Broken Hill

Yessiree !! Molly and I finally got to Broken Hill on friday the 24th. After a few( unnecessary stops) we travelled via the Silver City Hwy north from Mildura. The day was warmish ( 35 d or 92F) and just on 3 hours drive. A thunderstorm was in the offering but , alas, it was tricking my eyes as the heat permeated from the sky and the earth. In 1883 7 men from Mt Gipps station ( large farm)  when what they thought was tin but actually was silver , was discovered . These 7 men formed the original BHP or BHP Billiton as known today.   http://www.brokenhillaustralia.com.au

Molly and I are going to have a swim in the pool at caravan park then we will be off to see some of the interesting sites in the town and surrounding area.   Including the Royal Flying Doctor Service RFDS and the All important School of the AIR.

About Louise

I am a very young 52 year old. Like my star sign I am a typical Capricorn - tenacious, loyal, determined, honest, open minded, and dry sense of humour. I believe in astrology, intuition, spiritual matters and have a very healthy respect for all Buddhism. MY power number is 9. I was born at the end of a Dragon year. I am a very proud 5th generation Australian. I love to cook, read prolifically, write, and enjoy nature with all its wonderment. I love to cook especially for those who appreciate it. Like a great bottle of wine I am getting oh so much better with age. I have a natural curiosity and am constantly asking questions. I like to write and I wish I had become a librarian or researcher. Blogs help me get a "REAL FEEL" of what makes the world tick. Thank you every one for sharing.
