Corowa 21/4/12 to 23/4/12

We are driving off from Corowa/Rutherglen on a beautiful day heading for Echua where it is supposed to be very cold for the next couple of days getting down to 6 over night and 15 during the day.

We were camped on the Murray River in a caravan park full of permanent on site vans but no people.  It felt like a ghost town as you walked through to the amenities. Obviously busy in school holidays. Some great setups . We had the area down the back on the river to ourselves. We could have had any site we wanted. It turns out we picked the lowest point in the park. After a big thunder storm last night we looked out to find we were in our own little swamp and to exit the van you had to step out into 4 inches of water.

It was a short stop where we visited a couple of wineries, did some tastings and sampled some cheese.  Also visited the local chocolate factory where the boys got to make their very own large white chocolate freckle.
