Spent a few days in Echuca. Depending on who you believe there were once 76 pubs & 40 brothels in town. Now there are only 9 pubs & an unknown number of brothels.
Some of the Paddleboats
Dinner with the girl for her birthday at the Mill. It was a Flour mill built in 1881. Now a very nice restaurant.
The churches are Gothic & grand.
This was a Wesleyan Church built in 1869. It has been converted to a wonderful house. It’s up for auction if you are interested.
We have spent the last week houseboating on the Murray River on Indulgence with this motley crew.
Weather was OK with only a couple of cold, rainy days. It was serendipity that these were the days we were stuck on a mudbank. With these Captains what do you expect 🙂
The girls just kept partying. No major tsuris.
Sunset on the Murray.
Emmylou had a go at pulling us off but didn’t succeed. We finally got off with some help from some friendly locals.
Billy was onboard with us for the whole week & was better behaved than most of the humans.
We spent our last day at Echuca getting a ride with a real Captain on the PS Pevensey.
Also had enough time to have a look at the Holden Museum.
New set of boots on the truck. Got nearly 60,000 kms out of the old ones.
Next stop – Tassie.
