Most of the travellers at the Terracotta Cafe - Murrumburrah

We couldn't believe it - we also ran into Tony Xerri at the Terracotta Cafe - Murrumburrah
(actually a figurine behind the counter)

Some of the ladies setting up "Happy Hour" at the Coolamon motel - Claire M/ Tracey/ Cherryle/ Gayle/ Claire B ... always an important event!

More Happy Hour(s)

Next morning - few of the cars at the Coolamon Motel on a frosty morning. Coolamon is a delightful country town with a wonderful wide main street.
Our tour leader Graham Brohan made sure we had good things to see & do and of course there was a hotel right alongside the motel where we had a great dinner.
Unfortunately John & Angie Blake were not well and had to return home.

This is the Coolamon Fire Museum - a wonderful collection of fire fighting memorabilia in the middle of the main street.

Cussie and Peter McEwan (ACT Co-ordinator) at the motor museum part of the Chocolate and Licorice Factory.
Mostly petrol heads visited this part of the precinct. The owner was very much a Ford enthusiast.

Blakey, Bob and Cussie looking at the fabulous collection of petrol lawn mowers and outboards. The one that Bob is pointing at is brand new old stock.
It has never been started (rather unkindly Bob Fast, when told by Bob Watters said - "that's not unusual, I have lots of mowers that won't start!!)

This 1975 Norton Commando is for sale with a reported 104 miles on the clock (asking $40,000 ?)

Day 2 on the way to Narrandera - after travelling through Binalong the day before, we were surprised how green the pastures
and road verges were. It's not widespread but at least somebody had received some rain!

Here we are at Leeton where we met up with Kevin & Helen Lehman.

Kevin & Helen Lehman hosted us in their daughter's Leeton Cafe - where we had a special room in the adjacent building - Many Thanks!

This was the CHRISTMAS IN JULY dinner at Limone Dining 482 Banna Ave Griffith - It was a great night and more photos on THIS LINK

This is in Colleambally on day 3 - where we saw the Bucyrus Class Dragline used to scrape out irrigation canals. It has been preserved
as a memorial to the region's agricultural beginnings. SEE DETAILS ON THE WEB

The ladies managed to operate the drag line but only found this litter nearby!

Lunch at Corowa in the whisky distillery and chocolate factory.

Head Distiller Beau Schilg sets up the whisky tasting (the image has been cropped to protect the identities of the swillers tasters.)

Cherryle demonstrating the beautiful balmy morning at Rutherglen (I don't think!)

Snow still on the ground around the Watters' TR3 near Kiandra on the trip home.
