Lake Victoria was the final stop for the day.

Back at the Oasis there were still things to see and do.

Temporary Tourist – 50 kms from Wentworth

We had an invitation to visit a sheep station and thought this was a good occasion to do it so off we went. I was a little worried that Crock 2 might find it difficult travelling about 400 kms in the back seat of a car with a Westie sitting beside her. I needn’t have been concerned.

 

Fergus has found a new friend.

Our first stop was at Karoonda, where the silos were painted in June this year so the colours are beautifully vivid.

As we drove closer to the River Murray the agriculture changed to irrigated crops.

We made a wee stop at Renmark then soon afterwards we were on a dirt road.

Arriving at our destination there were friends to meet and relaxing to do!
