Memories: Our Travelling in June 2018

In June 2018 we stopped at the

Common Ground Cafe & Bakery @ The Razorback Inn


From there we went to Picton to have a look at the GEORGE IV INN. We thought we might be able to stay there overnight.


As it turned out we stayed there only for a few drinks. We did have a look at their accommodation. But it was not to our liking for they could not provide us with any heating for any of the bedrooms.

So we stayed in a motel a bit outside of Picton where we had a large warm room with all the conveniences.


There was also dinner available on the premises, and so we had some excellent food and drinks there:


This sign was in our bathroom. I think their tank water was limited because they did not have enough rain for a while.


We checked out early in the morning and had breakfast here:



We rather liked this little town where we had breakfast. Then we drove on to Bowral.

The little town where we had breakfast was Tahmoor:

ALICORN by Frank Gauntlett


When the Old World stopped believing in good Elves, Yetis, Fairies, Centaurs & such, those magical ‘mythological’ creatures established a comfortable Village colony in huge caverns beneath the Australian outback. But the battle between good and evil never ends. The Bad Guys – led by Spindox Corporation’s sinister CEO Nick Unseely – are massing and moving out of their huge glass pyramid headquarters rising from the Australian Bush; A terrifying Hag is sent to steal the Good Guys’ powerful relic – a real Unicorn horn, an Alicorn. Scores of Good Guys are consigned to Unseely’s subterranean prison but these Good Guys don’t give up easily – nor do their friends. Our trusted children’s fiction reviewer Sam Capell said this about Alicorn: “Trolls, wizards, unicorns, elves, gnomes and more all add up to a brilliant read in this well-written journey. Just one of many things I liked was the unique way of writing, going from one characters perspective to another, leaving cliff-hangers everywhere. Another is the incredible array of characters, beings and places, from wizards to leprechauns, trolls to unicorns, outback Australia to the devious Spindox corporation. In this book, myth meets reality with some big consequences. Evil pits its strength against good with varying degrees of success, and when humans come into the mix, things get serious. This was a thrilling read with lots of descriptive language, almost too much at times! Fans of J.K Rowling will be elated to add this novel to their collection.”
