SUNDAY 27 JUNE     ALICE SPRINGS

Another chilly day. I have concluded that I do not like “winter” in Alice Springs! That cold wind is so penetrating and the nights are freezing.

In the morning, John decided that he wanted to drive out to the airport and watch planes. We did this, going south from here, through a gap in another low range. But watched planes from a distance, parked beside the road to the airport, as one had to pay to enter the carpark and thus access the terminal building.

Grevillea. Its narrow leaves are an adaptation to the arid environment

After lunch, we went to bowls. Just an ordinary game and time.

It is the Victorian school holidays now and the volume of tourists in these parts has noticeably increased.

Tea was cold roast beef with potato and a couple of vegies.
