Thirsty Kangaroo.

IMG_1807

This image was taken a couple of weeks ago, the poor skinny roo drinks from the water hole that is slowly drying up. The animals in the area are all so weak and skinny, the sheep and cattle are just bags of bones foraging on leaves and dead grass, the emus and roo’s are weak and slow and  dying where they lay. The dingos,wild cats and eagles are thriving on the weak and fragile livestock that remain.

Last night we had a storm and this morning the rain looks like its set in for a few days. oh I hope so. This will bring great relief to the farmers, animals and this harsh environment.

We went for a drive 57 klm west of Eromanga and checked out this old rock and tin home that has been abandoned and flooded at some stage.This was taken looking from the inside looking out through a  broken old window. We were hoping we didn’t come across any snakes when we entered.

There was lots of old cracked mud, birds nests some dead birds and a lot of character. close by is a creek and a set of cattle yards. with a lot of hard work it could be done up to a very unique house.

have a great day Callie

Opals

IMG_1509

This image was taken at a church in Quilpie where the alter is covered in opals.The surrounding area out here has  lots of opals and some private opal mines.I found one here the other day after I had the sprinkler going, not a great opal but nice enough.The internet is still not great but the last 2 images only took 1 hour to upload. I would like to apologise to all the people I follow that I have been able to view any of your posts and I cant read anything you have written on mine or reply. Sorry about this but Id be here all day trying, the next upgrade for the internet is in 2015 and I definitely wont be here that long.
