We sat the afternoon away seated soaking up the sunshine reading.
... finding that this camping business takes more organising than I thought, and that lists (yes, thank you Sonja) are actually useful. For someone that tends to "fly by the seat of her rather large pants" that's not easy to admit! Anyhow, We are really looking forward to our 3 days at the Echuca Riverboat Festival.
