Lots to catch up on
Hallway at Katy's
Katy, John and Casino Miniature Train
More time to catch up with Katy over a very welcome healthy breakfast. Before continuing north, we went with Katy to ride on the little train in Casino which included a visit to the railway museum. The trains looked very realistic, though actually powered by diesel car engines. On the return journey a busload of seniors joined us. I guess the local golfers are used to being madly waved at by busloads of full-sized people perched on a tiny train. Anyway, they waved good-naturedly back.
Katy had suggested we go from Kyogle to Rathdowney via the Risk road, aka the Lions road. My faithful GPS, Jane, didn't want us to go this way at all, suggesting four preferable ways of getting there! She was ruthlessly over-ruled, and, though this route was really fun, and an interesting, spectacular roller-coaster of a trip, I can see why a prudent GPS wouldn't recommend it
We stopped for lunch in Beaudesert, To my horror, we had to eat at Maccas as not much was open on Sunday. As it turned out, the noodle salad with grilled chicken was as yummy and healthy as anything I've eaten since leaving home!
It didn't seem so far to get from there to our Brisbane family, but we were rather misled by one of our competing GPS's (modesty prevents me saying which) and eventually got there the roundabout way. It was very nice to see J. in the drive waving at us having talked us there by phone!
The boys had a lot of organising to do for their hike. Dinner was at a nearby Indian Restaurant and we watched "New tricks" before bed.
