Woke up to a solid frost at the free camp after one of the best and most restful nights in ages. I tried my luck with the camera but didn't land any spectacular sunrise captures. Had our usual breakfast despite the lack of mains power and were ready to hit the road about 0700.
Change of plan, we've decided to drop in on Nat and the Family in Queanbeyan so we continue on the Kings Highway and don't travel towards Goulburn as originally planned. The run into Queanbeyan was uneventful and we stopped for a cuppa with Nat and also dropped off a sick computer that they will take to the technician who built it for an overhaul.
We continued through Canberra and headed towards Yass along the Barton Highway. We then joined the Hume Freeway and travelled southward to Coolac. Here we navigated our way along a reasonable country road to Cootamundra arriving at the caravan park just after 1100. Powered sites are $30 per night which reflects the general increase in prices and is probably why regular travellers are spending more and more nights at wayside rest stops.
All set up by lunch time and kicked back for a few hours until it was time to visit Jenny's brother who has recently moved here. He and his wife have a lovely home with plenty of yard to indulge her passion for gardening. Had a lovely dinner and drank a little too much wine.
