We finally left Alice Springs after 36 days, including our trip to Yulara. While in Alice, Bucko returned to Sydney for a few days to see his children before Kellie took off to the UK to work, Ben and Rosemary left for a 3mth tour of Europe and Josh attended a wedding in the USA. It rained the whole time Paul was away, I was happy and snug in our we van and though settled down to do a bit of reading and relaxing.
A special caravan park (on the way up to Mataranka, our next stop), is Wycliffe Well. Special for what, you may ask, well for being the UFO Centre of Australia. The walls of the Roadhouse dining room are covered in newspaper clippings of supposed sighting. I was able to find a few Aliens outside the reception area. Wycliffe Well is the closest place to stay to visit the Devils Marbles, and the reason we stayed for three nights. New owners of the park are spending time, money and effort renovating the place, and have opened up the Dining room out the back of the park. A Chinese chef is in residence, and the food was terrific. Road-trains with clearance lights a blaze could be seen and heard from the park, this did not worry me, I like to hear them in the night, and the trucks look so pretty with the lights on. Hope you like the photos, if you look at them you may see the gremlins have been at work in some of them, or could it have been ALIENS!
