Echuca / Moama

Friday 27th,( Echuca / Moama).

After walking around and having a good look about Echuca it is not hard to see that one could occupy oneself very easily visiting all the exhibitions on display. This town with all its beauty and things to do, all said and done is really a tourist centre and all are taking advantage of it. One could spend a small fortune as a tourist.

We have had a good time and seen quite a lot of the area and have had inklings that this could even be an area that we could settle down, but then how often, in how many places are we going to have these feelings.

We are wondering at home how many people think that we are actually tied up in the weather problems in the area. Some places are affected by flooding after all the rain we have had and some caravan parks are actually evacuating vans, but we personally have not been adversely affected.

After enjoying our week in Echuca/Moama today was time to move on. We are now camped at Barooga, about 100k east of Echuca and just over the border in NSW across from Cobram.

Linda will finally get her chance to go to a show, as our travels have caused us to miss all shows that have been or were going to be held in the area that we stayed. This weekend is the weekend for the Cobram show and she is very determined to attend, which could be interesting as this show should be about the same size as the Longford show that we used to sometimes go to at home.
