Stayed 2 nights at a place called Toongi which is 26 kms south of Dubbo, NSW. The camping area is open and huge and there was only 1 other family camping there.
It rained on the first day but weather cleared up on day 2 and so did Nette’s mood. She is so not a rain and cold weather person 🙂
We visited Dubbo Gaol where the kids experienced solitary confinement and played around a bit. Aaqib took part in a play at the Gaol in which he assisted a convict escape the prison. He was so stoked.
We tried to get the projector to work at night but (I think) the fuel in the generator was dirty and so the projector kept cutting out. I also didn’t have any sound from the projector so have to work that one out later. It was so cold at night that I got out of bed around 6AM and went into the car with the heater on. It was a great idea leaving all the doona’s behind to save on storage. I am sure Nette won’t let me forget it.
Met a lovely family from Carlingford. People think we are crazy for camping with 4 kids but the Johnston’s were doing it with 6 kids including a 3 month old baby. Good on you Sean and Colleen for proving it can and should be done.
Finney got her birthday present and we drove around with Happy Birthday Finney on the car all day.
Finally, after the sunset at Dubbo we set off to Broken Hill.
