WEDNESDAY 13 DECEMBER SWAN HILL TO ECHUCA 200kms
We were away by 8am.
Today was a very pleasant one. We had an easy drive along the Murray valley and were at Echuca by lunch time. Getting so much distance covered on that first day has enabled us to do wind-down stages at this end.
We stopped at Kerang to refuel – $1.05cpl.
The old Riverside Caravan Park has changed, being taken more upmarket, but it is really nice now. There is a lovely big pool. Our site cost $20.
We walked up to the old wharf tourist precinct and then further on to the redgum sawmill, to look at timber.
Late in the afternoon, I went for a swim in the pool. I couldn’t persuade John into the water – he stayed back at the van and read. I really enjoyed my swim.
Tea was roast potatoes that I cooked in foil, in the electric frypan outside. With that, John had some tinned fish, I had strasburg.
The evening sky was a vivid mid-blue colour – beautiful.
