|Tuesday 23rd Aug at Bigriggen
Had a fair few hours of light rain overnight and this morning was quite foggy. Ron fetched water from the community tank for washing up etc, then hooked up the solar panel to provide some support to the caravan battery. Unfortunately it is was fully clouded over when we went into Rathdowney to update the blog and check emails.
Jan was most impressed by the quality of the manned Information Centre. It had a large number of gifts for sale and a comprehensive range of literature on The Scenic Rim area. While we had telephone connection we made a booking for the “4Real” Robotic Dairy tour for Thursday. The concept has caught our interest since we heard the owner interviewed on radio. After a Weiss bar each and a wander through the historical displays, we headed back to Bigriggen for a late lunch and some rest time.
The early afternoon was quite sunny but as the afternoon progressed, more and more clouds formed. Rain started during the late evening and continued steadily throughout the night.
