Aussie Road Trip

How Lucky Can a Gal Get?????

It's Monday evening and DH and I had just finished supper, (We had a kitchenette in the hotel room) and were planning to head off to the movies.

We went to see "Mr. Bean's Holiday". Okay so we like weird humour! For a moment we thought that we'd be the only two in the theatre, which is good as I'm always afraid of getting kicked out of places for laughing too loud. But wait... in comes another couple carrying bicycle parts.

Oh wait... I digress.... Taph calls before we leave for the movie and offers to take me on a road trip throughout the countryside. My answer.... a resounding "YES".

Hmm so either the movie was actually funny or I was in such a good mood that anything could have been funny.

Thursday comes and we are off to explore and shop, get to see new sites and shop, visit new places and shop....again, I digress. First stop Goulburn. Now on my map in small red print under the name of Goulburn are the words "Big Merino".

He is affectionately referred to as "Rocky" and I don't think that Big quite covers it. After the photo shoot we head off to another town and stop at a coffee shop for refreshments. I should at this time point out that I don't have a map and am solely relying on my friend for navigation and transport. But more importantly, I'm still trying to get used to being in the left hand front seat without a steering wheel in front of me and being able to knit. That being said, I'll admit to not being able to remember the name of the second small town.

Next stop, Boorowa to visit Boorowa Wools. The store is only opened on Fridays and Saturdays. This is not turning out to be the shopping trip I had hoped for. But no matter......on to the Boorowa court House Arts & Crafts Co-op for a look around. They had turned an old courthouse into a craft shop...very neat....

On to Which Craft for a spot of lunch in the lovely town of Murrumburrah. I finally got to spend some money there. I bought some red Alpaca for bed socks and some quilting fabric. One piece has a aboriginal print and the other is a print of an Aussie map with Holdens all over it in different colours.

But wait .....let's not forget that this is a trip through the countryside. What this road trip needs is a little scenery.


Did I mention that my camera doesn't do zoom either??????

Okay my last picture for the day....we came across a poor and pitiful creature badly in need of mojo. So out came the Sock.

HMMM come to think of wonder they complained to the TSA about me. Actually I'm surprised they are still speaking to me.

Well gotta run

Yours in Yarn,

Yes, it was sadly lacking in stash enhancement opportunities, but it was fun. :)
