So: I was so excited to go and see a true rural Australian agricultural show yesterday. With its best pie competition, cattle showing, sheep sheering, vegetable show-off, sheep dog contest, etc...
We drove all the way to Rydal, deep in the Blue Mountains, and arrived to a very quiet show ground to find out that even though we had seen plenty of advertisement for it, there was no actual show on Friday; only the judging. All the fun stuff was happening on Saturday! :-(
We saw a few eggs, flowers and vegetables quietly waiting to be judged, but that's it... no cattle, no sheep sheering, no dog competitions... we were quite disappointed!
We did drive through beautiful country side though, and got to see Blackheath's huge antique shop, and had a lovely lunch there.
