For the long weekend we went to Dubbo in Central NSW, my husband's home town, to stay with his mother (his father was actually in Sydney for the weekend for the football grand final). Thanks Beth, we had a lovely time with you!
We had a great weekend. It poured rain in Sydney but the skies were bright blue in Dubbo - the photo below is untouched! Amazing.
We went to the Western Plains Zoo which was fun. Phil and the kids cycled around but I was too scared to ride with my broken arm - the last thing I need is 2 broken arms! Phil and the kids went to Dubbo Gaol also while I took Charlie, our dog, for a long walk along the river. We also stumbled across a cute cafe, Short Street Store. Not really what we expected to see in rural NSW but a great find and will definitely be our "local" when we next visit. It used to a corner shop (since the 1930's) and my husband used to play pinball there after school as a kid. It's recently been renovated and is now open for breakfast and lunch.
Great coffee and food all served in a very cute setting - lots of little rooms and spaces to enjoy your food!
