Arrived at the new camping site mid morning, set up and prepared to have a wonderful lead-up to Christmas over the next week, walking the dogs, swimming maybe! and what ever is next. The area has Lot's of horses grazing, also there heaps of rabbits, much to Dot and Yips excitement.
Sightseeing today. went into town found the bakery and tried some of their goodies, yummy!

at campsite Bingara
Evening produced the most magnificent sunset we've seen for some time.
|Double rainbow over our bus at Bingara|
Then it rained as well to light up the sky with a double rainbow, photo opportunities can't get better than this can it?
Well I had a fun time with it.
Another day over, bring it on.

|Dot and Yip relaxed as they can be|
Dot and Yip seemed impressed with their lot.
They gave chasing rabbits a go but I have had to call a halt to this fun due to excessive running about on my behalf.
The wild life is varied and many, local tourist attraction is the bird life, I've seen so many different types I have lost count.

All Nations Hill - Bingara
Inspected the town and surrounds over the past few days, nice town which has all you need, IGA supermarket included. Drove to All Nations hill on the outskirts of town to find this old gold mine battery stamper, huge thing, all part of the history of the town.
|Storm clouds on Xmas eve|
The storm bought gusty winds, shaking Dilligaf and our awning, but managed to stay in one piece.
Thursday 25th - Christmas day
Lazy - lazy day. Nothing special. Merry Christmas to all.
We share our camp site (all of about 3/4 of kilometre of river frontage) with only 4 other campers, very surprising to each one of us, this spot must be the most well kept secret in Australia. Great for us though, no crowds, very quiet and peaceful.
Boxing day. Another overcast day, not much rain.
That's the Christmas of 2014 gone, another year on it's way. probably catch all next year.
