January 21-22

We left Melbourne on Friday 20th and travelled quickly back to Queensland.

The second day of driving (21st) we stopped for lunch in Parkes, NSW.  This was where the Radio Telescope Dish is located that was featured in the movie “The Dish” with Sam Neill of Jurassic Park fame.  This was neat to see.  During NASA’s missions to the moon there were periods of time the lunar vehicles and spacecraft were crossing over the southern hemisphere and this was their only communication with earth.  It’s good to have allies on the other side of the earth.
Internet connection is very slow so I'll post more pictures later on this. But here is one!!!!
Arrived back at Ruth;s house in Kingaroy on Sunday mid afternoon. Ready to do some laundry.
