Where I stayed
At our cabin
Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. A good camp fire that I note only the boys enjoyed with a few bottles of wine. Where were the girls..........watching the wedding of course.
We split from the group and headed for Swan Hill , stayed at the Showground free with power for 2 nights .
Into Narrandara where we stayed in a Showgound again and discovered this amazing old building. Built approx 104 years ago, it is now believed to be the last of it's kind in Australia.
Of course it is in disrepair, needs money spent ,Historical Society will not take on the challenge and no one else is interested so another building telling us of our short history is heading for the rubbish heap.
We spent a very wet and cool night at Jugiong, decided we would camp further away from the river than usual,and were just sitting having a quiet drink when excitement and horse noises behind us occurred, Pete stuck his head out the door and we now had a horse float pulled up behind us, memories of Corryong and sale yards came straight to mind.
Horse was unloaded and we waited, about 15 minutes later a farrier appeared, horse was re shod ,loaded back on the float and headed home. You never know what to expect when you free camp.
Next morning we had a quick chat to Colin & Mary from Lakelanders, who had called in to check the place out. They were just heading North from Charlton and had stayed the night before at Holbrook.
Into Yass the next day,where we celebrated a 9 year old birthday, spent a couple of extra days catching up with family, spent Saturday watching soccer games, Sunday Mothers Day we had one more Soccer game to watch, and were going to head off that afternoon but saw that it was expected to be -3 the following a.m. so we stayed in warmth for one more night.
Monday morning saw us on the road again. We stayed in Wollongong Monday night, did ythe Drs appointment Tuesday morning and tthen headed for Lake Tabourie arriving late afternoon.
Warm days ( when you can get out of the wind) cool nights, but it is May.
Well the motor home is unloaded, the suitcases are looking at me waiting to be loaded , can't believe it is only 16 days before we head for the wild blue yonder.
Enjoy your travels keep in touch, we hope to keep you up to date whilst we are overseas.
