a little trip away...

 just before Christmas we bought this!

 this was our first offical trip away...
below is a night visitor that I really didn't want!
apparently the people before us were feeding them....
they thought we were going to do the same, NOT!
 this gorgeous guy was very welcome....
he had a ball with all the grubs and bugs he was catching
 a visit to the Holden Museum was on the agenda...
some great old cars, well worth the visit.

 can't go to Echuca without a trip on one of these
 the tiny kitchen with everything right at arms length!
the historic wharf and 2 more very old paddlesteamers
part of the old mill that used to be on the site...
time for some of these....34 degrees every day we were there!
