It's raining on the rock!

Hi there, you know the John Williamson song, "It's raining on the rock" well, it's all true. 3 states, over 2000 kilometres to experience Uluru and would you believe it's raining? No sunset, no sunrise just rain and cloud. Anyway, more about that later.

Day one, Thursday 1st July, 2010- Take off!

Here we are all packed up about to leave.
"Bye, see you in 3 months"


This is the view out the window, 10 mins out of town, thick heavy fog that didn't lift until lunch and yes, stuck behind a caravan!



Yay, we've made it to the South Australian border and we are all still talking!



See these here pristine white runners. Let's see how they hold up shall we?

That's about it for day one. Driving, driving and more driving. Mostly through familiar territory until Adelaide. Then it was too dark to see anything anyway.

5 very tired Moerks went to bed in a motel in Port Augusta.

  11. Hi folks, finally opened the right blog!! E is at the court ladies' morning coffee, I have just returned from walking Lulu and washing your cleaning cloths. Lulu is well settled and all well at home. Shame about the "motel" room @ CP and the rain at Uluru (even colder than here) but great that you have had a safe start. Continue to enjoy. Love you from both of us.
