Home sweet home!

Day 31 of our trip – Saturday 27 April 2013

Willie’s Retreat, Macquarie Marshes – Home sweet home!

Today we had a good night’s sleep ready for going home. We packed up the camper for the last time. Today was going to be a big day. We felt sad to say goodbye to our holiday. But before we left we had a good chat to Myra, the very old lady who owns the property we were staying at. We also had a look around the property and drove to the southern end of the Macquarie Marshes which was interesting, we would like to come back to this place to explore further.

We eventually got on road to head for home. We stopped at Dubbo to have lunch in a park and stretch our legs.

For our final treat we stopped at a Chinese Restaurant at Hazelbrook for dinner. We enjoyed chatting about the holiday and decided on our favourite places.

We have had a great holiday and an experience.

On the trip we travelled 9321km over four and half weeks.

Now we just need to do the big unpack and lots of cleaning to get rid of all the red dirt we have brought home with us!
