I plan to make a blog entry while at each camp. This should make for easier reading.
Our first night was spent at Wood Duck campsite between Taminick and Chesney Vale. The camp site was open forest and very peaceful. We did have a restless night which I put down to the ‘first night out’ and the fact that we got rather cold toward morning. Thankfully we have a wonderful heater in the van.
The laugh of
a kookaburra welcomed our day as well as magpies and mud larks.
We left camp at about 9.00am under a clear blue sky. Firstly we travelled north, then turned west at the Boweya school. It was surprising to see Nick Derrick attending a working Bee at the School.
We have had a long day of driving a total of 527 km, crossing the Murray River at Tocumwal and travelling along the Murray River in NSW through Finley, Deniliquin and Balranald
We are now camped near Monak at the Bottle Bend Turn-off. It is a flat and dry area and not far from the Murray River.
The trucks on the Sturt Highway did disturb us a little.
