Moree to Walgett
I had an excellent night’s sleep last night and was feeling relaxed and ready to go travelling again. The only attractive landscapeon our way was in a little section with red soil, the bush became very green. We are still going through the cotton growing region, with little white tufts along both sides of the road as the trucks take bales of cotton to the gins.
We saw this little cafe in a village so small it was the cafe, a house and a school. The cafe has very long opening hours (until 9.00 p.m.) to cater for trucks, but also provides a place for mothers to come after dropping their older kids off at school. There is also a school bus service for children coming from further away. It appears to cater for the children as well with little bags of lollies and unhealthy fried food.
We arrived in Walgett at about 3.00 p.m. Not much to set up when we free camp, just the mat and our chairs, plus the clothes airer for wet towells.
Choir rehearsal for our friends is just starting, whilst for us it is 8.40 p.m.
