    Final stop! Barmah (part one)

    November 3, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    All those months ago when we were planning our trip, we'd always used the Melbourne Cup weekend as our trip end date. We figured our annual camping trip with friends was going to be the perfect finale for our adventure.
    We arrived a day earlier than everyone else, on Thursday, and the place was virtually deserted! We parked the van temporarily while we waited for the caravan park guy to mark out our area for this year...and that's when Jen noticed a sadly familiar sight... The rear left wheel on the caravan didn't look right - and sadly, it wasn't! Another locator bolt gone but in a stroke of luck, we'd hunted down the part and a local guy, John, within half an hour and the best bit was that he came to us! We sat and relaxed by the river while he did the hard work and then we finally got around to setting up.
    Dinner outside and then a fire with marshmallows to toast seemed to be a fitting way to spend the last evening of "just us" on our trip. We all agreed having friends coming to join us for the weekend was definitely the best way to end our travels!
    On Friday morning we decided to tick one last thing off our "I wish we could" list and took the kids for a trail ride along the river, just outside of Echuca at the Billabong Ranch. The kids had been wanting to do a horse ride since we had stayed at Home Valley Station so it was nice to surprise them with a 1 hour trip. Even better was the unanimous agreement that it had been worth the wait!

    Final stop! Barmah (part two)

    November 5, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Happily, on Friday we were invaded by our regular Cup weekend camping crew and the rest of the long weekend was filled with friends and fun. Bike riding, swimming, Lego, games, toasting marshmallows and going out in the boat were all on the kids' agendas while almost all of the adults made the most of having entertained kids and relaxed riverside! Was definitely the ONLY way to end our road trip!Read more

    Last day at Lakeside

    August 1 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    Today was a lazy day at Lakeside. The sun was out today so it was nice staying at the resort.

    The morning started with us working on the video slideshow on our holiday to Vietnam. I needed a break so I made I made iced doughnuts for morning tea. Then back to the computer. As it was a nice day we went for a walk around the lake before having homemade vegetable soup. Then back to the slideshow a few more hours and we have finally finished. It was a holiday which we enjoyed for 1 month and took me 5 months to put all the pictures,videos and music together.

    Now time to cook dinner and pack up everything for an early start in the morning.

    Murray River - Forges Beach no. 1

    March 16, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Overnight at a fantastic free camp on the Murray, complete with our own sandy beach. We both had a swim and Marg was so relaxed she fell asleep in the pool hammock and floated downstream! Unfortunately the neighbours woke and returned her...hehe

    Lakeside Country Club

    July 27 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    The activity for today is planning the week, catching up on computer work and getting to know the area.

    This morning we were greeted with birds, not kangaroos. After breakfast some research on what Numurkah has to offer and what we can do during our week here.

    Once we had worked out our program for the week it was time to explore the resort. It is very good for young and old and I think that summertime would be fabulous. The resort has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, 2 playgrounds, squash and tennis courts, volley ball, basketball, mini golf, a large outdoor domino set, a teenage area with pool tables and an adult room with a lovely fireplace, large TV and more pool tables. Set right next to a lake where you can go canoeing and even fish. The resort even set the fishing rods up for you to try and catch what ever is in the lake. It would be great for large family holidays.Read more

    Wet day in Numurkah

    July 29 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    A wet day in Numurkah today so I made cup cakes in the pie maker for morning tea.

    The remainder of the morning was computer work. These slide shows are never ending. I am currently working on our Vietnam Cambodia trip which requires 2 hours of music. So trying to work out the music ,download and upload is very time consuming and trying but we are getting there. 1 hour to go, I am now up to Cambodia.

    After a few hours and lunch we thought fresh air would be good. The rain has stopped but still cold. John found a winery close by so we popped in the car for a 8 min drive, I checked Google along the only to find closed Monday and Tuesday. So we turned around and went into town for petrol. We are now back at the computer.

    Cactus Country

    July 31 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Back on the road and this time to Cactus Country, fingers crossed it is not a cactus visit.

    On driving up the driveway we already knew that this was going to be intetesting.

    Cactus Country has 4,000 species of cacti and succulents from around the globe which are presented in an unforgettable journey throughout eight different garden trails.

    Is sounds really good and it was Ok but does need some maintance especially as you pay an entrance fee of $15 each (for the Oldies).

    We walked around the gardens for about an hour before heading back to the Cafe for Nacho's, Cactus Cake and Cactus Ice Cream. Nacho's average but the cake and ice cream was very nice.

    They do a Day of the Dead Party for Halloween which looked interesting maybe one day in the future when there is not a Halloween Party at Camperdown Castle.

    Our culinary day has ended as we are back on the road to Lakeside unless you call Satay Chicken for dinner a culinary expereince. John probably does as he like's all food especially my cooking.

    Home for the week

    July 26 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    Back on the road this time it is my turn to drive. The country side is so pretty along the way cattle, sheep and alpaca all grazing on the lush green fields.

    Now in Numurkah stopped at the local IGA before heading to Lakeside Country Club our home for the week. This is another place from our holiday club. This unit has also been designed badly. I really do not understand why these places do not have storage in the bedroom or the bathroom. These places are timeshare and you book for a week. We have taken over the second bedroom beds as our walk in wardrobe.Read more
