Today's drive took us through Temora, Forbes, Parkes then Dubbo. Parts of the Newel Highway were terrible with filled potholes being the majority of the road surface. We took it in turns driving as we usually do. We stopped at the Parkes Railway Station and I have included some photos of it.
The van park is very close to the Western Plains Zoo which we have visited many years age ...
Arrived in Dubbo NSW around 12pm. Good road and travelling. Geoff drove from Parkes to Dubbo. We drove into Big 4 at Dubbo, but we're not happy with our site so asked for refund and went to Midstate Caravan Park. Old but very clean and reception was friendly,compared with Big 4. Spent the afternoon chasing a globe and driving around Dubbo to get our bearings. Happy hr at 4.30pm with just Geoff and I. Temperature got down to -1o last night in the ...
Once again we awoke at 8.00 am this seems to be the time our body
clocks have adjusted too. We had our usual cappuccinos whilst sitting under the
awning watching all of our neighbours pack up and leave. I started to pack up
the fire pit, it was ½ full of water. As I emptied the unburnt timber and water

We cooked a late lunch and before we knew it the fire had been lit and we were ready for another night around the fire. As we watched the birds flying in to their trees, Jan and I saw something we DID NOT LIKE! A Hawk flew over us quite low clutching a small bird in its claws with what looked like a magpie lark flying as hard as it could to keep up.
We may stay here one more night and head towards Cowra on ...
... the bar don't know how to make margarita's (tequila, Cointreau, lemon juice, ice, salt. how hard is that?), so we wander over the road to the Hogs Breath Cafe, where they say they can make them, but I guess it's harder than i thought, as these are pretty dismal. I have to add extra lemon to it so it's not just a tequila slushie.
I guess that's a sign that it's time to call it a night, as we're off to the Zoo in the morning :)
