Went for a drive to Quirindi, about 40 min drive North from Murrurundi NSW to catch up with a friend and had lunch together. Lovely old buildings and lots of history in the area, everyone’s so friendly, you just smile at them and they say hello.
Fields of Milo. I am lead to believe that the small spider is the male, this was on the fence when I was shooting the Milo field. This is a real rail car 🙂 Silo’s at Willow Tree. Oppppps, here comes the train. We waited for trains to come while at the Silo’s and we were rewarded with two. And now the third one, I just managed to squeeze between the looked gate so as not to get the wire in my photo. On our way back we have noticed how green it has got with just 3 day’s of rain, wonderful for the farmers. Photo of the walk bridge for when the ford is to deep to walk across at Murrurundi.

We had to go into Scone again today and on our way home we did some tiki-touring, up to the Tewarri NP, very nice, camping, big sites, toilets, lots of shade and water in creek when there’s water. On our way back also we came across a big wide load, took both sides of the road and had 3 Prime movers pulling it and 2 Prime movers pushing, didn’t realize how long it was until it started to pass, so I got what shots I could.
One of the many land marks in the National Park of Tewarri. Another dry river. Quick shot as these birds all flew off, didn’t now they were there until I saw them fly. Going up to the Tewarri National Park, lots of farms all the way up. Rock formations.. Wombat up in the area of Washpool camping. These are very interesting, read the notice below. A very wide load. Amazing site, what a job getting this wide load thru some of the windy roads.
Friday 14th-Sunday 16th February
Well it’s been very wet since Thursday night so not a lot happening, also the town I’m in had contaminated water so we are relying on tank water.Not allowed to even wash our dishes or drink it, even the animals are not to drink it. The council is doing everything they can and handing out bottled water, so decided to go to my youngest sons place for the weekend. Was good catching up with family down where he lives. On our way home I called into the Plough Inn and was really taken with what the ladies do, they cater for Gluten Free and Vegetarian meals, as I am Gluten intolerant it is awesome to come across a shop such as the Plough Inn out in the middle of know where and are able to have a feed. They are next to a Antique shop, here are a couple of photos from the weekend.:)
This Plough Inn is at Burning Mountain, Wingen on the New England Highway, between Scone and Murrurundi. The Plough Inn is built around the tree, it’s a real quaint place with beautiful food. Back at Murrurundi this evening and my son yelled out to me to get the camera quick, beautiful rainbow.
