Hi All,

After West Wyalong we headed to Young.

Before we tell you about Young we must add that the 1st photo of the series this time is of the Hay Plains, desolate, treeless, flat but not boring, it’s just different, the photo tells the story.

Young is famous in NSW for cherries, predominately at Christmas time and Anne remembered going there every year as a girl with her parents to get their Christmas supply. There still is a bakery that cooks cherry tarts, beautiful, we went back every day for more, of course we have attached a photo thereof. They also make mushroom cakes, which as younger ones we were able to buy in Wollongong, loved them then and now and sorry photo attached.

Never fear also nearby is a silo, at Grenfell, visited of course and photo attached. From there we moved north to Mudgee for a night on the way seeing a silo at Portland. This silo at Portland was slightly different as it was built for cement not grain as are all the others. The next day travelling to Barraba and we stopped at Merriwa for another silo. After there at Barraba we found what you have all been waiting for, the last silo.

Next and last stop was at Tenterfield and then home after 7.5 weeks away, 22 silos and just over 9,000kms and a lot of fun.

We hope you enjoyed the trip as much as we did.

As ever
