1,000 Posts and Still Going Strong

A decent drive from Onslow, there was some thought of heading directly inland and to The Little Sandy Desert but there was another phenomena I wanted to see. Since the days of my youngest daughter Lisa's adventures here, at the tender age of 17, her stories have encouraged me to take a look at
more of those mystifying Sand Dunes,
all were worth the journey but best was saved for last as the photos will show.
There's always someone who disobeys the signs!
 There have been a few nervous moments when the Blog has been close to collapse, especially recently, but 'Never Say Die' has pulled us through. During its existence only 19 posts have been missed, something of an achievement in itself, but what follows is the real reason we continue to run. A strange coincidence is that the Stat Counter reached the 50,000 mark for the UK on the same day, the USA are on the cusp of 4 figures, 40 nations have reached 3 figures with Singapore knocking on the door.
In the 'Total History' there have been a staggering 179,849 Pageviews!
It is also the 90th day of the current trip, it will be hard to drag myself away1
Thanks to everyone, especially our most loyal readers, for the support and we'll make 'best efforts' to keep it going.
