TRAVEL BLOG

This was to be our new web site which we have taken over from Donna Barker of deeswax.com.au.  Unfortunately the person who we have paid to do this work has let us down very badly and the site is now a mess with links back to his computer which I suspect has had a major malfunction.  We have been waiting patently in excess of one month for this work to be completed without result.

Our Travels.

We left home on Sunday 28th March and travelled up to the Blue Mountains where we met up with my Daughter Michele and her family.  Overnighting in the car park of the zig-zag railway we carried on to Orange to meet with our latest great grand daughter just three weeks old.  The following day we carried on to Grenfell and had a pleasant meal with Margaret’s daughter Heather.  Company’s Dam was just out of Grenfell and we spent a couple of nights there getting more accustomed to our recently aquired motor home.  I took a series of pictures  as it was incredibly still with beautiful reflections in the water.

We had intended going to Young to see Margaret’s Sister Helen but she was off to Sydney for a few days so we decided to have a look at Lake Cargelligo instead. A truly beautiful spot made much better by the presence of water in the lake (it has been dry for the last three years).

Leaving Lake Cargelligo we travelled to Deniliquin to attend the 25th CMCA Rally with just over 1000 other motorhomers. Margaret had planned to do some Encaustic Art classes but she fell sick with a bronchial complaint and was unable to fulfull her comitments.  We did however have a stall at the Open/Market day on the Saturday and five people purchased kits to enable them to start their Encaustic journey painting with beeswax.  We also sold a lot of surplus equipment at the trash and treasure day sale.

We have stayed in Deniliquin for an extra week enjoying the hospitatility of the Showground facilities.  A new Toshiba laptop computer was purchased from Harvey Norman but unfortunately that failed to load properly on its’ second day of use and we are now awaiting for it to be re-loaded.
