3. Our house!

It seems strange to say that not a lot happens here but it doesn’t compared to Ubar. There are the horses to feed night and morning, paddocks to muck out, gardens, lawns and blueberries to water – although I’m not sure for how much longer as there is a water shortage developing and no let up in the hot dry weather for the near future. We were obtaining and maintaining an extra neat and tidy look to the ranch due to the prospective viewings, although it would appear that there is a very interested buyer but no deal finalised as yet. The other ranch has been purchased and will be available from mid-August so packing has started and that is my job in the mornings when I can’t get out into the gardens which are now a lower priority. So I thought I’d send a few photos to illustrate our surroundings.

These are of the cabin where we live with Arnaud.

So, not too shabby? We have a day off tomorrow but are unsure what to do with it as we are a bit isolated here (there are worse places). No public transport and $30+ each way by taxi into town. We could do with a lazy day though due to the work, early rises and heat. Also, we worked 5 days at Ubar then packed and started our journey on the 6th, travelled all day on 7th and have completed a further 5 days here. We were hoping to not replicate the ski chalet!
