Wednesday May 31st

There was not a lot to photograph along the way today so the pics are all taken at the Long Waterhone near Winton.

The Billabong is dry where I am but I can see a sparkle of water further down. This will do me for a night or two though. I put the awning out but that brought some wind  and, as I can't get into where the ropes are stored, I wound it in again. Maybe I'll need it out in the morning.

Steve will be pleased I had a cheese and bacon pie and a coffee at the Bakery in Winton!

It's quite warm up here - 34c inside Yemmy right now. I just spoke to my daughter who is in my house at the moment and they are off to Ararat in the morning to buy some warm clothes!

Picture time:

I saw this big rig on the way in to the campsite. It looked huge with the slide-out out and would have a lot more room inside than Yemmy.

A bit hard to see from the pic but I can get a lot (I think 15) channels just using the little powered indoor antenna - every thing except the ABC and that's what I normally watch!

If I was staying a long time I'd put up my outside antenna but it's not worth it just for one night or maybe two

You can see how parched the ground is in this pic of my nearest neighbors

Here's Yemmy's patch of dirt!

 I'm sure I heard Yemmy muttering again as we traversed the lovely smooth road into our site!

This is just to reassure Steve that I'm getting enough to eat!

Last day of winter and I'm home! Yes - yesterday was the last day of my 2017 trip although I'm heading back to northern NSW in Oct...
