Day 66

Wednesday 6th May

Well we went for a drive, the storm has passed , we still have rain and the annex cant go anywhere now. Went to Stanley to see a photo our friend has put into the Cow & Calf Gallery, photography fine art, really lovely art. Got to meet David the owner and Photographer. Next door is the Brown Dog cafe, where we went to have some morning tea, lovely old and unique place. Just loved both their names and there is a story behind the Brown dog but didn’t find out if there was a story behind the gallery name.

Day 16

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.:)

IMG_7659  This Plough Inn is at Burning Mountain, Wingen on the New England Highway, between Scone and Murrurundi.IMG_7661  The Plough Inn is built around the tree, it’s a real quaint place with beautiful food.IMG_7662 IMG_7663 IMG_7669 IMG_7672 Back at Murrurundi this evening and my son yelled out to me to get the camera quick, beautiful rainbow.
