red dust and sheep
Late yesterday afternoon after a torturous drive with a screeching teething toddler who decided no longer to have a sleep on the 6 hour drive, with a final stretch being 149km of weathered dirt track, we arrived at our farmstay in Nimagee. A sheep and cattle farm owned by very hospitable for Anita and Ken. What great hosts they are. Our hut is pretty basic but all things are catered for. We are having meals in the main homestead. It is so beautiful and serene. I love the feeling of peeling back the layers and feeling my true self.

Che has been in his element. Digging up the dirt. Chasing the sheep. Moo-ing at the cows. Dan dog has had his swim in the dam. Chester dog loves barking at the farm animals. Everyone is pretty blissed.
Lots of great farm bit and pieces to keep the little one captivated for hours. The sun has been glorious all day. We are covered in red dust. I have been wearing the same clothes all this trip. A big wash is in order when we arrive in Broken Hill. Now the sun is just going down over the hill and there is a chill just starting to descend on us. We are just now repacking the car for an early start tomorrow and then a quick wash and we will then walk up to the house for another great country home cooked meal.
I hope the little man will sleep a bit on this last leg of our journey. Cross fingers.
It has been a great day. Hope yours was just as happy.
