Day 28: Gundagai

11/4/14 Gundagai, Celia

Today we woke at the motel and said bye to dad when he went with Majid, Linda, and Daniel, back to Nangus, to walk from there to Gundagai. We went to the coin laundry. It was very hot and I couldn't breathe in there. It became very crowded and we had to use a lot of 1$ coins. It took a long time. Meanwhile, we ate breakfast at the bakery next to the coin laundry. It was known to be the oldest working bakeries in Australia when we finished with our laundry we dumped it in our hotel room and went shopping for our next camping trip, ate lunch, and ate more lunch with dad when he came arrived back. We walked around town and ate dinner in a church. We went to bed.
