On the road

 today I drove from Wodonga to Gilgandra....via Gundagai...mmm yes I took a wrong turn and ended up driving around in a bit of a half circle, probably for an hour longer than I needed to , but I did see some beautiful scenery on the way, drove through a thunder storm and heavy rain, saw a beautiful sunset and finally found a morel room....had a bit of a panic there. I stopped in Dubbo and every motel room was booked, I was told to come to Gilgandra to get a room the first motel was fully booked, this one I am at initially said they were fully booked but then found they had one empty...thank goodness!

This was at one look out,  a bit hard to see but it looked like some kind of mine over the road, maybe one that is no longer active.

Thunder storm coming (not a good photo)

More of the thunder storm

Amazing clouds as I was driving along, I did stop driving to take the photo😁
Tonight I have continued sewing these wool circles, these are a secret sewing project, shhhh! 😄
Tomorrow I will be back on the road and by lunchtime I will be at Baradine, yay!
Off to do a few more stitches. 
Happt stitching.

You have to drive a long long way to get to where you're going!! But I suppose that is Australia, a continent in itself. I can understand how very relieved you were to have found somewhere to stay. Good roads tomorrow. Have fun

Sue - glad you made it safely so far AND found a motel room. Maybe start taking a tent with you? HA! The photos of the storm clouds are marvelous. Look forward to hearing (and seeing) more of the secret (shhhh) project!
