My day started with a lovely sunrise.
Amazing, I’m the first one up!
After packing up and taking photos we were ready to head for home.
Time for goodbyes.
Our stop at Renmark was a little longer this time.
An astonishing floating conglomeration of objects.
There were Silkie bantams walking about on deck.
Sidewheeler, “The Industry”.
“Mrs Chookman” was an excellent musician with an astonishing repertoire.
Houseboats moored along the riverbank.
The Murray River Princess, a paddlesteamer, does cruises on the river.
After Renmark it was time for a little play at the Monash Adventure Playground. It’s very different from the original which was designed probably more for adults than kids, but insurance costs etc has made such an Adventure Park impossible these days. For those who never experienced the original this is a fun place to play for a while.
An artistic version of a log bridge.
Exciting for some, stress inducing for others!
There was a mini-stop at Loxton so I could get some photos of the pole sculptures.
Beautiful Gazanias have established themselves in many places.
On to Karoonda for something to eat before we investigated the Pioneer Village.
Buildings have been brought from various sites.
Not all Post Offices looked the same in the old days.
An original “homestead”.
Inside the “Homestead”.
Old wagon in amongst the Gum Trees.
And now we’re back home again.

Love the river pics. Also love the old post office and houses. 👍
I can’t imagine how they survived Summers in those corrugated iron buildings.
lovely sculptures, and the floating artistic chooks etc.
Gabe chatted to “Mr Chookman”. It’s an amazing craft but I’m not sure I’d like to travel in it without a lifejacket. The Silkies seemed quite content roaming around.
