A few days spent in my home town helping dad out around the place was time well spent. Chippin burs, cleaning, shopping yeah all the mundane tasks that a now 81 year is starting to find difficult. He's got the most dangerous edger in the entire world, with unguarded spinning blade and the engine vibrates the handle so much your hands get numb. Can't believe he made us use this all the time when we were ten, I guess us kids back in the 70-80's weren't the pussies like the new generations are. We just have less fingers......
Dad mentioned to me about the Sculpture trail on the Lachlan Valley way. So we took a drive out to have a look. The floods had washed away some parts of the road in several locations. Photo below was one of the better ones, in some places there was no road.
I was pretty impressed actually that that put all these sculpture works of art out here in bum fuck nowhere. So I came back on the bike to check them out in a bit more detail. The one below is made entirely of chainlinks welded together, it must have taken many, many hours to put that together.

Over the last few years Forbes has put in place a number of sculptures and now has a government grant to place these along the 100km Sculpture trail along the Lachlan Valley Way to Condobolin. Its called "Somewhere down the Lachlan". Click on the link to check it out.
There are a few more I didn't take photos of and a few in town that I'd taken photos of previously below.
