Queensland Sojourn - Day 1

We are on a mini trip to Queensland to deliver a car to Shanes brother. For those who know the size of Australia might say this is a long way to go for only a couple of days. But it's all an experience and fun. After heading off this morning we weren't very far up the highway and had already seen 6 dead Kangaroos, They just don't have any chance when they are hit by a road train. This journey will take us through quite a few old towns and I love all the old buildings in country towns and they all have at least one good old country pub,

Jerilderie had two great old pubs
 
Parts of the drive consisted of nothing but a long road and flat plains.


This is just before we had a dust storm

The day was starting to get very warm and even though I don't usually eat ice-cream very much when we stopped for petrol I saw these in the fridge and really had to have one.

I haven't had a heart ice-cream for years - they are so creamy

Finally we reached our overnight destination - West Wyalong. We have had a lovely Chinese meal and will probably have an early night ready for another leg of our journey tomorrow.
