Hello From The Outback Part 1

Dear Mum,

I am having a wow of a time with my holiday Mum & Dad. This is me arriving on the station. We are so far away from anyone. It takes 1.5 hours to get to the nearest town and the mail only comes once a week.

Can you see my ears bending in the breeze? Yesterday we did a water-run and so much happened. I have lots of photos already so sit back and enjoy them.

On our water-run we checked the solor panel at the house dam to make sure it was on. This is to pump water up to the house at the homestead so that I can have a bath tonight.

Jacky and Jody were my travelling chums on the water-run. My holiday Dad was the driver and holiday Mum was opening all the gates.

This is called a trough and its for the sheep to drink out of when they are in their paddocks. I didn't have a drink because there was green bits in it. I was having fresh water from the ute.

I got out of the ute to help open the gate and I got a nasty prickle in my foot.

It hurt so much, but I felt a lot better once I had a band-aid put on it.

Thank goodness my holiday parents have the internet. I'll email some more photos(about the water-run) tonight and you can post them for me tomorrow.



Eat more chicken.

Dear Percy,

Boy for a little pig, you sure do get around. I am so glad you are having a wonderful adventure in the outback. Thanks goodness for the internet, otherwise your postcards would only be sent once a week.

Can't wait to read more about your water-run adventure when your email drops in.
