|Deepwater river at Deepwater|
Much excitement on Thursday for the townsfolk as the drug squad did a bust on the area, police cars, helicopter and all, the town was a buzz on this day, exceptional compared to normal run of the mill kind of quiet town day.
We moved on Friday to the southern end of town and will be heading off on Saturday to take advantage of the weekend and quieter road traffic.

|Court house in Glen Innes|
We stopped at a rest area at Swan Vale. Nothing here but a lovely little creek called Swan Brook and the farm land. I saw a swamp hen in the creek with 2 chicks, that gave me a kick!
|Inverell - Long way to there from here|
|Grain silo at Delungra|
Elected to continue another 30 or so km to Delungra. Another small village with a Pub, service station and - a little surprisingly - a bowling club, pretty big club and fairly new by the looks of it. We pulled up beside the Hotel and after having a beer and asking permission of the publican will camp here for the night. Obviously a grain growing area as this huge silo can be seen long before you get into town. There a few buildings that were shops but now closed and private residences, about 300 population I think. Nice town! very green and fresh looking.
Discovered the Delungra sport ground reserve camping ground yesterday afternoon, only $15.00 a night for a powered site, we have moved to here today and set up camp with the thought of spending a week or two relaxing and keeping off the roads over the Christmas silly season.
Great weather, quiet camp site, plenty to eat and drink, can't ask for much more.
