the car that didn't make it!
This is an introduction to an adventurous artist I met in Brisbane last year. Before I really got to know Candice she had headed of on an epic tour of the continent - and being the good blogger she is ... well ... I have been able to follow her life on the road.
( this text and image is from her website!)
The shy Peacock ( I had to sneak this image in... love the colours!)
camped in ruins - far north South Australia
click on a salty death - Lake Eyre to read this fabulous post.
Of course all images at this post are from Candice's camera and blog.
'old signs along the way'
a tyre thats blown out ... on the road-side
The famous Oodnadatta Track - a dirt track through the bush Candice reports.
Cooberpedy - the opal mining town in South Australia. Read more here.
... and to the famous rocks of Central Australia
and after all that red dust...
the Hot Springs at Mataranka
and near Darwin... it might be winter there but by all accounts its steaming hot!!!
Thank you to Candice for allowing me to share these fabulous photos with everyone... If you have a moment do hop across and see the wonderful blog. A couple of months back Candy had one of those fatal nightmare moments that all bloggers live in horror of. She lost her blog's entire image bank up till that day!
OK... it wasn't the complete loss of her blog...but close enough to cause deep dismay. Life on the road being what it is ...and with 2 young children ... she knew it was not going to be easy to retrieve all those photos... so after much consternation she simply decided that on her return to Brisbane - or when help was available... she would try to get back what she had lost as it was possible... with a lot of effort.
Being the plucky person she is... after a few days she picked up her camera and was off again... and didn't you just love coming along for the ride?
Leave her a good luck message of you get to visit and say hello from me!
Happy travelling Candy!!!
