SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 15 COWRA TO YASS 140kms
Had a bad pain in upper abdomen during the night – it kept me awake for a while. Same as I’d had a few times before, and a bit worrying in the dark depths of night, when the imagination runs riot.
John’s daughter phoned at breakfast time. Said the boys and their father were at the snowfields until tonight, so we wouldn’t be able to see them until at least Monday. We hadn’t wanted to book into a Canberra caravan park until John had heard from her and when I started making calls, found I couldn’t get into any where until tomorrow. The Floriade Festival was on, of course.
So, after the long days of travel, we had to slow down again. John didn’t want to stay another night at Cowra – which was a good decision, as it turned out. So we left the park at 10.40 am and headed through Boorowa to Yass.
This was a pleasant drive, through pretty country.
We were now into long trousers and appreciating the cooler conditions.
Booked into the Yass Caravan Park. This was adequate for an over-nighter. They had a number of drive-through sites, so we were able to keep the Terios hitched on. The sites were narrow, though, and our neighbours seemed very close. Our site cost $27. There was an oval behind the park, which was excellent for dog exercise. John could only get SBS on TV, though. Not so excellent!
After we’d set up, I noticed Bus was on a slight lean, and the back left tyre was flat. It was, of course, the wheel that I’d run along the stone kerbing yesterday in Dubbo, so I felt really bad. The first flat we’d ever had on Bus, and it was my fault!
Being Sunday, there wasn’t much we could do about it, so decided to leave it till the morning to work out what to do.
Had a pleasant, long walk, around the oval area, with John and dog.
Late in the afternoon there was a light, drizzly rain. A while since we’d had rain – it was almost welcome!
I cooked a chicken stir fry and noodles for tea, and enjoyed it much more than last night’s.
