Roadside oasis

May 6th, 2011

Brief foray to the coast. Carmila beach. Few miles east. Then back to the servo beside the highway south. Never closing. Late morning. A few trucks. Their drivers – truckies – in the adjacent cafe.

Steady trickle of cars and pick-ups. Small shop. Just the bare necessities. Outside a steady breeze, the odd stronger gust. But warm. Pleasant. Few settlements along the road in either direction. But not barren. Yet it felt more like an oasis than just a roadhouse.
