Emus in the outback
Last week I was up at Andamooka for a few days.
Took my son to noodle for opals.
On the way up, it rained for 60 seconds just south of Pimba.
15km from Andamooka we slowed because of a mob of emus beside the road. Dad emu was going walkabout with 10 large chicks (20-30cm high).
And then, the serenity of the outback was shattered.
There in front of us, on a sign warning of kangaroos was an election poster.
I was devastated. I had gone bush to escape city life and take a break and unwind after the recent Council election. There was no mobile phone connection, very few amenities and yet on a sign post on a hot wind swept plain was an election poster.
I took a photo and headed for town and a cold beer.
