....as we have been away on a road trip for the past week travelling around our lovely State of Victoria, well at least parts of it. We even ventured interstate on occasion when we crossed the mighty Murray river in different places. No 3 son got some 'L' hours up doing most of the driving. He did a great job. I got to sit in the back and do some work on my second Swan Lake border. About 3/4 of the dollies is done, including arms and heads. Strangely sitting in the back I don't get car sick but in the front seat I can't even look at the road map without getting nauseous.
We made our way up to Mildura via stops at Euroa, Yarrawonga, Albury (across the border), Rutherglen, Corrowa, Echuca then made our way home passing through Stawell and staying two nights at Halls Gap, not far from Stawell.
We got beautiful mandarins from Mildura that were just off the trees, tasted wines in Rutherglen and visited some beautiful patchwork shops. Spotted, I might add, by Hub.
We didn't take too many pics but you knew there were going to be some coming, right?
