Day 37

What to do in a town like Alice

Today, after a slow start we went for a picnic out at the old Telegraph station. It was amazing to see all the various bird life around from kites to galahs to magpies plus a couple of others. Near the telegraph station is the now dry waterhole from which Alice Springs got its name, named after Alice Todd who was the wife of the postmaster general of the time.
After our nice picnic, we went up to Anzac Hill which overlooks the whole town and you get a real idea of just how small Alice Springs really is. It is supposed to look really good at night time which we will do on another night.
This afternoon I must have been really tired as I had my first "nanna nap" of our whole trip - maybe the whole "see the whole country in 7 weeks" is catching up with me after all and I've still got a week and a half to go!
