Breaky on the terrace & a slow start. Lots of farewells to out very generous hosts. As they were about to drop us off about 15 km from our destination, we saw 2 pelegrinos. Would have been embarrassing to get out of the car & start walking then.
So They dropped us off at pellegrue, which meant only a 6 km walk hardly even a walk. Quite hot, no wind thru vines, sunflower fields & forests. Easy! The refuge is not open till 4, so ...

... and we were sailing down the banks of the Murray River.
The Port is being restored, however you would never know because it is now in its final stages and the tours within the buildings are always bustling with tourists.
On the day of departure, luckily it was Market Day at the Echuca Moama Market which is located at the Soundshell Gardens and features collectables, fresh produce, clothing and for the kids - pony rides.
