I’m Back!

Our nomadic life was a great adventure that enriched our life so much. We met some wonderful people, although we may never see them again, they will be etched in our memories forever!

The beauty of Australia is never ending! The towns we visited were very welcoming, except for one, well life isn’t perfect, and we were not about to let that upset our experience.

We ventured on The Spirit of Tasmania to visit family and found that we felt very much at home on this little island.

So, almost twelve months later, here we are now Taswegian’s! The caravan has been sold, and we are once again homeowners and settled once again!

I have since signed up to the University of Tasmania (UTAS) studying for a Diploma of Family History and loving it! I have gained so much knowledge and can’t wait to unpack my mountains of family history paperwork and books, once again!.

So, from now I will be blogging about my daily/weekly happenings.

There will be a bit of family history, Tasmanian history, Town history and some ramblings of what is happening.

On The Road Again.

We had a lovely time with family over Easter. Archie and Nash had so much fun at Cambewarra with the horses and splashing in the creek.

I love family time. ❤️

Darlene and I visited Aunty Beryl, our maternal matriarch. She looked well and said she was settling into her new home.

We enjoyed Yum Cha for lunch. It has been years since I enjoyed a Yum Cha.

Muriel guarded our home whilst we camped at Cambewarra. Thanks Muriel!

We went back to Jugiong again whilst waiting for our mirrors to arrive at Ian’s Auto Shop at Goulburn.

On the road again.

Still camping at Jugiong

Our stay at Jugiong Showground has been a relaxing one. Each day we meet someone new all with a common interest.

It was rather cool today and a bit on the windy side too. Not many of us nomads out and about. I think most of the men were watching the cricket and the ladies relaxing doing what they enjoy.

We went for a trip to Gundagai to do some washing and stock up on some food as we are not sure how long we will be here. It is so peaceful.

Here is a building that was built with blood, sweat and tears. It must be over 160 years old. Unfortunately it has not found someone to put the work into it to restore it to its former glory. A beautiful masterpiece of stonework.

Across the road from the show ground are a couple of shops and they are very busy with travellers. The Long Track Pantry is a cafe which sells nice coffee and beautiful food.  On Tuesdays they have a cooking school. I don’t know what they were cooking but the aroma got my saliva glands all stirred up!  They make various products. I purchased a beautiful dressing. Anyway, have a look at their website www.longrrackpantyr.com.au  and have a look at their recipes, you’ll find them under BLOG.

There is also a great fruit and veg shop too. Gino’s Fruit and Veg. They share some beautiful recipes too. You will find them on his web page too. http://www.ginosfruitandveg.com.au/recipes/

And last but by no means least there is the Jugiong Wine Cellar where I purchased a nice red…Quarry Hill 2013 Lost Acre Tempranillo……….delisiooooo!!! The website www.jugiongcellars.com

Well, stay safe and happy travels!!
