For those of you who have never lived in the outback ( I too was once in that club), I will show some piccies of my scenery...It's not the prettiest town, but the people are nice and friendly. I think it's because there are limited numbers in the population out here, so you make friends with anyone. When you go into Woolworths (and yes, we have a Woolies AND a Foodworks), you will have half the shop saying 'hello' as you pass by. That just doesn't happen in the city (ever). The city lifestyle is busy, we are always in such a hurry to get from A-B. But out here, there is no sense of urgency. We have all the time in the world...
The town centre
Chinaman Dam - our beach?
So there you have it...a part of me really misses the tall buildings, the bridges, the shops..but I must say that it is nice having some time out from the busyness and making my own fun from what is around me. I think I will be a much better person from my time out here...more self-satisfying and creative.
So, will this be your next holiday destination? (haha) Cloncurry - from where you'd rather be! :)
