Have decided to take a few days away from the dreary coast with its grey skies and humidity.
Driving along the Hume Hwy it was cloudy until I passed the Federal Hwy turn off then the sun came out and from then on it just got brighter and warmer until I arrived in Coota when it was about 30’C.
Along the way my satnav took me via Jugiong rather than the more normal route via Harden but I don’t mind these variations. Certainly there is little traffic and you get to see a lot of farmland or bush but, despite the satnavs ideas, they are not quicker routes because they are usually narrower and winding so you rarely can stay on the speed limit. However I enjoy the variety.
Set up the camper and went for a walk down the main street which was only a short walk from the caravan park. The Ex Services Club looked inviting so I called in for a beer.
