Day 20

Thursday 20th February 
Got up early, packed the last of our stuff into the cub and wagon as Garry will be coming home soon to sleep. I have been using the flat down stairs and this is where Garry sleeps as its the coolest room in the house.
Left at 9.30 am heading for Lake Yarrie, which is over by Narrabri, Sandy arrived before us as she left from Quirindi. We got to Narrabri and filled the wagon up, I asked as to where Lake Yarrie turn off was, the girl told me, but we took a wrong turn, ended up 50 km out of our way heading to Coonabarraban, on our way back I kept trying to ring Sandy but no coverage until nearly at Narrabri, finally Sandy got the call and she is heading out of Lake Yarrie, the place is¬†plagued¬†by¬†midges, so we said that’s it, meet us at the servo and we’ll decide where to from here. Had lunch and a break, decided we’ll head off to Rocky Creek, not far from Bingara. Called into the Sawn Rocks, found that the walk was to far at this time of day and also very hot. Could not find any Rocky Creek camping spot, so we finally found a spot called Glacier Historical Site, so this will do us all, as it was already getting later than we like to be on the road. With a look around, it’s very nice, rock pools and amazing rock formations. Once we were all set up, Sandy got the bus level we all had a cuppa and tea was soon on the go. There are a few¬†midges¬†here but not to bad, just got to keep using the¬†repellents.

Day 18

Tuesday 18th February

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.
