Carrots and sugar snaps, fresh from the ground. I hadn’t expected these. I was greeted my the friendly locals today with food, water, and a place to sleep for the night.

The road is now truly flat and the landscape arid. I love this kind of country. The red earth, normally bare, is covered in a blanket of grass.

There were lots of sleepy lizards on the road. I also saw a snake warming itself on the road. I startled it passing, as it dragged itself up into a vertical position.

Thanks to the Huntlys for letting me stay on their property. Lovely people.
