Di’s Travel Diary

MapHi all

We enjoyed our few days in Port Augusta with Kevin and Caroline. They came up from Adelaide and met us there. Port Augusta is not exactly a must see place but a convenient meeting place.

We enjoyed a walk through the arid gardens, a drive out to Quorn for a pub lunch and a drive to check out the beach shacks on the waterfront. The weather was a bit breezy for a picnic so we had our picnic in the cabin at the caravan park. At least it wasnt far to go for an afternoon siesta.

We are now back in NSW. We didnt need any sign to tell us as it was evident by the sudden deterioration of the road quality. How they can be so much worse than any other state is unbelievable.

From Port Augusta, next stop Broken Hill, then Cobar, now Gilgandra. All just overnighters - we stay hitched ready for take off the next day. We dont take off too early though.

Next stop Gunnedah for a few days. We are staying out on a farm to catch up with the first person I met when I moved to Sydney in 1979 to do nursing - Polly. We are looking forward to that. I am sure a few laughs will be had.

From there onto Tamworth to see some friends, then Tenterfield for a day or two to rest up prior to returning home. Maybe a game or two of golf to get my eye back in and get rid of any rusty bits!!

Home soon
Love Di and Robin
