Stopover and sightseeing tour CooberPedy .
Alan and I found it very interesting, I hope you all enjoy my photo's
On site Coober Pedy Caravan Park.
As its very dry here, and water is a precious commodity, you need to carry enough water to accommodate your needs, plus a little more !! Just to explain a little further, to take a shower at the caravan park it costs 40cents for a 3 minute shower, barely enough time to wash the dust from the body and the shampoo from the hair !!

The interior of the Greek Orthodox Church. Once again the picture does not show the beautiful colors of the walls and lead glass, If you look closely, you can see the sculptured ceilings.
Exterior of an underground home. One of many we walked through.
See previous post for the interior.
Coober Pedy Golf Course.
This is a picture of one of the "greens". Not a blade of Grass to be seen.
For anyone reading this that doesn't know about "Sand scrape Greens" they are pretty small and consist of sand with a fair amount of sump oil mixed into it.The multi reasons for this are, to stop the sand blowing away, to give a clear difference in colour to the sand that surronds them, and to enable a smooth line to be raked from ball to hole, all you need do then is try to gauge the pace of the green... Slow to Bloody Slow is about it.
Thanks Peter, Alan would have known that, but me, alas, had no idea!!
