Well after a very wet early start, 5.13am to be exact we headed off on our "journey". Our plan was to stay in Horsham the 1st night however after a quick breakfast stop at macca's on the ring road and a flying visit to Nanny Olwyn & Pa Brian in Gordon (Ballarat) we arrived in Horsham at about 111am! After a quick game of tiggy in the park, re-fuel the car & loo stop we decided to push on. We crossed the border into Sth Aust at exactly 1pm Liam was fast asleep although he didn't miss much in fact if you blinked you would have missed it, we stopped just past Bordertown in a roadside stop for lunch & cuppa in the van and hit the road again to see how far we could get. Kids did some homework sheets & watched some DVD's & started to get a bit niggly at about 3pm so we looked ahead on the map & planned to get to Murray Bridge. Another re-fuel in Tailem Bend & we arrived at the caravan park just after 4. Thankfully we had some pasta sauce Bill put some pasta on in the camp kitchen (I'm going away more often if he continues cooking!) we had an early dinner oh & a nice bottle of chilled Moscato (medicinal for sleep) & now we are all tucked up in our home away from home ready for our first night......Good night everyone! Heading for a scenic drive through Hanhndorf tomorrow then heading to "Clare" for the night then onto Port Augusta (thats the vague plan anyway!!) Mayhem with the Mackay Mob!
