Travels

A few pictures from my travels to Bonnievale and Namibia over Christmas and New Year.

The Road just outside Bonnievale is lined with Kanna Lilies and roses

Yes, the road between the border and the nearest town (150 km) is this straight for most of it. You have to be careful not to miss the slight bends.

On the way back, a beautiful sunrise that this picture does not do any justice. Please note the puddles after a really good spell of rain in the foreground.

Rain spiders - yes, they are this bright in colour. They only appear after the rain and are quite fuzzy.

rain spiders are not nearly as pretty! They boring grey, huge & slightly less furry. I like the red ones, they look cudly, almost like the pompom toys I had as a kid. I wonder what happened to those.

Yes, Catherine. I hear you , they are quite fuzzy, but I'm not so sure about the "cuddly" part :)
