Cheerios to cousin Jack and family and then a ride through the beautiful new England countryside to Inverell for a coffee and lunch. From here the temperature climbed steadily as I rode towards Moree stopping just short at Pallamallawa before a short but sandy dirt road to my cousin Trina and her families property "Bellview".
This is cotton country hot, flat and big paddocks. Unfortunately this season not much cotton planted due to lack of rain fall.
I found Trina and Emma (daughter) at the homestead sheltering in the air conditioning whilst Pete was out and about in the heat. The garden looked green but beyond the home paddock fence brown was the feature hue.
