The life and travels of the Kemp Family

Big Day at Big Red

The thing to do in Birdsville , other than supporting the pub , is to take a drive out to BIG RED, apparently the largest sand dune in the Simpson Desert , this was our mission today ,and I’m pleased to say it was achieved by all . BIG RED is 35kms out of town , there are over 1000 sand dunes out there , we traversed the first two.
We collected firewood on the way back , and the campfire is now lit , Dinner tonight is Roasted Chickens and vegetables in the camp ovens .As i write this I’m enjoying a cold gin and tonic with a harassment of flies diving into the Gin .
Must be some happy flies out there .

Todays pictures are Tony in his new hat by the camp , and a couple of Big Red Shots .

    The landscape looks stunning and what lovely clear skies – unlike Sydney which has been very gloomy, foggy and overcast today.

    Jess is great – enjoying her food as per usual. She has settled in with Frank, Pixie-Dust and Molly (a new rescue).

    Despite the cold weather at night, she still likes to sit on the deck with Pixie-Dust and keep an eye on those pesky possums.
