35/52: The Devils Marbles

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Juju: Rock collecting. 
Mowgli and Coco: Full of beans and up to no good
 

North of Alice Springs, the highway passes close to The Devils Marbles, a famous rock formation that’s right up there with Uluru. The local Warumungu Aboriginals call them Karlu Karlu.

The twins were fast asleep (it felt like winning lotto).

While the Airstream did laps to ensure they stayed asleep, Juju and I explored the giant red granite boulders – the gift of millions of years of erosion.

All too quickly we were back on the road, headed to our next campsite.

And the boys were awake again and bursting with energy.

    I so know the feeling of doing laps to keep little ones asleep, can only imagine what it is like with two!

    1. It’s the story of my life lately Julie – they’re such horrendous sleepers!

    1. As fun as it can be travelling with three kids under four… kind of masochism really, but it definitely has its moments. And much more fun than staying home! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. Oh, I feel like I just came home. What a lovely lot of travelling you are doing. I haven’t been to Devil’s Marbles in a while! And in style too, it seems! Lovely to ‘discover’ your blog at Che and Fidel. I’m loving the 52 portrait series too! x
