14 Feb NT Australia: The Pebbles & Devils Marbles
From pebbles to boulders, we visited The Pebbles and Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles).
What better way to start a post then with a picture of human made letters L.O.V.E… literally. I don’t remember how this happened tbh. Yet this picture showed how truly bored we were lol. I mean… at least we try to lighten up by doing “fun” things? You must understand that everywhere we went, the color orange pretty much dominated 90% of the entire trip, other than the blue skies lol. Believe it or not, we were so bored we even played with flies when we took toilet breaks and from the long hours of driving. On a side note, thank god for the nets we bought. The summer flies we can’t even man.
I mentioned about the amusing sight of termite mounds in the “Our First Campervan Trip Experience” post. And we found the best dressed mound, Orgee (named by E) in a striking orange long sleeve top and a contrasting blue cap. They soon became #bffs haha. This attire must have been freshly dressed because the other mounds were mostly in tattered clothings.
According to an article with the locals, they revealed that dressing up the mounds doesn’t cause any harm to it didn’t mind a little fun to perk up the long drive. It can get really dreary when you’re spending many hours in the vehicle driving on a straight road along the stuart highway. Check out the other interestingly dressed termite mounds here. 😆
After 4 hours of driver later, we arrived at The Pebbles. We probably spent the last 20mins in a very very shaky vehicle because of the small pebbles on the road like… everywhere. A 4-wheeler would have no problem on that particular road but campervans were a challenge for us. We could hear the plates rattling within the wooden drawers. Praying that we didn’t shatter any of it and that we needed the limited crockeries for our meals.
On clear days, sunrise, sunset and stargazing in Australia were just stunning every single time without fail man. I wonder if it’s due to the vast skies? I find myself looking forward to it because there’s so much “variety”. And this is the sunset in Tennant Creek Caravan Park for your admiration. Shooting the stars and the milky way was another challenge without a tripod. I didn’t manage to get good photos of the milky way here (day 3) but follow my blog and check back later for my post of our returning trip.

This has got to be the most interesting boulder in Devils Marbles. It’s almost a perfect round boulder split cleanly due to the hot & cold weather. The wonders of rock formation.
It’s a perfect place to have some AR shots of the ground type pokemons. Looking like it’s natural habitat.

A group shot of us in Devils Marbles. See the sizing of the boulders around us?
Some of the places that were known to be sacred grounds would have a signage or fence to indicate that photography is not allowed. But in Devils Marbles, we didn’t see any of it so I’m hoping these photos doesn’t cause unpleasant viewing. But look at the amazingly neatly stacked boulders already.
This is almost looking like a giant fishball no? E pretending to hold the “fishball” like a strong. 💪
Ending the post with a dramatic sunset we witnessed in Ti Tree Roadhouse.
