Wide open roads – Australia

View from the Moonbi lookout over the New England Highway, NSW, Australia

Australia is the land of the wide open roads

Long ribbons of highway stretching across a vast land

Twisty little roads through the mountains and the back blocks

Connecting quirky little villages

Iron Horses share the trough in Urana, NSW, Australia

Little rest areas along the road to make a cup of coffee out of the sun

Coffee and snack time at a roadside stop

And along the journey beautiful places to visit

New England National Park NSW, Australia

And at the end of the day the sunset filling the sky with colour

View from the balcony at the Canowindra Hotel

As the Australian band the Triffids said – Its a wide open road

Praia de Augas Santas, Galicia, Spain

As I plan the next adventure

My head fills with images

Thoughts of last year

Special places

Unique in nature

That have left a lasting impression on me

One of nature’s sculptures

Carved by the wind and waves of the Bay of Biscay

The Praia de Augas Santas

The Bay of Cathedrals

Is certainly a natural masterpiece

A place of spiritual beauty and wonder.
