Last week as you might know, I had a melt down!! Melt down being the operative words. Weeks & weeks of high temperatures finally had its toll on me. I struggled to stay hydrated and cool both day and night. The heat was relentless! 😩 My work in recovering from heat exhaustion is ongoing and our aim now is to arrive home in a better state of mind!
So, we stopped at Mataranka Thermal Pool. Now I know what you’re thinking, ‘What are you doing going to a thermal pool when it’s very hot?’ The answer is simple. The thermal pool is cooler!!
I can’t explain what this did for me. I’m sure my body sizzled as it hit the water and I stayed there till I was all wrinkled like a prune! Beautiful!
It was too early for a drink, but we had a late lunch there and they were most accommodating with my Gluten Free diet. I was very impressed with that!
We also stopped at Daly Waters which is worth a trip just to see it. There’s nothing much there, but you’ll see what I mean.
Well, now you’ve seen Daly Waters without travelling there! 😀
Just before we crossed the border from the Northern Territory (NT) to Queensland (QLD) we saw this sign and had to smile.
We finally crossed the border from the Northern Territory to Queensland. So here is their respective welcome signs!
Cooler weather is now in site 😄
After conferring, we decided to head for the cooler climate of the east coast of Queensland and abort plans of travelling further inland. So, our journey will continue – hopefully at a reasonable temperature 😊
I’ll keep writing to a minimum and give you links to places so it’s easy reference for you to look up if you’re interested in a particular location.
As we’re travelling around Australia for X amount of months, I’ll keep the Hump Day Post (HDP) (on Wednesdays) for our journey and will continue to take part in the Weekly Photo Challenge (on Saturdays) – where possible. I’ll repeat this every week, just in case you’ve just joined me 🙂
