FRIDAY 21 SEPTEMBER HOME TO HAY 440kms
We completed the packing of Truck through the morning, and left home before midday.
I’d arranged for a neighbour to come in and feed the cats, and replenish the litter trays. The cats live inside most of the time, and it wouldn’t hurt them to be confined to quarters for the duration. One of them acted like he knew we were going off and leaving them – again – and he followed us closely all morning.
We travelled the McIvor Highway to Heathcote and then on to Echuca.
Ate our packed lunch as we went.
We had fine weather for the day, and it warmed up as we got further north.
From Echuca, struck north, through Deniliquin to Hay, which was the night’s destination. We did not stop in any of the towns to sightsee. The aim of the first two days was simply to get to the first place we planned to spend time at.
We spent the night in a cabin at the Hay Plains Caravan Park.
Tea was fish and chips – John went out again in Truck and bought these.
It was so good to be on the move again, albeit for a short time.
