After reluctantly leaving Maralinga, we have had a wonderful drive west along Oak Valley Road.
The bush and flowers are fresh from the rain. The bush is noticeably green compared with drier years when they appeared dry and lifeless. All four of us are interested in the trees and flowers...hopefully we can identify some of the new varieties. I have chosen some leaves for use in fabric dyeing when I have returned home.
Six young boys met us at the corner into the Oak Valley settlement. They were lively and wild and really wanted a ride in our vehicles and even asked to come with us.
Tonight we are camped amongst the bush of this wonderful desert area.
