Number 44, AKA Silver Cavier!

Hello Teacher and Students, My name is Dianne and my husband John and I are travelling around Australia by caravan for 12 months. We left home in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland on 6th April and have thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful State of Western Australia. We have never been to WA before. It is so completely different to our State. We actually free camped just west of Ravensthorpe on 31st October and I took photos of your lovely rose garden in town. From there we travelled to Esperance and then on to Kalgoorlie. On the way we stopped to take photos of the galvanised iron camels on the roundabout in Norseman. There I found your wire horse No. 44 sitting on the rump of a camel as you will see in the photo. I was very excited and felt it was nearly like finding a letter in a bottle. Well almost! I named her "Silver Caviar". I knew she had to be placed somewhere special and so she came for quite a ride with us. Into Coolgardie for the Melbourne Cup and then onto Kalgoorlie. From here we free camped across the Nullarbor then into Fowler's Bay, Streaky Bay, Venus Bay, Coffin Bay and finally Port Lincoln where we are now. As you can see in the photos I placed her under the statue of Makybe Diva. While we were there a man came along with his pet Kangaroo named Skippy. So Skippy hopped up and also had her photo taken with these two "famous horses". Later I saw a man and lady pick up Silver Caviar and take her, so I hope she has more adventures which they will then relate back to you. Thank you for the chance to participate in your school project. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would love to hear of her travels in the future if you would care to let me know. Thanking you, Kind regards Dianne

  1. Dear Dianne,
    It's been a while since we've got online to check "Silver Caviar's" progress - we love her name. We were only talking about the wire sculpture that was proudly on display in our dining area for almost a year before someone decided it was time she went on her travels sometime in late 2012. It was a while before we noticed her gone!
    We are so so pleased that you found her and took her on such amazing adventures, and we really hope the next person enjoys this project as much as you did!
    Our only regret is we did not get a photo of her before she left. In your blog you mention a photo but there is not one appearing. If possible (and I hope you read this) would you mind emailing a pic to Silver Caviar's creator Rylee? - rylee.jess@me.com . Thank you so much for sharing your adventures - you made our day ... Kindest regards - Angela (mother of creator)
