heading back to the dry country again

Back to harsh reality, dry, inland roads ...

Through the windscreen; turning right, and just  3 kms to Quambone.  The marshes country is but a distant memory by now and only about 18 klms away.  

So what's at Quambone then?  Well you could buy a quaint ole' post office  for just $75,000.00, or if you've a cool $5.5 million tucked away, you might like 8,0000 or so hectares (almost 20,0000 acres), with a C1928 homestead and more, all within 12 klms.


As we drove round the corner this picket fence caught my eye, and a quaint weatherboard church. 


It was St. Pauls Anglican Church, and I'm wondering if that's not the inner of a washing-machine for the potted cactus?  There was identical one,  the other side of the gate too.

Welcome to "the smallest Library" Quambone, N.S.W., this wide.  

...and that deep.  Shame it wasn't open on the day.

back to the ute, and onwards shall we?

Cattle truck ahead and ominous skies

Slow down ..cattle out for some dry pickings on the roadside verges

Herefords, with a bit of a teaser on the other side of the fence wouldn't you say?

Not too different to the marvellous scenes we have passed through over the last week....

We live in a wondrous and big country.

"the smallest library"..cool, now you're doing my thing. I had several "smallest chapels" on my lists and funny, I never made it to even one. But didn't have a single library listed. I'll have to search one out in the States here. Love that country of yours.

Love the church and library! Both are quite small. I'm not quite up to $5.5 million yet. I've only put away about $4 million so far. :-)

Das sieht nach Wärme aus, die bei uns fehlt, es ist kalt und regnerisch.
