Eyre Peninsula is the big triangle bit in the western half on South Australia. It is bordered at its three “points” by Port Augusta in the east, Ceduna in the west and Port Lincoln in the south. Todays entry comes from Pt Augusta. Just outside of the town, on the side of the road, are a series of graves. The dates range from the early to the mid 1800’s and none of the names seem to be related. Some of the surnames are still in the town and some of them are street names. But this isn’t a cemetary. It’s just a group of about 20 graves, some marked, some not, on the side of the road. All are in a state of disrepair. Some of the deceased were old when they died, some young. There are men, women and children. I don’t know why they were buried on the outskirts of town when there are several perfectly good cemetaries in the town. It reminds me of “boot hill” in an old westen movie.
And now onto the weather. This photo was taken on Sunday around lunchtime from the usual location. I promise you, these are different photos!! Summer in southern Australia doesn’t change much! There hasn’t been any rain this week, and the temps have been fluctuating wildly. 36C one day, 22C the next. Many farmers have now almost finished harvest – it has been very short due to such low yields.
Sunday 16th Nov. Max Temp: 24C, Min Temp: 10C, Rainfall: 0mm
