Sails in the Desert

Well, it’s been a while since I could post. We’ve been traveling and not had good WiFi connections. My last post was last Monday, the 22nd. On the 23rd we hopped on a flight to get to Ayers Rock and what they call the Red Centre of Australia. And it definitely deserves that name. Uluru is a sacred aboriginal place. It is a huge rock in the middle of the desert. Kind of like our Grand Canyon but above ground. We also hiked Kata Tjuta, another geological wonder. We stayed at a very nice resort hotel called Sails in the Desert. As you can imagine it was quite hot. We had been warned of the flies and they did not disappoint unfortunately. The good news is they do not bite. They just like your head and face and are a nuisance. We did end up using the head net my aunt gave me. Thank you Kathy. The sunrise and sunset were not as spectacular as advertised because we had clouds but the whole experience was amazing and added to my appreciation of Australia.
