July 17th.

We awoke to thick fog, so were unable to walk as planned. The day has been cloudy as we have travelled through the cropping country of the Wimmera. Good rains appear to have fallen as there is water by the road and lying in the paddocks. Great stuff for bogging a vehicle.
We have seen several varieties of wattle in bloom. The Cootamundra wattle is dominant with its full blooms of yellow. They are probably in bloom around the North East as well.
We enjoyed our lunch in the Recreation Reserve at  Dimboola which is a well cared for town. A pink lake was interesting as was the paddock of cultivated salt bush. It was good to meet Graeme and Jo at West Print Maps in Nhill.
Tonight we are camped south of Kaniva in the Little Desert National Park.
