Roma and Lightning Ridge / by Ethan Astall

On our way South towards Port we stopped in at Roma and saw the big bottle tree, amongst the other 1000 in the town. We treated ourselves to a glorious hot shower at a dingy road side toilet block. The sunsets out that way are absolutely breath taking, due to the road train diesel fumes but the sky is nice to. Rolling into lightning ridge at midnight we got a candid photo at an art wall at a suss servo and checked out the local hot springs which were occupied by a couple of naked old blokes, also suss so we headed to bed at a road side stop on the highway.
