Rhiannon cooking

Information on Slim Dusty

His family's land

The home...Slim Dusty's

Waking up to a little rain gave us hope that today we may do a few things ....we decided to drive to Kempsey as this is the home town of Slim Dusty and Tom Kennealy.

We went to the tourist information centre in Kempsy and thid kids had their first introduction to Slim Dusty and I wandered into the art exhibition.

We then drove for an hour out of Kempsey town centre to Slim Dusty's childhood home. It was rather run down and the ground around the home somewhat unkempt.

Liam then did time tables on the way back into Kempsey town centre where we went in search of a Slim Dusty CD. I went in search of craft items...beads for the girls and other things to keep them occupied whilst it rains!!!

On leaving a shop we encountered the rain again and so I went and got the car whilst the others waited under shelter before we drove back to the cp. The rain was so hard that at one stage I felt that I had to stop the car as visibility was nil.

We sat inside the van and I feeling cooped up took Sara for a wander in the local shops. As it was raining we drove first to Trial Bay and had some quiet time together watching the dolphins in the ocean.It was a special time for me to spend it with Sara and listen to her thoughts. We returned in time to watch Rhiannon cook spaghetti bolognaise for dinner.

We enjoyed our dinner and then again went to bed early...at least the kids did!!!!
