23.10.2011 - 23.10.2011
Relaxing day today, drove to Mannum and spent time looking up and down the main street. Funny little place, nothing much happens until after 12. Being Sunday and a strong Lutheran influence may have something to do with it.
We crossed the Murray both ways on the ferries. For some reason there are two side by side so there isn't long to wait.
Some interesting buildings and some really magnificent homes but generally the real estate is cheaper than some of the other places we've visited.
Back to Murray Bridge via Mypolonga, a pocket of fruit and grape growing properties but no real 'village' that we could find.
By the time we returned to the caravan, the cars that were parked here were clearing out. By about 1400 they were all gone.
Packed up the gear in advance of a threatening rain storm. Chances are that it won't eventuate but it isn't worth putting it off and getting soaked.
Tomorrow we're off to Victor Harbor, less than 100 Km so it won't take long !!
Some of my scribble is probably a bit boring and uninteresting but it is that or nothing. We are not the energetic youngsters we were when we were here last. That was in 1968/69, a very long time ago.
Stay well and travel safely.
Cheers … Tony
