Don't be deceived, as beautiful as they were, the canola fields were not soft! They were prickly and difficult to wade through. The idea to visit a canola field has been over a year in the making, and it finally came into fruition. In my friend's very tiny volkswagen, it was a very steep and bendy four-hour drive from Sydney. It was certainly an interesting trip (we may or may not have been yelled at by a passing truck). Now if there was only a nice lavender field somewhere in NSW. And the portfolio building continues.
We were hoping to have a picnic in the fields, but it wasn't a good idea. On the drive back to Sydney we pulled over at a nice rest stop and had our picnic there. It was a fun day for what it was - eight hours in the car, two Maccas stops (quintessential road trip must), trying to discern our location through radio frequencies, and frolicking in a canola field. The latter, at least we tried. The canola was very tall.
