Holidays ...

Greetings from Lakeside Country Club in Numurkah, north central Victoria.

We have been having a wonderful time here, the weather has been great. The photo above is of the lake in the resort. It is a gorgeous place. Chicky and her best friend Chooky are having a ball ... I'll be surprised if they aren't waterlogged by the end of this stay, they are spending so much time in the pool.

Yesterday we went to Cobram and Yarrawonga (briefly), and explored the Murray River between those two towns. I loooooooove the Murray, and as a younger woman, spent many holidays camped on it's banks (gosh, that makes me sound old !!).

On Sunday we went to Echuca, also on theMurray, and took a fascinating paddlesteamer cruise on the Pevensey, which was used in the movie/mini-series All The Rivers Run, and was known therein as The Philadelphia. A great day.

We have also spent some time just relaxing here at the resort.

I will share more with you, along with some photos, when I return home at the end of next week.

Looking forward to tomorrow ... lunch with Merle, Jeanette & Gwen in Shepparton.

Hugs to you all.

Take care,

Beautiful areas depicted in your pics, Connie. I hear you all had a lovely time at lunch with Merle. I wonder if anyone got a word in! ;)

how lucky you are... you live in a country where you can holiday in midwinter and STILL the weather looks fine!!

Hi I passed here from Merle's blog... can't specifically recall whether I've been here or not - are you the same Connie in the photograph (in her latest post?) ...?

Hi Connie, sounds like you're having a lovely time. Good for you.

I loved that series "All the Rivers Run", but I like Nancy Cato's books anyway.

That's a lovely photo of you and the other ladies on Merle's blog. Sounds like you had a lovely time.
