Dead kangaroos jump out at you, too!

Winnebago Eyre 2012

Our Winnebago is off the road.

We came around a bend on the Castlereagh Highway at 90 km p.h. and there was a large dead roo in front of us. Nowhere to go but hit it, and bang.

Pitch black dark, not sure what is busted…

Almost home, so we kept going. No warning lights, no funny noises, no extra rattles.

In the daylight we found we had a ruptured fuel line, because the diesel is dripping out fast. Not sure what else is damaged, but the insurance company will see about that.

We are in an isolated location, so getting it towed somewhere is proving to be difficult, and because it is under warranty, we don’t want just anyone to tinker with it.

Oh dear!

We haven’t left Rylstone behind

Golf course view - Rylstone 2012

We keep returning to Rylstone (the last place we lived) so we can go to our doctor.

In a recent visit, I painted a small picture in acrylics on gessoed acrylic paper of the view overlooking the golf course beside the caravan park.

Riverina area and greater Murray region

Journal page of the Murray River region

Travelling in the Winnebago around the Riverina saw us wondering at the size of the grain paddocks. Miles and miles of golden grain fields, set against a backdrop of dark green treeline, and the biggest azure blue sky.

We came across three wedge tailed eagles enjoying the fruits of their kill a baby lamb — in a paddock full of ewes and lambs. Natural selection, I suppose.

The pretty town of Barellan (home of Evonne Goolagong, our famous tennis player) was a delight, as was Condoblin.

Here’s a collage page in my journal of some of our latest days:

I used a stencil I had of an eagle to add the story about the three eagles, and I’m going to add detail with feathers and markings once I get an image to go by.
