Monday 26th Sept - Cowra to Rylstone

Today we pulled out of the Cowra Van Park with the intention of heading to Muswellbrook before heading north on the quest of enjoying the last week of our holiday. Heading up the Belong Valley Way we pulled off main road to check out little historic town Carcoar (pr. car-cor). Ron P did a U turn to park the car - JanG walking past heard a hissing noise - Ooops! Here’s the next challenge. RonP has a tyre rapidly deflating, presumably caused when he did the tight U turn. The girls made morning tea while the boys changed the tyre which we found had a150mm long split revealing wires. After a half hour we went walking through the little historic town which had virtually nothing open. The Anglican church was opened for us and we enjoyed looking around this very old building. On to the School Of Arts building where we had a look at an amazing painting done direct onto the back wall of the stage. It depicts what Carcoar looked like a hundred years ago. Passing through Blayney, we saw a TyrePower so Ron took the opportunity to get a new tyre and have it put on the van rather than on the spare. After lunch we continued on this magnificent drive til we came to the tiny town of Sofala. This town has quite narrow streets and even has warning signs about the narrow roads for tourists. Our stopover for tonight is at Rylstone a small town just a couple of kms from Kandos. They are so close that the tourist info refers to them as a joint town. The caravan park is very small but the showers were clean and water hot. (Except Jan showered at the same time as others and suffered for the lack of hot water pressure). The night was very cold - 3deg, but we survived.
