Great Photos!! That is one of the many great things of blogging, one gets to see some beautiful areas of the world from the comfort of our computer screen! I love outdoor pictures....Thanks for sharing them and THANKS for stopping by. I am trying to upload a picture of a Ferris Wheel, and as of this morning, it still won't go....not sure why :(

But, I will try this evening....I even tried a different picture and that will not upload either...so I will be a good blogger and wait!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

More great pictures. Our next big trip (hopefully next year, or the year after) will be up the Centre, then across to WA. I haven't been further than Alice. Been all the way to Cape York in Far North Queensland, though, but that's about it. Love your pictures ... the pub looks great, there are some wonderful old pubs out there !!
Thanks, Jen
Take care, Meow

Hope you are having a great day. Doing a little blog hopping til I see for sure what the rain clouds are going to do. High humidity here today and hot and steamy. We need rain tho, badly, the grass is turning brown....and Bun-Bun did not "hop" around to long outside this morning.......she loves central air. LOL.

Take care
