Another fine and warm day. The nights and early mornings are quite cool. We left about 9.30 am to head for Ivanhoe and on to Wilcannia. There was very little traffic on the road, so it was easy to pull off the bitumen at lunch time. After lunch we have come up the Darling River to Mt Murchison where Ian Marr lives. We met Ian some years ago. He is an artist who specialises in the art of carving slate which he transports from South Australia. Consequently he invited us to stay on his property and camp on the Darling River. This is where we are this evening watching the very full and swift Darling River as it makes its way south. The Coolabah and Red Gum trees are wonderful to camp under.
