Finley to West Wyalong

Wednesday - 19 May 2015

Fine and sunny this morning however showers were predicted for later in the day.

We were packed up and on the road by 10:00 am after picking up some papers in Finley before we left. Just north of Jerilderie we had to negotiate a large mob of cattle being driven along the road. At about 12:00 we stopped in Narrandera for a morning coffee with raisin toast at the Narrandera Bakery. As it is our fast day we only had one slice each! On the way back to our parking spot we realised the we had parked outside the Narrandera Tiger Moth Museum, so we had a look see. Narrandera was a training base for RAAF pilots during World War 11 using Tiger Moth aeroplanes.

We stopped for fuel on the way into West Wyalong and made our way to the local Showgrounds. A powered site here was $20.00 - a little dearer than Finley. As TV reception was less than desired it was out with the dish, but we only have free to air as our Foxtel box is on the blink. Foxtel have mailed us a replacement box but it will not catch up with us until the Gold Coast.

Some very heavy cloud passed over us as we set up but thankfully no rain as yet. The showgrounds are a training track for local pacers, and a couple of two-year olds were being trialled. They have not raced yet but the owner is hopeful that they are good enough to make it in the City, as yet they have not been named.
