... a goods train. You will see from the photo that graffiti is a problem here as well as at home.
The second 'first' was to have a shepherd herd his sheep across our path. No fences on the paddocks here so shepherds are used. He, and his dogs, were more than happy to have their photo taken. Nice looking sheep with plenty of wool.
The Hotel tonight is the only one in town and is very nice and looks quite new. On arrival we were issued with a list of instructions more like a ...
