Now at Parkes

We are about to leave Parkes for Canberra.

Left Goondiwindi to a beautiful clear sunny day after a rather windy and rainy night. We made good time down the Newell to Coonabarabran. Along the way we watched the rain clouds gathering and we arrived just in time to catch the rain as we set up for the night. Not too bad though and the rain is certainly needed despite the dams seemingly full in these parts and the fields green with the spring crops coming along nicely. Yesterday we again set off in bright sunshine for the run down to Parkes. A slight detour took us through The Wurrumbungles which are slowly recovering from the devastating fires at the start of the year. The Australian bush though is remarkable. The various types of gum trees were totally shredded by the fires but they are now sprouting new growth and the ground is covered with new shoots  and wild flowers.

Arriving in Parkes the clouds again were gathering but they didn’t come to anything and we had our first dry night.
