If you are beginning to ascertain that it was a busy weekend with our company, your are correct. Sue had noticed, as only Sue can notice, that there was a great sale on at the Wool Shop Boutique. It's quite a classy clothing shop attached to the rather unrefined Wool growers Coop.
While the ladies availed themselves of the bargains, Brian and I wandered around the wool warehouse with great interest. We were very pleased that it was open, and no one seemed to mind us wandering about with our cameras.
The Coop was once a railway maintenance station, but is now the wool grading station for the whole country — right here in our little town. It was crammed full of bales, more so that on my visit last summer.

This might be my favourite photo from the weekend: a cat nestled amongst the bales. I am sure that the felines keep themselves well fed on the ubiquitous mice.
I found a desk that I thought was interesting.
There is also an equestrian centre within the structure, selling cowboy boots, among other things.
Finally, before being off to other places, I took this photo of the window and wall outside the equestrian centre. I don't know why windows and walls appeal to me, but they do.
