Monday 7th November 2011, Forbes.

We are now at Forbes, near Parkes, and are looking at only staying here for a couple of days. We were originally going to stop for a week but something has come up that makes Linda want to be in Melbourne by the end of the month. Grand-daughter has a concert on, or about, the 20th and she would like to be there to watch. A call to Nelle to advise when we may be arriving reveals that our parking spot may not yet be ready so it looks like being in Shepparton around the time Linda wants to be at the concert so she could at least catch a train to Melbourne for a couple of days. We only got here a couple of hours ago, and we have already had a walk into town which has only made me realise how nice a small town this is and how I would have liked to stop for a week, but there is always another time. The caravan park here, the Country Club Caravan Park, is such a neat park, quite cheap and under used from the amount of vans here, which I find quite surprising. So far I can’t think of a thing wrong with the park, management even seem to think they remember us from when we were here a couple of years ago, I wouldn’t know why.
