The great butterfly massacre of Gooloogong.

Location: ///flutes.headliners.romance

B-roads make for a more positive travelling adventure. C-roads even better ( although the robustness of Ripley can be a little precious on some C-roads, so we always take them with a preemptive grain of caution).

It was the perfect weather for driving. Sunny but cool. We loloped our way to Boorowa for coffee. We dodged a procession of dark anvil thunderstorm cells to Cowra for lunch.

And then we ambled the scenic B-roads to Gooloogong, midway between Cowra and Forbes on the Lachlan Valley Way. Lovely. It is just so green out here right now.

On the road between Cowra and Gooloogong we cut our way through a sea-ice of white butterflies. Thousands of them crossing the fields of Canola and Pattisons curse. It was a slow fluttering carnage that we shall be extracting from Ripley’s nooks and crannies for a good while to come.

The 3 amigos. Ripley, Kelly & Juno.

Tonight we will be staying at the neat and tidy Gooloogong recreational park. Toilets, and quiet, powered sites all for a small donation.

I can hear Kelly inside the van tinkering away preparing a veggo salad. I really should offer to help out, but….beer inertia.
