Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Wilmington 12 May 2006

Our anniversary today – married 33 years! Had a look around Orroroo in the morning and found the local hospital auxiliary stall just set up in the very brisk morning breeze. It was SO like the monthly World Vision stalls at Mayflower. Heather stocked up on home made fig, mulberry jams, jubilee cake and wild peach/apple pies for our trip. Also found some great antique bargains. (65% off).
In the afternoon we drove to Melrose which is the oldest settlement in the Flinders Ranges. Had an interesting chat to an old farmer who has sheep and Hereford cattle Camped at Wilmington for the night and set up a lovely camp fire and cooked tea on same. Very romantic! Getting better at bush cooking! After a few drinks started on the marshmallows. Knocked up the neighbours to join in. They hushed us up and snuck out at 8 pm as they thought their boys (10 yr old and 6yr old twins) were asleep. About ½ hr later the boys were up having a wow of a time with my BIG bag of marshmallows. They were experts at it and had to be dragged to bed. Areal Nanna event!
