Crikey ..... the last time I handed over to our Harri was in March and it's now June so here's the Bungle Bungles as promised way back then.This is one of Mum and Dad's very favourite parts of Australia. It's in Western Australia and it's pretty spectacular. It was relatively unknown and definitely unheard of until 1983 when an Australian film crew discovered it. It's worth googling if you are in any ways interested. It is now World heritage listed and even I have to say it's very beautiful. Mum said the road in left a bit to be desired. I wouldn't like that part too much but Harri used to lap up those road trips. There was a funny story involved so I'd best relate that part I guess. Seems the best way to really see the Bungle Bungles is by chopper. Well Mum and Dad decided to do it. Harri had to stay back at the camp site. He was good like that!! You couldn't leave me anywhere. Not even for five minutes. I'd be a nervous wreck!! Anyway Mum and Dad set out for the chopper ride. When they got there they were told there were no doors on the chopper (for better viewing) and they couldn't take ANYTHING
with them other than a camera which must be worn around their neck. Nothing was to be in their pockets. No hat on their heads. Nothing!! Now Mum had and still has long hair. She thought the no hat thing was going to be a problem so she decided to plait her hair thinking that would hold it safe. Now I don't know if you have been in a chopper with no doors but fair dinkum ..... the wind factor ..... OMD!!!!
Those plaits lasted about five seconds and Mums hair was flying all over the place. She didn't even worry about it as she was having such a good time but ..... CRIKEY
.... when she got back on the ground and Dad saw her he burst out laughing. When Mum looked in a mirror she knew why. What a mess!! That wasn't the worst part though. The KNOTS
.... fair dinkum .... it took ages to get them out and not only that but she lost heaps of hair in the process. She ended up having to have her hair cut to enable it to recover properly. No more chopper rides for Mum!!
Well it's over to our Harri with the photos ... and
just for Harri ... UP THE IRISH!!
|They stopped here for a picnic lunch. It was the beginning of the bungles.|
|On the road in. |
|From the chopper!!|
|This was another spot they visited. They flew in here by chopper too. It had doors. The road trip in is long and arduous. |
|Mum loved these trees. Good for peeing on but that's about all I reckon. |
|How pretty is this spot. Parry's lagoon. Another nightmare road but well worth it, aye?? The bird life was amazing. Imagine me there. I'd have given those birds hurry up, aye?? Not Harri. He just slept on in the car.|
|OMD!! I s'pose I've gotta say he was good lookin', aye??|
|Just so you remember whose blog this is!!|
Wanna run .... Love, Charlie
Your pawrents sure had a lovely trip to the bungles, what a funny moniker, BOL!ReplyDelete
Beautiful and awesome!
Love our pleading take me with you eyes! Or is it don't furget me?
It's the "what about me" look Mr JF Sir!! Harri always makes me feel sooooooo insecure. Mum and Dad loved him soooooooooo much.Delete
And you are loved with all their hearts, too. They couldn't bear to miss you in any way, I am sure of that. ♥Delete
Crikey Mr JF Sir ...... I feel better now. Thankyou!! I'm sure you're right but boy they sure loved that bloke and Lucy too. I have quite the job filling those boots, aye?? I'm pretty sure I'm wheedling my way in. It took me a bit to settle in. They got Harri and Lucy as little puppies. I was 6 months old and a bit stand offish at first. Not any more!! I'm a real snuggly bunny now!! Bunny ...... did I say bunny????????? CRIKEY .....Delete
Run, Cahrlie, Run...there is a bunny! BOL!Delete
Oopsie...growlmy messed up *your* name...sigh...furgive her, OK?Delete
Luv all da pics!ReplyDelete
Almost as pretty as Texas, aye??Delete
Didja know dat place are named after my momma since it are da Kimberley region of Western Australia? I wonder if dat means she owns it, BOL!Delete
There is NO WAY SHE would go in a copter with NO doors. SHE did go on one with doors in Alaska and sat in the middle, between two people so they'd fall out first.ReplyDelete
Never been to WA except to get on the Indian Pacific to come back to Sydney. Would love to see a photo of the hair!
eeeek - tell mum I had a hairy incident in life once too.... but I was firmly on the good earth all through out...
Meanwhile, the Bungles are one of the sights I haven't ticked off my list - these photos sure took me there though... and as for Harri - I LUVZ ME A REDOG, I gotta thing for redogs..and redogs with mustatches??? be still my fluttery... (ahem - decorum please woman..)
Charlie, you are the dog of the moment and very generous to have shared. Quit looking so worried - luvz you too &*> Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Crikey Aunty .... do tell ..... I'd like to hear about it.Delete
I've gotta do the Bungles too. Maybe we could go together one day, aye??
Crikey Aunty ..... not you too. EVERYONE loves Harri. Mum and Dad are still getting over losing him. They were besotted. What about me????? I'm cute ..... truly I am!! I know you luvz me. So does Mum and Dad but that Harri ..... he sure makes me feel insecure.
that is on Mom and Dads 'to do list' when they retire back home. They want to see the Bungle Bungles and Wave Rock and..........well everything :)ReplyDelete
Your Mum and Dad are going to retire back here?? You mean we might get to meet. When? Crikey I hope it's soon. There's so much to see, aye? Mum and Dad have been to lots of Australia but they still have a 'to do list'. They haven't been to Wave rock yet. They got very close once but ran out of time.Delete
Geez Charlie your eyes remind me of izzi's big eyes in that photo. Lookn' good mate!ReplyDelete
Yeah .... me and Izzi are a good lookin' pair, aye??Delete
Whut a co-inky-dink! Mommy jus watched a deal on the t an v bout those Bungle Bungles! Whut a cool place.ReplyDelete
That Harri! Sum dog.
Crikey Zoe ..... that sure was a co-inky-dink, aye??Delete
Hmmmmmmmm ..... I s'pose Harri was pretty good ... sort of!!
Wow that was one heck of an adventure. Lucky mum and dad. We so would love to do that. Cool place we say. Have a fabulous Friday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
They do have a pretty good time when they go on road trips, aye??Delete
OH CRIKEY Charlie... this is a GRAND tour of a BEAUTIFUL area of your country. WOW the pictures are STUNNING. We REALLY thank you fur sharing this with us.ReplyDelete
Sorry your mum's head furs got all knotted up on that helicopter ride.
WOW the BEAUTY of that location.
It sure is a special part of the world, aye?? I hope I get to go one day too. Mum reckons I would love it. She's promised to take me.Delete
I don't want to go in one of those chopper things though. Although my hairs already short so I'd be ok.
FURST we laughed and laughed about the hair, but poor mom for having to cut it...holey crap....second our mom loved those rock formations, she has this weird fascination with rocks, and they don't even breath like us or hug her. Cool pictures and post.ReplyDelete
Crikey Stella .... your Mom sure has a fascination with rocks, aye? I saw her garden on your latest post. My Mum was so impressed. She loves rocks too. Weird, aye??Delete
Very beautiful sights to see, but you would never get our mom on a helicopter ride.ReplyDelete
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta
Well I don't blame your Mom. Those choppers are pretty scary lookin' things, aye?? If we were meant to fly we'd have wings or something.Delete
Looks like a fun area to explore. And of course that was a great shot of YOU! We thought fur sure you would have gotten a shot of your mum's hair!ReplyDelete
Murphy & Stanley
Yeah ..... I would have liked to see it too. Shame no one thought to take that shot, aye???Delete
The little trash can is if you want to delete your own link. If you grab the code and put it on your blog (under HTML) then all the links also appear on your blog.ReplyDelete
Crikey .... thanks Murphy .... I'll give it a try but my Mum doesn't really understand all the tech stuff. I think I'm stuck with just doing my posts and joining in with all the Blogville stuff when and IF I can. The blog hop thingie has Mum completely baffled.Delete
What spectacular scenery out there.ReplyDelete
It is pretty special, aye?Delete
What gorgeous scenery!! If yer Momma likes da rocks, she needs to come to see my Daddy's ole stompin' grounds, Arizona, and see da Grand Canyon and all da other rock formations dey gots dere... it's lousy wiff 'em!! Da Four Couners area and Monument Valley are purdy cool, too!ReplyDelete
Oops, I meant Four Corners... bol!Delete
She's going Finley ..... she's going!!!! Next year she reckons. Dad's makin' her go. She's a worry wart and would go nowhere if it weren't for him. She's nervous about it already. Arizona is one of the places on Dad's list. They are off to Europe in a few weeks time. Mum's a wreck!! She'll be alright once she gets there but the plane trip really freaks her out. Then she's got to get home and she freaks out about the plane trip all over again. No they don't travel overseas every year. This is their first overseas trip since 2004.Delete
That looks like a marvelous adventure. Your Mom is a marvel. Mommy doesn't get out much, or up, maybe to go to the kitchenReplyDelete
