At rest at Hughendon

Have lurked around Hughendon today not doing a lot. Leanne enjoyed her time getting the washing done and Russell spent an hour or so in the local cemetry checking out the grave sites self guided tour. Otherwise we went for a bit of shopping and took in  the street art in the town.  Some dinosaur replicas on display in the street, including the Leanneasaurus a Pteradactyl found in the area and here made out of nuts, bolts and some wire.

We have now given the Weber Q a run with a batch of beer bread and some sausages. The sausages were great but the beer bread a bit underdone, but a good first try. There is a bit of a story about getting the Weber to go, got something to do with having to have the right fittings for gas bottles and their unavailability out here. The Eels jumper also got a run tonight.

Weather continues to be quite hot during the day and cool at night. We move on tomorrow and commence the return journey, next night is Aramac.

A Leanneasaurus in flight. It was named after the wife of its maker.

This is a highlight of the social calendar in Richmond and the surrounding towns. One can only imagine the opportunities that arise at this event.
