After the drama of the night before, we had a great night's sleep at the Railway Hotel in Peterborough and woke at 0630 hours to beautiful sun on the magnificent sandstone buildings of SA and a hearty brekkie of bacon (almost a whole porker!) and eggs and then off .....on the road again!
Back of Railway pub. Been in operation since 1869.
Our motel accomm at the back of the pub.We opted for this as opposed to wending our way up the stairs of the pub with heavy bags. Don't ya just love these buildings. Love the mural on the cabinet makers.
We had a great trek back and covered 10+ hours of driving today. It was great to see green fields after all the scrub lands and sage brush, but it was also a reminder that the journey was coming to and end....and back to the workaday week soon.
As we trekked through the environs of Peterborough and down to Burra, we came across the big wind farms in SA. Very impressive and they are still putting more up.
To my erstwhile skeptical mechanics at Euromotorsport - Myrtle the Merc made it - and never missed a beat the whole way. What a gal! There is still life in her yet. She is now due for a service as I note that after two weeks of solid driving, the oil is starting to look a little black! She was serviced before I went and is now due after two weeks for another one!
And many thanks to Claire for being my travelling buddy; it made the long journey much shorter and we had a lot of laughs along the way.
See you next trip.....whatever that may be!!!
