Back on the road again

We lingered at Laurel Hill for a while to get the car serviced and a draw system put in the back, then down to Blowering Dam for a get together for Owen’s 60th birthday. We had great weather at the dam and were able to swim every day.  The day after we left it poured rain. We said goodbye to Bruce and Sue, Owen and Cath and headed for Shepparton again. We found lots of cows hanging around the parks.

We moved on to Tocumwal, a long 90klm drive to the Murray River. The caravan park is great and the town very friendly. We have a pool near our van and the river is a good 500 meters stroll with a path along the levy bank under the big gum trees along the river bank.

The 50th Multi Class Gliding Championships were on and at one time we counted over 20 gliders in one thermal circling over the town. Mark was so impressed he went up in a glider. There is a lot of history around Tocumwal regarding the airfield during the 2nd World War. It is a nice little town.
