Utes in the Paddock

Ute of Arms

Clancy Stops the Overflow


An interested spectator

A rather chilly and foggy start to the day, but as we only had a one hour journey today, there was no hurry and we were able to enjoy the heater for a little longer than normal.  The road to Condobolin was very good with very little traffic – I didn’t even need to remove a shoe to continue counting the passing traffic!  The countryside was mainly sheep and wheat, with cotton closer to Condobolin.

We are staying at the Riverview Caravan Park, on the banks of the Lachlan River and an easy walk to the main street and shops.  It is another lovely little country caravan park, with grassy sites, sealed roads and kerbs; the amenities are very good and clean.  The friendly manager makes scones for morning tea every day and lights the campfire every afternoon for happy hour.  We will have a couple of nights here, as rain is expected tomorrow.

This afternoon we drove to Lootha to see the “Cars in the Paddock” art installation.  About 24 Holden utes have been turned into works of art and are displayed in a sheep paddock behind a large, barbed wire fence.  Unfortunately, I can’t remember all individual names of the utes.
