14 June 2008 – Broken Hill to Cobar

We were up with the alarm at 6.30am (est) and on the road by 8.00am (est).

We departed Broken Hill driving into a very bright and low sun.  Cruise control was set to 100 kilometres per hour as we headed towards our next destination, Cobar.

The drive was uneventful and was highlighted by the sighting of over 100 wild goats during our trip.  We actually had to slow down several times to make sure that the goats had cleared the road.  Today we also noted a higher than usual number of road kill.

The area between Broken Hill and Cobar appears to be very wet within numerous areas of water located near the road.  We both commented that with the exception of Northern Queensland, the majority of the areas we have passed through do not appear to be suffering from extreme drought.  The area between Broken Hill and Cobar is very green.

We arrived at the Cobar Caravan Park at 1.30pm and decided to check-in and then have a quiet afternoon.

Tea consisted of pepper steaks with a mushroom sauce.

Shortly after we finished tea, we received a telephone call from Sydney that we had been dreading.  A close friend lost his fight for life today.  Tonight our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this very sad time.
