One of the checkpoints is here in Jindabyne, and so our group was able to get their first stamp straight away after breakfast. By 10 o'clock we were off on our way to Dalgety, on the Snowy River, to collect stamp number 2. Once again we were in the company of hundreds of riders who were all there for a coffee and a chat and to get their stamp too.
Food stalls and cafes were all doing a roaring trade and face painting was also very popular.
We spent a couple of hours in Cooma where we got our third and final stamp and handed our passports in - job done. During these events strange sights should be expected. My strange sight of the day was a man walking two ferrets on leashes. Caused quite a sensation and particularly when bystanders were invited to stroke the little rodents.
I resisted the temptation no matter how cute it looked.
Just after 1 pm it was time to make the return trip back to Jindabyne. A brilliant day, and finally the weather has started to improve. Hoping for a fine day for the ride home tomorrow.
What a great idea for an event.ReplyDelete
I've never seen someone walking a ferret. Odd.
Yes a brilliant event and I would imagine a real shot in the arm for the local economy. Even in Australia a ferret on a leash is not a frequent sight.Delete
