August 10th

We left Loxton early this morning after a quiet night. The road south through Pinaroo and Ouyon and on to Nyah on the Murray River was largely lined with beautiful Eucalypt mallee trees...I just love the shape of them with their many trunks. The broad green acres of wheat was an enjoyable change as well, after the grey of the Nullarbor. We stopped in Ouyon especially to buy a Vanilla Slice..very decadent..particularly for me!

We made the final change of time to our watches now we are back in Victoria. The main thing I have noticed for the first time for 2 months is the chill air of winter with some sharp showers coming from the south west. We even got caught in one as we walked, this evening, along the edge of Lake Boga where we are camped. It is a clean and fresh park looking over Lake Boga, but with the traffic of the Murray Valley Highway noisily going by. Lake Boga is close to our Mystic Park Vineyard so we are familiar with this area.

Our trip today was 399 km. Tomorrow will be the very last leg of Safari 2015. We expect to arrive at Milawa mid afternoon.
