SUNDAY 12 MAY CHARLEVILLE
Finished reading the papers from yesterday.
Went for a walk around the streets. Charleville is a pleasant town, we think. It certainly feels safe to walk about in. We have found this to be the case with most outback towns, but not all.
Dating from the 1860’s, Charleville has some really interesting old buildings, but we enjoyed walking and just looking at the houses, particularly the older weatherboard ones. Some of these had quaint little shade structures built over the top of their wndows, to shade them from the sun – from the days before canvas blinds and the like.
