June 14th

We have had a very busy and tiring few days...we are now on holidays. The three days in NZ went without a hitch. A very sad funeral but we are so pleased that we made the special effort for Anneshka and her family. Cynthia has helped us enormously as well as our 2 grandsons but now we have changed speed and on our way.
We left Milawa about 9.20 this morning. The day began with early voting for the Federal Elections. Geoff and Eileen Dinning met us in Corowa . From there we have headed north and to the Murrumbidgee River and followed it down stream to Hay, arriving about 400 p.m.
We drove into the camping area on the River at Hay and the first people we met were our very good friends Beth & John Harrison. What an amazing coincidence. I did not even know that they were headed this way. Ken & Joan Ellis (my brother and sister-in-law) will meet us this evening for dinner. What a unexpected party.
The day has been interesting in that most areas all the way have had rain so the paddocks are green. Cotton is being harvested and secured in large plastic rolls. A very attractive drive. Today the temperature has risen above 24 deg so I was really too warm. However the evening is closing in and will be quite cold I think.

A winter morning from our home
