The Veronica chronicles: Tenterfield to Gloucester

Today was about sustenance. A day’s driving negotiating the western edge of a huge rain system required as much. What better way to start than with a BIG breakfast in Tenterfield.

And so it began. In Glen Innes, TC snagged her first kookaburra photograph.

At Guyra, it was time for a cup of tea. Just as well we came prepared with a thermos as all the residents of Guyra (including the cafe operators) were being sensible on this soggy Sunday and not venturing out into the street. .

We found more sustenance further south in Walcha in the form of hot chocolate and chai latte. There is quite an affection for motor cycles and other things metal in this town.

TC was working the iPhone late into the afternoon as we began to negotiate the curves around the mountain. The saturated rock faces were liberating more than the occasional small obstacles as we made our way through the Barrington Tops landscape towards tonight’s destination of Gloucester.

It was definitely worth it for this late afternoon view.
