A SOCIAL WEEK

THE WEATHER HAS COOLED and it's so good to just go for walks, do things around the house and be comfortable.

i've had coffees down at the new riverboat cafe friday saturday and sunday, also lunch yesterday with friend rob and on friday with fran and mike on their way to renmark.
I've blocked out march on my airbnb diary so i'm feeling freed up and ready to head off on a week road trip down to melbourne, gippsland and mornington peninsula visiting friends.

my resident kanga,
lovely but not so
popular when he
eats my grapevines


Welcome visitor - Roger and son, trimmed all my trees' dead branches, chopped down dead ones, sawed up smaller branches on
a huge half a box tree that fell down. everything looks so much
better
 on the way back from mildura - lake hawthorn

 on my own riverbank

the wrens are getting adventurous

sue and i had a leisurely wine on friday night, a gorgeous cool
breeze and pelicans on the river




these greedy buggars
hovered overhead
eyeing off our
dry bickies and cheese



yesterday was the Blessing of the Rivers, a non political gathering of people to ask for care and integrity and commitment from those making decisions about the future of the rivers and the murray darling basin.  i took photos for the local paper


 people poured 
water from far 
away back into
the darling in a
symbolic gesture.
shane howard
even had water
from ireland.
