21.11.2011 - 21.11.2011
Not that we had an intention of sleeping late, we were woken up at about 0530 by the raucous screeches of over 100 Corellas that had serenaded us last night. The trees along the river bank must have been their regular roosting place. They turned on an impressive display of formation flying as the sun was setting, before squabbling their way to their evening roosting.
So we were up and about quite early and took off for Wangaratta via Echuca, Shepparton and Benalla. Much cooler today, just a hint of breeze and light traffic made this leg of the trip quite pleasant. Arrived at the Painters Island Caravan Park just after 1000 and were told to take our pick of the sites. A vast difference to when we were here last when they needed a shoe-horn to fit us in.
After lunch, drove out to Markwood to visit the Paolas and stayed there for dinner. They are such a generous family we feel embarrassed to have so little to give them. It was well and truly dark by the time we got back to the caravan.
Stay well and travel safely.
Cheers … Tony
