DAY 200 Friday 25th October
Well, we have managed to make the magic 200 entries. I hope if any are reading it that it is entertaining you, or at least bringing back some memories. Today, once again was an easy day with just a little to see around the Carcoar Dam area. We started after breakfast by driving over the dam wall and continuing to towns, Barry, Hobby’s Yards, Trunkey Creek, where it was noted that the land was very picturesque and lovely and green. At Trunkey Creek a potty stop was called at a roadside toilet; the only one I have seen that is complete with a HOT shower, how good is that. A town drive followed by a U turn and returning to Barry and from there up to Newbridge where a picnic lunch was had at a table in the Show Grounds. The show area is beginning to look the worse for its years, but the sandwiches were fine, although we needed to seek shelter from the ever present cold wind.
From Newbridge we headed for Blayney where a town walk was done before Diesel and Gas were purchased at the Shell. Back to the camp at Carcoar Dam and were surprised to find our area near the water was filled with locals with a Skijet. This amused us for a time before they also packed up and headed away from the cold wind. A short walk around the camp took us to Happy Hour time.
Just a short happy hour was had before we headed, once again, to fire up those diesel heaters in the vans and cook up a lovely meal for tea before bed. Have I missed saying bed at all?
