Weekly photo challenge : Purple

Purple Pub, Normanton

Purple Pub Normanton

This weeks theme for the photo challenge is “purple” and it immediately brought back memories of the trip around Australia. I asked Jack what his memory of purple was and he had no hesitation naming the Purple Pub in Normanton in the gulf country of Northern Queensland. It is very “in your face” big and bold in the middle of the main street. It invites you to go inside.

We stayed at the camp ground across the road and had a counter meal, it was fish and chips, OK but not as memorable as some we have had.

Even the seats are painted purple

Jack makes friends easily and he palled up with this mother and her son. Notice the BBQ table and window frames are also painted purple. Even the clothes every one is wearing is sort of purple…

Thoughts from an Aboriginal

This poem was pinned up on the wall in the pub. How true it is. Even mentions purple…
