Eugowra to Parkes
Cummulative totals = 795km and 20,796km
Spicer Caravan Park = $10 unpowered
Well here we are in Parkes ... again - we came here 4 years ago and have returned as Kouta has an appointment with a vet to get some prednisolone tablets for his allergies to the caravan park grass. Little did he know this morning when he woke up where we were going and why!
We passed by the little general store to drop of the key for the amenities at the showgrounds and on the side of the building are some lovely murals depicting what Eugowra is famous for and that is the largest gold robbery in Australian history. Beside the mural is a brief explanation ...
The down hill to Parkes wasn't really there, well at least you didn't really notice it since it was gradual.
Parkes is a nice town and we arrive early around 11.30am. We are at the council caravan park and we stayed here before. It is a lovely park with a small kitchen (fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and washing up area), the amenities are spotless and this park backs onto a rugby field
I must admit if we come through again we will definitely stop here - we hadn't intended to go to Parkes we only came for the vet.
Speaking of the vet ... Kouta thought he was going for a lovely ride this afternoon and couldn't believe his luck that he could walk into an airconditioned shop ... until he realised that, to him, it was a bad place! The vet did nothing to him so I don't know why he panicked and was edging to get out. But he got his drugs so he is happy.
