Cowra – Day 2

Both the driver and navigator were pretty tired after Monday’s driving through the rain so we slept in quite late this morning.  When we finally woke up the rain had eased but hadn’t completely gone away.  It stayed that way all day.

After a late breakfast there was a break in the weather so we walked the short distance into town and had a look around.  Most of the places we visited when we were in Cowra last year are still here, although there are possibly a few more vacant shops than we remembered.  Unfortunately the quilting shop was closed.

One of the interesting things about our walk through town was the amount of what appeared to be snow in the streets.  It’s actually blossom; possibly cherry blossom given the Japanese connection with Cowra.  There is a big cherry blossom festival at the Cowra Japanese gardens in a couple of weeks.

We reacquainted ourselves with a second hand bookshop called Browse Awhile we had visited last year and browsed a while.  We both bought some books we have been searching for and had a good chat to Tony the owner.  We will definitely come back to visit next time we are in Cowra!

It started raining again so we had little option but to stop for coffee and cake until the rain eased.

Finally back at the fiver we remarked what a nice park this is.  Large sites, many with concrete pads for the van and awning, and some of the drive through sites even have pads under the vehicle.  Amenities are not exactly modern but certainly clean.  The park also backs onto parkland over the river, and we noted how much the river had risen since we arrived just yesterday.

We spent the afternoon confined to the fiver, catching up on some computer work, reading, and preparing for our departure tomorrow.
