While our cabin is comfortable, we would rather be ‘on the road’.  The part for the brakes for the Kimberley comes in some time tomorrow, so we suppose that means Monday night here as well.

The weather is sunny today, although a cool breeze keeps us on our toes.  Decided to go out for a BBQ overlooking the mighty Murray – do you think we could find one?  Not until we asked a local, who directed us to the Apex Park, right on the river’s edge, gas BBQ, tables amongst magnificent red gums.  Only sausages in bread, washed down with the ubiquitous glass of chardonnay of course!

The PS Melbourne paddled by, making us wish we were on it, but being on the bank and listening to the sound of the wheel gave us great pleasure.  We returned home, and spent the afternoon on the deck of our cabin, which faces the river, and have been entertained by passing house-boats, paddle steamers, giving us a toot as they return, and the odd skier or two (odd being the operative word, given the temperature of the day – no offense to all those water skiers out there!)

Things are pretty slow in Mildura, but maybe that’s what we need at the moment (a positive thought, from a negative situation??)

Sorry the blog isn’t more interesting – just wait until – hopefully Tuesday – when we’re on the road again!!!!

    Hi Marg, Good to hear the first instalments, as unexpected as they are, its good to hear your making the most of your time in Mildura. I’ve been to trentham and still have some wine in my cellar from there saving it fo a special ocasion, I have a great memory of having a similar platter and wine with Tracy when we were up there at her parents home, loved the fact that the houseboats could pull up and enjoy the place, one of the things i would love to do with other friends (maybe an upmarket cup weekend). I also stayed at the Apex park when i travelled around Aus so its great to know your there and giving me some memories and its only the first days of your tip. Hope things get back to plan soon, but i’m assured you will make the most of whatever happens and be stronger for it. All our love to you and Russ, keep smilind Pete and Shelby
