Three do a Thousand Part Four: Purchased at Parkes

Just outside of Parkes we came across a nice little cafe that was selling jams and things. And you know how I am when it comes to jams and things packaged in my colours of choice. So I just had to buy some:They also had a little gift shop where I found this very cute stitch marker:I guess they used have pretty awful TV reception as out the back they have the biggest Sky dish that I've ever seen...It seemed to be a pretty good place to stay for a while. Pity we didn't have time.

(OK, just kidding. I know it's the Parkes CSIRO radio telescope as made famous by the movie The Dish. So visiting here nicely continued our tradition of visiting places on our travels that we've seen in movies)
