Bright to Kyffins Reserve

My friend Pam, who is also spending a couple of years travelling, joined us for a few days at Bright - Pam is returning from a trip up north to visit her family in Cobram - it was good to catch up with her again.

After leaving Bright we spent a couple of nights at Yarrawonga Caravan Park restocking with water, cleaning, and washing clothes, with the very occasional visit to Nosh Deli Cafe - my favourite spot in Yarrawonga. The only sad part was they don’t seem to have “puppacinos” anymore - when they first opened they used to offer Skye a doggy bowl with warm, frothy, skim milk with chocolate sprinkles.

Our Campsite on the Murray River at Yarrawonga

 Onwards to New South Wales ....... a very long trip....... at least 7kms to Kyffins Reserve on Lake Mulwala. This is a great free-camping spot - very large, flat (Laurie is very thankful) and right on the lakefront.

Whilst sitting inside on the computer I glanced outside and was entranced by this view

Skye has had a word in my ear and she’s said she doesn’t think it’s right that Timmy (Laurie’s dog) has his own blog http://www.dogdogs.com.au/ and she never gets any say in mine. So I’ve decided to give her a “voice”.  Skysie’s input will appear in italics.

Oh boy, oh boy now this blog will get some class! I’m having a great time - lots of visiting other camper’s barbeques, sniffing, paddling in creeks and running FREE. This place is the best, it’s officially an off-lead exercise area so I can come and go as I please. Poor Tim, he’s a bit of a larrikin and can’t be trusted to come back so he’s restricted to walking with his Driver - to make him feel better I accompany them on their walks - I usually return with them but a couple of times Annie has had to call me - I always come then - she might have some more delicious watermelon for me.

Christmas is over so Timmy and I decide to have a tug-a-war with Santa Bear
