20.11.2011 - 20.11.2011
Up early and out the gate by 0630 (South Australia time) an impressive landscape of orchards, vineyards and crops. Drove into Victoria and on through Mildura and then crossed over to NSW and remembered to adjust to Eastern Time ( add 30 minutes). On the road to Euston saw a few groups of emus, looked like Dad and some juveniles, no photos, too hard to stop.
Crossed back into Victoria at Robinvale and started to feel the effects of the strong Southerly wind. Pushed on to Kerang and figured that 5 hrs 30 min on the road was enough. Pulled into the caravan park, unhooked and drove into town for some provisions – we had used up all fresh fruit before crossing into Victoria.
Kerang has an extensive shopping centre but there's not much activity on a Sunday Afternoon. We found a Safeway (Woolworths) supermarket and spent enough to qualify for a 15 cent discount on fuel. The strange thing is that the town doesn't have a Woolworths/Caltex fuel outlet, it does have a Coles/Shell gas station but no Coles supermarket. That IS strange !!
We're only here for the one night and intend to make Wangaratta tomorrow, about four days ahead of the original schedule.
Stay well and travel safely.
Cheers … Tony
