Location: Scone, Australia

MapSaturday 11th April - Off to Scone

Uncle Syd and Aunty Rita dropped us off at the service station, where we were met by Benny and his girlfriend Sandra or "dutchy". They brought us back to Riversdale so we could settle in, then we went to dinner at benny's parents, Pete and Alison, at Glenoak.
Benny took us out on the Quad in the dark up to the dam to look for Yabbi's (they look just like Crayfish), and on the way we came across 8-10 Kangaroos! One of which we chased for a little while, but not for too long because we didn't want to get lost!

Sunday 12th April

Spent the day driving to Currububula where Benny was to perform in an open mike night. We stopped along the way at Murrurundi to meet Pete and Alison for some lunch.
It was a good evening of live music and a friendly atmosphere, and Benny did pretty good too.

Wednesday 15th April - trip to Morpeth

It was a lovely warm day so we took the car to Morpeth, a historical town towards the coast. The town comprised of boutique shops and riverside cafe's. We took a stroll down by the river, had a lovely lunch and mooched around the shops. It was a good day.
