Tamworth woke up beautiful this morning!
So beautiful that I went for a run to a Google-recommended cafe where I had a fabulous breakfast
Then went to the bike shop and had my loose chain tightened.
Next job of the day was to go to Tamworth’s major big thing:
And then to the motorcycle museum, which is tiny and looks closed, but is packed with old bikes in amazing condition. I was so busy juggling my free coffee & talking to the guide that I only took one photo:
I got on the road around 11 & headed towards Gilgandra (I abandoned my Cobar plan as the logistics got too hard – I think an outback trip needs to be done separately and not in summer). Most of the day looked like this:
I stopped in Coonabarabran for lunch & took a photo of the sky:
The run to Gilgandra got hotter the further west I went so I was glad to get there, turn around & head back east, where it was only 32 in Mudgee. On the way I found another big thing in Dunedoo:
I’m close enough now that I could get home tomorrow. Though I think there is a motorcycle museum at one of the wineries here so I’ll play it by ear & sort it out in the morning.
