Echuca 23/4/12 to 27/4/12

Pool sharks

We decided to stay at a more resort type caravan park in Echua to give the boys a holiday away from the holiday.  They enjoyed the games room, playing pool and table tennis. Also spending time on the jumping pillow and all of us swimming in the indoor heated pool. The park was a bit more expensive and we will be reverting back to our usually standard of accommodation from here on.

Our steam boat. Just a little chilly

We did manage to do some touristy type things visiting the Port of Echua and going along on the Murray in a  paddle steamer and doing a tour of the Port.

We have had some of the coldest weather so far. One night it got as low as 4 degrees and that day was only 13 and windy. We all got our bennies out and I had my gloves on.  They had a very good camp kitchen which I put to good use. I made a banana cake and picklets and we also had a lovely dinner in there one night watching TV with the aircon on, while Doug and I enjoyed one of the Reds from Rutherglen.  It was good to be able to spread out.
