We stopped off at the Dog on the Tucker Box just outside Gundagai for a quick photo at a place I know well, as a child I often spent my holidays at a little down just further on from Gundagai called Adelong.

An old abandoned house just near the turn off to Adelong. Love the houses so many questions pop into my head
So So So excited here at the Adelong turn off, where my childhood started to dance across my path for the day
|How many children?|
|Do decendants still leave near by?|
We took the kids to Adelong falls where I spent many hours climbing on and over the rocks to swim in the pools dotted along the creek. I watched as my own children do the same as I had done some thirty years ago and the pleasure was just as amazing for them and me.

|The farm where I spent most of my time in Adelong, running wild all over those slopes and camping out.|

The light is fading in this last photo as it is late in the afternoon and we are suposed to be in Wagga right at that time, setting up for the show so I rolled up my memories and stowed them away very carefully with a promise to come back and not leave it so long. Thirty years is too long.
