Warm day deserved a run, so headed up to Avenel to show the Chief the grave’s of Red Kelly – father of Ned Kelly – and Arthur Bayley, the founder of the Coolgardie goldfields (his huge monument was paid for by the grateful people of Western Australia).
Dropped into the local W.B.Gadd store for a squiz and a coffee.
Then on to Nagambie to check out the statue of Black Caviar, which won a world record 25 starts.
Dropped into The Jetty for lunch. The service was very slow (we were the only customers!), the waitress couldn’t work the cash resister and had to resort to a calculator, the coffee was tepid and the bowl of chips wouldn’t have fed a 3-year old. Nagambie has to do a lot of work to lift its game.
Quick run home via Costerfield and Tooborac.
