Photos – our trip along the Murray River

We saw and experienced so much travelling along the Murray River that it’s impossible to write about it all. So here are the photos. Enjoy

Murray River memories

There were a few things about the Murray River that I wasn’t expecting. And some that I should have. And some that were everything I could have wanted.

All the Rivers Run – our trip up the Murray River

For anybody who’s read All the Rivers Run, or seen the mini-series, a trip along the Murray is a must. Having decided that’s how we were travelling back from Adelaide to Sydney, we set off to start the trip at Swan Reach in South Australia, and drive up river until we turned off, up along …

Grey Fergies to the rescue at the Murray-Darling junction

Did you know the Grey Fergie saved Wentworth? No. Neither did I. I’m not sure if that’s bad marketing by the town of Wentworth, or if it’s something wrong with me. But Doc knew. Or perhaps that’s just him – after all, we do have a grey Fergie in our backyard!

A land of sweeping plains

After spending a lovely week with my family over Christmas, it was time to move one. We had to get back home, but via what route was the question. With just over a week to get home, we could take our time, and take in some of the countryside. We had the swag, with its …

The (muddy) road less travelled

  When Doc and I travel we like to steer clear of main highways as much as possible. Back roads are always prettier, less crowded, and you get to see much more of the country side. If we get lost – well, it’s all an adventure isn’t it. So on our journey along the Murray …

A road trip at Christmas

We’re having a different Christmas this year. Christmas is a big deal for me. Every year on Christmas Eve we all get together – my kids, Doc’s kids, their partners, and our grandchild – for a big family dinner. My kids usually stay the night and we get up early (or at least I do) …

I’m thinking of buying a small 4WD

I’m buying a new car (well, a new second hand one). After 5 years with my beloved Saab convertible I think it’s time for a change. I think. I really do love that car! But it’s not very practical when I have a lot of gear to cart around, and when I’m driving through fields …

How to burn a stump from the inside

On our last visit to the farm Doc decided to try out a trick he heard about burning a log from the inside. If there’s one thing we’re not short of on the farm, it’s old logs. So we got one that we had lying around for the campfire, stood it upright, cut grooves into …

Sunset, full moon and a big campfire

This is my favourite part of the day. I’m the only one up and it’s very peaceful. I’ve thrown a few twigs onto the remains of last night’s fire and brought that back to life. The coffee pot is sitting on the coals, there are crimson rosellas in the tree watching me, and a swallow …
