Bright, Northeast Victoria

As we have an appointment on Monday 1st February to see Darryl at Murray Valley Motorhomes in Strathmerton to get a quote on a few things that need looking at in the motorhome I reluctantly leave Danni and Numurkah and head north.

We were planning on going to Dead River Beach on the Murray at Cobram, but it’s so hot and as there are 2 weeks before Daryl does the work we decide to keep on driving in air-conditioned comfort and head over to Bright were it’s a bit greener and, hopefully, cooler.
 Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Omelettes for dinner - really roughing it!  The dogs are ever hopeful

There’s a lovely walk on the far side of the creek - the dogs love walking along the shady lane

On Thursday night (4th February), along with the rest of Victoria, we had tremendous thunderstorms and tropical downpour of rain here - as you can see from the photo below I'm camped very close to the water's edge.  At around 2am I was shining the torch out the window just to make sure that the creek hadn't broken it's banks!  It did come up quite a bit higher but fortunately didn't flood into the campsite.
