Day 201 – Sunday, 11 December 2022 

We slept in this morning, and it was a lovely luxury. We then proceeded to laze about for most of the rest of the day, with the air conditioner going since just before 11:00am. 

Burra is a lovely town filled with lots of history. We are determined to come back and stay a few days – when it is cooler, says Russ. 

We both had a chat with mum who is sounding much more settled. We both told her we were looking forward to seeing her as soon as we can get across to Benalla once we are home. 

Brett had a good party with his friends who are all turning up again today for a BBQ lunch to celebrate Jimmy’s birthday – Brett’s mate, and a thoroughly lovely guy. 

I took most of the afternoon to get the diary entries in order and onto the computer and Russ watched some movies. 

As much as we have enjoyed every moment of our journey it will be good to get home once again. Hopefully the flood waters will not cause too much hassle around the Riverina area and Lake Cullulleraine. We will have to take the longer route to the airport at Mildura as parts of Merbein and most of Ranfurly Way are closed to traffic.
