We set off for Adelaide with van in tow and spent the first night in Horsham in the western districts of Victoria, but unfortunately I've no photos of this part of the trip.
After leaving Horsham the following morning, we headed for Bordertown to stop off to see if my friend Judy was home, but alas, no answer. Next was a stop in Keith for lunch, then as we travelled on, a photo stop was found at Coonalpyn where there were some painted silos.
|The silos and the best photo I could get from the edge of the road.|
|A little about these silos.|
|An old bank building, long disused I think.|
|A lovely little church in the middle of town, which is relatively small.|
We finally arrived at the caravan park and had a little wander once we were set up. Not a caravan park we've used before and it was right under the flight path from the airport, which was noisy during the day, and luckily they have a curfew , so no noise through the night.
On our meander, we found this enormous old Moreton Bay Fig, so photos were a must. I remember as a child playing around the root systems of these trees in Centennial Park in Sydney, especially at my Dad's work Christmas picnics.

The next day before we needed to go to Glenelg for the quilt trunk show, which I was to attend at 7pm, we headed for the hills and opted for Gumeracha, where there is an almighty large rocking horse, toy factory and wildlife rescue park. We had a lovely few hours and without boring you too much, some photos follow. As you go into the park, you can purchase a small pack of animal pellets to feed the animals, so that was a must.
|Another lovely moment happened when I saw this little one laying behind the tree. It looked up, noticed I had food, stood up, ate some then hung on to my little finger. Oh so cute and these little ones made my day.|
