Here are a few pics from my amazing weekend away to the "Bedouin Clay Pans of Carnarvon". I have to say, it was one of the most incredible times I've ever had.
My gorgeous friend and a band of her neighbours put together this make believe little oasis, complete with pet goats, in the Aussie desert and brought together around 50 wonderful women. We were brain storming some fund raising ideas to raise capital for the purchase of a helicopter for medical evacuations for the area. My gorgeous friend sadly lost her teenage son to a tragic motorbike accident while mustering sheep on the station about a year and a half ago. This tragedy highlighted the desperate need for this type of service in her region.
Apart from brain storming we did a great deal of laughing, lounging, feasting, bubbles consuming, chatting with old friends, power walking over the cracked clay and enjoying the company of some incredibly strong and gutsy women. Into the night a fire dancer with lit torches performed for us under the wide outback sky. We went to sleep under the stars, and were ever so greatful that we were there.
For now we've come away with pink painted work boots, some pretty out there costumes, a bunch of amazing memories, and a drive to get this thing rolling and steaming ahead to reality.
