With only 40 or so miles to do today we were very laid back about things. After 7 miles we came across 'Animal Farm Café’. I think normally we would pedal on by but we stopped and ordered a couple of big hot chocolates. They even had the Sunday papers on offer. Then we hit the Animal Farm. It was brilliant. Armed with a bag of sheep pellets, we quickly made friends with ducks, goats, sheep, cows, ostriches, donkeys, ponies and llamas. We loved it, a great Sunday hour.
The rest of the day was pretty straight forward. We followed a rolling gorge before turning off for St Arnaud where the valley opened up and we enjoyed some glorious flat roads. It was again a change of scenery and the last hour or so into St Arnaud was stunning.
St Arnaud did not disappoint either. The hostel we checked into was very cosy and after a quick walk down to the lake to try and spot native eels (negative) we stocked up in St Arnaud local store for a night in front of the fire.
Miles Cycled: 39 and for once we took our time
