Barooga

Thursday 2nd November, (Barooga).

As Narrelle would say: – only 23 more sleeps (until the wedding).

We have had a couple of restful days because it has rained again. Linda has written in a postcard to the church at home that it is not our fault that it is flooded over here because it started before we arrived. This is because some members of her church are sure that every time we hook up the caravan it rains.

We are at this moment mostly packed and ready for a move tomorrow to Yarrawonga, our stay at Barooga was very interesting but the flood limited sightseeing. We must endeavour to return here one day when everything is back to normal.

We visited Shepparton on Tuesday because Linda wanted to visit the SPC factory, Campbellā€™s soup and others that are in the area. This is one area we must visit, maybe on our return to Melbourne from Albury-Wodonga. The SPC factory have a sales direct to the public store which is as cheap as. We could have bought heaps of foodstuff we will need, but unfortunately our limitation on space to store all that we considered buying prevented us from doing so.

I sincerely hope that the next place that we stay at has reasonable TV reception as up until now the reception in the Murray area has not been worth mentioning, I am wondering though whether or not it might have something to do with the fact that we have been staying on the NSW side of the river and the trees surrounding the river may limit signal reception.
