Outback Onion Chopper
Latest series of 8ight images and this weeks theme…
The Spirit of Australia – One of 8ight
So another soggy 8ight days begin. This weeks theme is ‘The Sprit of Australia.’
I won’t win many city friends for saying this but whilst the folk of Adelaide and Sydney have been moaning about extreme temperatures, power cuts and the lack of air conditioning! Up here in the outback the locals just get on with it. Apart from when my internet service is cut and we have no sanitation that is!
So the raging river has washed away the bridge. The water has risen yet again. Vital supply lines have been cut. Will the pub have no beer?
No worries! Everyone chips in and unloads the food trucks, puts the supplies on the helicopter and away it goes. Up, up over the swollen river to meet the needy locals on the other side where once again the bags of onions, milk, bread , meat is loaded back on to more trucks.
The shelves are full again, everyone is happy. Except I still can’t use the toilet. But I have beer and a bucket!
