Every Picture Tells a Story …. ( Rod Stewart 1971 )

Posted by mervfrench on March 1, 2010

A classic album released before probably most of you were born ( 1971). Anyway it has nothing to do with this image.

I was browsing thru a hard drive of old shots and this grabbed my eye . Taken a few years ago on a trip to Cape York  this is on  highway 1 , yes highway  number 1, in the gulf country between Booraloola and Mataranka somewhere near Hells Gate roadhouse in the NT.

And the sign is dead right it was exactly that !!!!!

    Arrrh .. the good old days, but then there’s always tomorrow to look forward too.

    You’ve been a bit quite Mark.

    On another note, guy i know, Greg Quick has just departed on TN for a bit of an astronomy gig.

    Yes indeed he is on TN for the West Coast Explorer. Mike Fletcher is also onboard.

    I was in Brisbane last week for a couple of days and at Rotto over the weekend and without internet access.

    Not many photo opportunities at Rotto this weekend due to strong Easterleys exept for last night which I have posted.

    Good outback sense of humour there. Can see you groovin’ to Rod at the town hall dance wearing corduroy flares back in ’71 🙂

    That bl00dy road cost me 5 awning poles…they fell out of their tube under the camper, rattled free thanks to a few billion corrugations.

    Hopefully I will be back that way in May for a gig.
