Heading for Bellata was delayed as we stopped for a coffee at the Royal Hotel in Binnaway, the site of the 1957 movie “The Shiralee”
We set up camp at the Bellata golf course after a leisurely 200km trip with a stop for some supplies in Coonabarabran and lunch in Narrabri, amongst some shady trees along the edge of the fairway, just far enough away from errant golf balls.
A flat tyre on my push bike was a slight annoyance, pumped it up and went for a ride around town. After coming back a closer inspection showed there was two or three spiky seedsfrom Bindi weed stuck in the tread. Removing one confirmed the worst, tyre went flat almost immeadiately.
Saturday night at the golf club was spit roast night and a hearty meal was had by a heap of very friendly locals and about a dozen grey nomads who were made most welcome.
Queensland beckons for us tommorow
