So I am interested in what Australian-bbq is like . I have relatives in Syndney and need to get back there one of these days. i have not been there since the 1980's been to busy working.

I think Australia would be another country I would love to live in because it is similar in many ways to Arizona in climate and geography.

There is a large interior desert called the outback that is beautiful and wild. thats what appeals to me about Arizona its a wild and beautiful place.

And they love to bbq. what else do you need? I will tell you what is great in Australia they have the beach everywhere. In Arizona if you want to go to the beach you have to drive 5 hours to Mexico to the closet beach in Rocky Point Mexico in the stater of Sonora.

It is a very strenuous trip because you pass thru thr prt of Arizona and Mexico called the Camino de Diablo-This is translated into English as the Road of the Devil.

WHy do they call this that-because it is bone dry and even the cactus has trouble living here. There is no water period except in some hollowed out tanks of rock part of the year.

There are many pioneer graves here of people who tried to cross this desert to head to California in the 1800s who dies and are buried above ground in rock graves.

So we need to endure this in order to drive to the beautiful beach at Puerto Penasco. On the road there you will see trucks carrying Mexican soldiers who guard the border and we just wave at them. The only other beach close by is to fly to San Diego or go with Route 8 another long drive thru Gila point to get to the beaches in San Diego.

The problem there is so much traffic on the highways of San Diego. I still go to Rocky Point but now with all the drug wars people are getting scared to go to Mexico. It never scared me. Maybe its just I'm lucky sometimes....


Australia has the beach

in fact its surrounded by the ocean on all sides what better place then to have an Australian bbq. And there are so many remote places that you can really be alone if you want to,not like the beach in san diego.
