A little adventuring – Part 2
One of the mid-north towns we stopped at on the trip was Wirrabara. It’s a favourite little town of mine, mostly because it has a great produce market once a month – and I timed the visit to co-incide with one. Sorry, didn’t take any photos of the market, as I was too busy catching up with old friends, and buying yummy food :-)
The following morning though, I took a quiet walk around the town, and on a Monday morning in winter, it was very quiet. The locals I did see, were friendly in their greetings. There’s a saying in South Australia, that the further north one travels, the friendlier the people get, and I have to agree that its been my experience also. Perhaps it’s to do with the climate – further south where its colder, people tend to stay in the their homes more…….
The local craft shop is well worth a visit, with a wide selection of local produce, such as jams and honey etc, and woollen garments, fleeces, timber carvings, and stunning fibre work by a local artist.
