country we had just driven through the day before.... then the lovely and talented Jane Tonks took those that were willing, for a wander through the bushes to look at the area close up, find the local critters and take note of colour and form.....

The scrubby country is alive with colour but you can get lost very quickly if you're not paying attention. There were a lot of strange things to see and a few curious faces.....



The real highlight came that afternoon when 22 of us loaded into the bus and headed out with our guide, Mick for a walk on the dunes in the sunset. No trip to Mungo should go without this wonderful addition to the journey for the knowledge of the history and the finds amongst the dunes can only be found with a guide. It is also not allowed to walk in the dunes without a guide as the area is protected from wandering around willy nilly. The dunes are so fragile that they need to be protected..... so here's a few pics of that afternoon walk....

It has taken me a few days to settle down after being back out there in that place.... I love it immensely and it was good to go back. No-one can describe the feeling, you just have to go and sit and be in peace!
