13/6/2017. Wee waa to Goondiwindi

It's 4.45pm, 22 degrees, and I'm sitting outside the van typing. This is only the second time since we left Anne and Ian on the 7th May that we have been able to sit out, and we are so enjoying it. We're at a free camp at Goondiwindi at Redmond Park, which the Council are trying out for 6 months, it having been operating for 2 months now. Last night there were 12 vans/motor homes here and tonight there are 9, but it's still early. We arrived at 3.30 and got the last legal spot - yesterday they were all taken by 2pm. There is a 2 hour parking spot that 2 motor homes used last night. Well done Goondiwindi.

We had an early start this morning, and after crossing through Mt. Kaputar National Park, which was our first mountain encounter since leaving Adelaide, and it was a beauty, our first stop was Bingera where we stretched our legs and Ian bought a sausage roll from the pie shop. It was only an 8/10.....too salty. We had early lunch in a park which had orange trees planted along 2 sides. What a good idea! On the drive from Warialda to Goondiwindi, the section between Ironbark Dam Camp and North Arm was the most diverse and spectacular stretch we've done on this trip. Although the road left a lot to be desired, the cloudy sky was beautiful with an enormous contrail, and over each hill or around every bend was an amazing picture. We live in such a beautiful country.

We checked out the North Arm Sports Club for an overnight stay, but there was no-one there, so Ian decided to come on to Goondiwindi, which proved to be an excellent decision.
