meandering along the murray

Sitting outside on a warm evening on the north bank of the Murray River. The river forms the NSW/Victoria border so we can throw a stone across states.

Lovely spot, another winner from our camping bible, with free electric barbecue facilities and very impressive composting toilets ( easy to become public convenience fixated when you travel with a chemical toilet and the less you use it the less frequently you have to face the grizzly task of emptying it ) .

Below the view from our kitchen window this evening.

Ness spotted an azure kingfisher, and we have just returned from a night walk in search of wombats and barking owls ( heard, not seen ) and we had a great encounter with a little southern boobook ( a little speckled owl ).

We plan to spend the next few days following the Murray. Each town has a twin town in the neighbouring state joined by a bridge across the river, so we will be state hopping regularly.
