Sep 4, 2016 - Fathers Day in Warialda

Sunday 4th Fathers Day in Warialda A nice warmer day to wake to and we went to the Warialda Presbyterian Church which has only a congregation of 15 very welcoming people. They share the taking of the service between about 10 of the congregation. I do feel sorry for them as they soldier on and try so very hard to keep their church going. They were so friendly and so glad to have us there. Ron was speaking to the chap called Peter who took today's service. He is an old farmer who lives about 35 ks out of town and he was actually very good and...

Sep 4, 2016 - in Warialda - Father’s Day

Sunday 4th Sept - in Warialda - Father’s Day HAVE ADDED PIS FOR 20TH THROUGH TO 4TH Up early at 7:30 to do the washing, but a bit delayed waiting for the caretaker to come and get a wayward machine going. Happy Fathers Day all you dads. Gobble some breakfast and off to church at 10:00am. We were made most welcome by the 11 folk in the congregation at St Stephen’s Presbyterian. The service was taken by a retired farmer who travels in from Inverell each week and takes his turn doing the service. It was very thought-provoking talking to them...

Sep 3, 2016 - A Day in Texas

Saturday 3rd September A day in Texas We awoke this morning in our free stay beside the Dumaresq River after a wild night of heavy rain and gusty blustery winds. We walked around Texas which we really enjoyed as they have a great little art gallery and also a very good display of the 2011 floods which overwhelmed the town. They tell us they actually had no rain to speak of but all the water came down from the north. There is also a lovely art and craft shop and a shop that stocks everything imaginable from clothes, candles, camping gear,...

Sep 3, 2016 - Texas to Warialda

Saturday 3rd Sept - Texas to Warialda In the morning we prepared the vans for travel then head into town to await the opening of the Art Gallery. The boys want to see the photos taken during the 2011 floods. The town, up on a rise, was totally surrounded by a lake of flood water. After the gallery we headed off to look at the old Rabbit Freezing Works. They were an initiative in the 1930s to help the town to beat the effects of the depression sweeping the world. RonG’s dad worked there installing the diesel power plant which supplied power...

Mar 11, 2014 - Cranki Rock

When we arrived in Warialda we stopped for lunch and checked out a camp area called Cranki Rock, which came up on "Wiki Camps", at the info centre. We liked the sound of it so we decided to go there. It is only 6 km out of Warialda to the east and although we are heading south, that is something nothing. The road from the highway in is only 3 km but it was very corrugated so very slow but it was worth it. Once again we were the only ones staying but this time there was a caretaker there, at least at night although he works in town during...

Nov 9, 2006 - Working as an au pair

Ok, so finally I should be able to update this blog as I have finished working as an au pair and am now in Brisbane. Let's see... I forgot to mention that I saw an albatross whilst whale watching, it was pretty cool - I was just about to ask one of the crew if it was an albatross when the captain said, 'Here's an albatross'. Anyway, on Wednesday 8th November I got a train at 10am to Tamworth from Sydney Central station. It was very nice, we went through the Blue Mountains (which I could see properly this time!) and also Hunter Valley (one...
