So much I want to share, here in my blog about our fantastic journey across the Kimberley but we are heading westward for another bush camp, so the blogging trip update will have to wait. We are in Karratha, on the Pilbara coast of Western Australia. After a fast catch up on emails, refilling our fuel and water tanks and doing a few loads of washing to make our selves presentable again, Reg and I have decided to head right back into the bush, to Marble Bar, reputedly the hottest town in Australia though a very pleasant winters day there today of 27 degrees Celsius.
Western Australia, near thee Northern Territory
So please excuse the delays in updating my blog site while we enjoy this wonderful out of internet range wilderness, again. I will have stories pouring out of me that I am eager to share, and internet communication will become more accessible as we travel through the mining towns of Tom Price and Newman.
While we are in Tom Price in two weeks time, we will be exhibiting at the 'Nameless Festival,' which is held on the oval at the foot of the beautiful, 'Mount Nameless.' Doesn't that make you smile? Where else, but in outback Australia or a mining town, would Aussie humour dominate to the extent that local icons would be called 'Nameless', to signify that no one could think up a name everyone could agree on and the nameless title would stick?
I love this lack of sophistication and country humour and love becoming one with the locals, at whatever town I am in, for a short time of every year, before, during and following their big festival or show.
Our next event is the FeNaCINC festival at Karratha. I have five days to 'go bush', in, then I will be back online on the 31st of July, briefly, as that's the night before the biggest exhibition of the year for us, the 1st and 2nd of August is the festival itself and I'll come on line here with a few brief posts to let you know how the show is going for us, then we head inland, into the amazing Pilbara country side, towards Tom Price, it's an incredibly pretty town.

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
