This has been an epic journey, Scott, and it's not over. Now you've got me wanting to visit Cobram.
Careful. There's some very weird people there. Hope you've been enjoying it! And yes, it is far from over.
I've heard a lot about the Parkes Observatory watching a few old episodes of The Sky at Night. Who cares if the science is outdated, it's wonderful to see Patrick Moore's enthusiasm about the latest developments in astronomy. :DI do love those 70s bathroom fixtures...
For sure Nick. Mind you, I do believe that it is going to feature somewhere in the upcoming new series of Cosmos. And I know exactly what you mean about Patrick Moore!
Sounds like a stressful journey indeed, but the observatory must have been a wonderful sight. That dish is so huge it looks like it's going to topple off the supporting structure.
It was beautiful. The photos don't really capture it as I had to use a wide angle lens to get a photo of it without standing in someone's paddock. So it looks a little more distant.
Epic! Great photos, thanks for "The Dish" hint. Though (sorry, sorry - I know I shouldn't but... :) ) I admit I would feel weird staying in a hotel with creeping pants no mater how beautiful they are :D.
Thank you! Really? Do you have a 'day of the triffids' related phobia or something? I love them... But it was really covering up the blandness of the 70's era rudimentary structure.
Pants? ReaLLy? ;)
Pants are over-rated. I prefer go keep them off.
Finally, a temperature drop! Too bad the trip wasn't all that relaxing as a vacation should be. You've had some disappointments and now even family worries. Looking forward to the next chapter. Hopefully things will be okay again!
