Country road

After the ANZAC Day March, after the Gallery had closed on Wednesday we went for a drive along the Anabranch Road.  'Anabranch Road' is a little misleading because you see very little of the Anabranch.  The road is the mail route so it passes the back of the pastoral properties which have their fronts on the Anabranch.  About halfway between the old Renmark Road and the Silver City Highway is this turnoff to the Anabranch Hall.  This hall used to be the meeting and entertainment centre for the pastoral families.  I think the annual picnic is still held.
I love these shelters.  They remind me of emus.  Steve thinks they are used to shade cars but I like to imagine rows of tables with red gingham table cloths and families watching the tennis.  I rather like the idea of using an emu for shade in the bush - a Marg Whyte sort of a picture.
A pomegranate conveniently situated at the front door.
And a very well appointed loo.
