Out with the old, in with the new

Thursday, October 9th, 705am TODAY!!!

The sun rising in the east heralds a new day in outback Savannah land. The aftermath of last nights backburn, acrid smoke in the cool air hits the back of the throat.
It’s the best time of day, most of the town is still sleeping and the weak sun still low in the sky, not yet reached its piercing heat of day.

Worth getting out of bed for

Worth getting out of bed for

The first time I went to Hay in NSW I just couldn’t get over how flat the landscape was. Maybe the ‘Flat Earth brigade’ had a point after all? Out here I just knew that the sunrise would be something special, I was right.

It was definitely worth getting out of bed early for… Not only that, but the mattress in our hotel room was terrible!
