Western Plains

Dubbo, Australia

We arrived in Dubbo about 2.30pm yesterday after travelling from West Wyalong. We found a caravan park close to the city which allowed us to shower and refresh. I found the library late last night but ran out of time to update the blog. We had a nice evening in Dubbo and enjoyed vegetable soup for dinner. After a good nights sleep we packed up and headed for the Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo. We took our bikes but Glenn still doesnt have one so he hired a fairly daggy bike and we rode around the zoo twice. We managed to see the Hippotomus being fed and the frozen icypoles (combination of blood and milk) being given to the Lions. The monkeys kept us entertained for hours with their antics and it was difficult to see the difference between Caitlin and the monkey. We are off to Gilgandra tonight. We have been staying at caravan parks every three days so we can have a shower and charge up our computers, etc. The other nights we generally stay at road side sidings or truck passes. They prove very comfortable and generally have toilet facilities and are clean.

Caydn and I have read this message several times and we still can't find any 'not for grans eyes' words. Please explain!!!!

Perhaps that is becuase Caydn and yourself don't have pure minds like Grans. I too suffer this trouble but then I saw up above it had the b word - bum.

I'm sorry but I still can't find any words that concern gran! Has anyone let Michelle know that the WHOLE family is catching up with mum for morning tea on Mother's Day?

A person tries to run a sensible blog and has all you dills making inane comments. I do think it would be better to travel to the more difficult countries such as Africa and India when you are young as you can always do the easy bits like Australia when you are older and more informed.
I will try and mind my language for Caydn's and Grans sake.
