Liz, Mike and the wedding party in Cooma

Enjoyed a great time at Cowra with the Bike Friday Gathering. (You probably saw the photos and read the blurb.)
We’re continuing to have a tremendous time wandering about areas such as Springhurst, Rutherglen, Wangaratta, (all in Victoria) Tumut and Adelong (back in NSW). Then to Cooma.

Spent some time with Alan on his property at Springhurst. We caught up with some of his family and ate some beautiful beef. I gave Alan a hand with emailing so hope that was helpful and that he practises by sending me a bunch of emails over the next little while. We covered quite a bit in the short stay. Also had some time with Margaret and Graham Brown. He is ex WWTC and a keen cyclist (see photo on Bike Friday post.) From there we headed to Tumut where Pam and Phil hang out. Phil is the WORLD’S GREATEST DENTIST. Pam was voted Citizen of the Year last year here in Tumut. They’ve been an item ever since WE introduced them to each other in 1967. Pretty serious stuff eh? We went for a visit to Adelong Falls and Laurel Hill via Batlow. We viewed the Sugar pines there. Also had lunch at Beaufort House in Adelong. What a darling of a spot! Either stay at the hotel/motel or stay for a feed or better still, do both! Thanks Cynthia. We’ll be back. The Hungarian Goulash was to die for and the apple strudel (local apples) was just plain yummy.
Table tennis with Phil was some task!!! A story on its own. Also a Rotary visit.
Then to Cooma where we attended Liz England and Mike Fairburn's wedding. A great time had by all, especially the bride (see photos!) Had to put Liz and Mike at the top of the photos even though that is out of chronological order!
Now back in sunny Dubbo for a short stay before another wedding (Stuart & Bec in Wollongong) and then we'd better start heading for Busselton in WA.
