At the moment I'm sitting in my 'home' in Gundagai after just having breakfast.
We spent another few days in Little Hartley, house sitting which we enjoyed. Rose and John lent us their ute so that we didn't have to take our 'homes' to Jenolan Caves which was great as the road was very windy and in some parts quite narrow. The cave were an experience I'm glad I didn't miss. There are quite a few of them but we only did a tour of one. It's unbelievable what is underground and I'm sure there are more but who knows where!!
The next day we went to Lithgow to do some shopping - boooring. After doing some housework we left Little Hartley and went to a free park close to Oberon ( which is between Little Hartley and Bathurst ). This 'park' is close to the Fish River and is a very popular spot for the locals. It was quite busy because it was Saturday but a great spot.
Next was Taralga which is just north of Goulburn. We stayed at the showgrounds and when we arrived there was a Gymkana on, so the dogs went a bit crazy with all the horses. After the horses had left a farmer decided to leave some sheep in the showgrounds so we were constantly being serenaded!! Baaaa Baaaaa. Not only were there sheep but lots and lots of frogs who were somewhere in the creek so as you can imagine sleep didn't come easily. Apart from that Taralga is quite an old town with lots of the old buildings still standing. Had lunch at the local which was very pleasant.
On Monday we drove to Canberra. We paid $25 for a bus tour of the city, which was terrific. You hopped on and off the bus whenever you liked and the ticket lasted 24 hours so you could continue the tour the next day. We visited the usual places, National Art Gallery, Old Parliament House ( didn't bother with the new one ), National Museum and the Australian War Memorial and drove past the Embassies and Prime Ministers Residence. All very educational and more interesting than I anticipated. We couldn't see the War memorial on Tuesday cos Queen Liz was there and the crowd was unbelievable so we went on Wednesday
The weather wasn't the best, wet, cold and windy and of course we are are not used to it. We left there yesterday and drove to Gundagai where the weather was much better. we might stay 2 nights as I want to do washing and housework yuk.
