What I did
SPC Ardmona Factory Outlet

Flag of Australia  , Victoria,
Monday, March 18, 2013

It was a long climb to Yea after leaving Healesville in the fog along the Dandenongs again, but very picturesque yet again.

We stopped in a park at Yea for morning tea right next to a beautiful old home that had just been sold and Doug even took a photo of us here especially for Leigh so he knows we are really moving along and not just making this whole story up.

Once again we arrived at Shepparton around lunch time and after we set up went for a walk around the town centre checking out the shops yet again.  The tourist information only had two main attractions one of which was a Children's Adventure Playground - we had to check this out, thinking we may get some new ideas for the All Ages Playground but these swings etc were all pretty tame - not very adventurous by KA standards. 

The second attraction was the SPC Ardmona factory outlet - well Doug thought he was in heaven with the prices of all the bags of sweets and Sue was equally excited about the food prices but disappointed at not being able to make good use of them - limited space in caravan and car.  Couldn't justify the savings here and now.

After arriving back at the caravan we walked down the road for some freshly picked Roma tomatoes but they were being sold by the 10kg box - after some deliberation the young fellow selling them let us have 2kg - don't know what we'll do with 2kg of tomatoes before they ripen too much.  This young dude said to us when he came out of the house with our change just realised I've got my pants on back to front" This should have been difficult as they were dress pants with a fly - I suppose you had to be there - but it gave us something to laugh about besides ourselves.

Haha! I would have laughed too (at the man with no room to sit.)

You could try maybe taking photos of each other... just a thought. :)
