    Day 3

    June 2, 2017 in Australia

    Got up this morning to a slight frost very chilly, as we have no plan we decided to have a lazy day in Mildura did some shopping, very good shopping lots to look at in town and stocked up on supplies as we are going to head off in to the outback where the shopping is very limited. Lots in the van park, most of them stopping here for a bit and then doing the grey nomad exodus to the top end. Lots of paddle steamers up and down the river, would be a very busy place in the summer months.Read more

    Christmas Day

    December 25, 2017 in Australia

    Much cooler night so we both had a good sleep. Our Aussie Christmas started with a wake up call from the kookaburras and a kangaroo hopped past us as we walked to the toilet. It was a lovely slow relaxing day, croissants for breakfast with a lovely large pot of coffee for me. We were responding to lots of messages which was lovely too. Next a walk along the river checking out the house boats, the trail is also a biking track so we decided to get the bikes out. It was a great track along the river and we were loving it when Regan got a flat tyre. Of course we were 5.7km from the camp so it was a long walk back in 26 degrees.

    Obviously we were rather hot by then so it was good motivation to brace the Murray River for a swim. It went against everything we had been taught about not swimming where you can't see the bottom but it was perfect. The river is a slow moving muddy lifeblood for 2508km of Australia.

    Lunch was ham/turkey salad and potatoes. We found some mint next to the camp kitchen which added to the potato pot and gave us a taste of home. We toasted the day with a lovely sparkling Merlot that we had bought at our last orphan Christmas at Albany in WA 3 years ago. It had been squeezed in the car for the trek across the Nullarbor and was very much appreciated with lunch. I rustled up dessert with raspberries, cream and shortbread.

    Relaxing afternoon reading, watching families swimming, and another short walk. We finished the day with sandwiches and a nice bottle of wine - pretty perfect. Regan had a bit of drama later in the evening when the shower head fell off and shot hot water over all his clothes so he returned to the camper looking like a drowned rat with everything soaked.

    Mildura

    September 5, 2016 in Australia

    Mildura it is for a few weeks maybe, depending on Bryce's contacts. Maybe a few weeks work. Arriving safely as I was driving. I was directed to the Apex caravan park, not knowing why but found out that this was where Andy was made (as Steve put it). They holidayed here as a family many years ago. "Righto Luv, you back it in" says he. I'm generally good a backing, even if I do say so myself but today, there was total confusion. Steve directed me to the wrong side of the site and I had in my mind that the Power pole and taps were in line with each other. So back and forth I went until I cracked the shits and thought, well I'll come at it from a different angle. Oops!!! as i was rounding the corner up the end of the block, there stood a beautiful flower pot, mmm... made of concrete. Well you can guess hat happened. As I went around to the site, the one says laughingly, "I'm and idiot, I had you on the wrong side of the site. I was too scared to mention what I had done. I couldn't believe it. How stupid of me. We continued to set up camp and I plucked up the courage to tell him. Well as we know, he hit the roof and I brought him back down by reminding him of the time he almost removed the awning. Did I rant and rave then? No. He calmed down and we continued to set up camp and headed to Bryce's to see what painting he wanted done. On a brighter note the weather is perfect, sunny and a mild 19 deg.Read more
