We have been away for a few days…
Adrian and I spent an amazing extended weekend at Nonning Station in the Gawler ranges, north-west of Adelaide. It was one of the best trips away we have had in a very, very long time. Just the two of us. Lots of beautiful scenery, lots of people to meet, lots of talking and laughing.
I realise that the Australian outback is not every ones idea of 'beautiful', especially if you don't like dust and red dirt but I just love it. There is something about the vastness of the bush that I find truly mind-blowing and magnificent - it makes you put everything into perspective somehow. And this place was big, really big. Nonning Station alone covers over 20,000 square kilometres - you can't really afford to make a wrong turn.
Why Nonning? Each year the station hosts a large Gymkhana and it seemed as good a reason as any to head that way. None of us are horse people, but it was fabulous fun all the same and we met so many lovely and amazing people. Thank you so much to everyone for making us feel so welcome
- I am quite convinced that this will not be the last time we visit….
