Dot painting

Interesting story to tell. In the Todd Street Mall on Friday I bought a dot painting from Willowra Community artist , Patsy Ross. Within 5 minutes it fell out of my laptop shoulder bag. On my return from Uluru, next morning on Sunday I checked with the Alice Springs Police Station and I was very lucky, somebody had handed it in!!
Thanks Alice Springs anonymous person for handing it in!!

Uluru Rock art
Looking at the climb
Almost too much to take in. It so big and the Dreaming stories are quite interesting. So much to see and do and take in.
Our tour guides Scott and Tic were great, this is the long and short of it!!

Dinner at Uluru
The sunset viewing was packed with coach tours and the dinner was a hearty BBQ although strictly not meant to be on my diet these days.

I tried to get some sleep on my way back but no luck.
