A couple of years ago we traveled extensively around Oz.
Ending up in central Australia, Ray was keen to see the most famous ROCK in the world, Uluru.
Now what is it about that place that everyone flocks there to see?
It was beyond me.
We camped our caravan the night before and Ray was up early next morning with his camera to begin photographing.
Am I daft?? I couldn't understand how anyone could take lots of photos, of a silly rock?
The Size of This Rock: The sandstone formation stands 348 m (1,142 ft) high (rising 863 m/2,831 ft above sea level), with most of its bulk lying underground, and has a total circumference of 9.4 km (5.8 mi).
Once I got to see this amazing natural landmark, I understood the spiritual meaning it holds to our Aboriginals. I felt like I was in the presence of a very powerful spiritual force. I am still dumbstruck when I think about it. I believe that is how I will feel when I finally meet my creator face to face. The Rock, or Uluru as it is called by our indigenous people, changes colours, through out the day.
Ray climber all over it, taking about two hours.
I sat on a seat and looked and looked at it enthralled.
In the evening, as the sun goes down, it becomes magical.
All I can say about it now is: It draws you back into its majestic presence, where you feel at one with the creator.
