Back Home from Camping Trip
We're back home again! It feels good to be back home again even though we had a really great time on our trip. We drove Westward through the Snowies and along the length of the Murray River through to Adelaide (via the Barossa) then back home again along the Great Ocean Road with a stop in Melbourne on the way. I thought I would post a few pictures, it was really fun and peaceful to be out camping underneath the stars again. I saw my first koalas in the wild as well as my first emus. We were able to see the stars reflecting on the Murray River at night, walked through the rain forests and tasted wine at the vineyard cellar doors in the Barossa. Most of the way we drove through country that is really suffering from drought, which at least we don't feel so alone anymore after seeing that it is well widespread.
And of course we stopped at some wonderful quilt stores along the way! Sweet husband is quite understanding about this--he usually would head to the bakery while I was busy browsing! We also looked at the Gammill long arm in Melbourne and I am VERY excited... I can't wait! Soon!
