Romet Wigrey bike in Echuca

Lots of flowers like these on the roadside

A couple of birds scurry out of the way in Moama

For a few days my wife Christine and I have been staying in Moama, up near Echuca on the Murray River.  I chucked my Polish Romet Wigrey (try saying it without smiling) in the car for a bit of pootling around town and managed to visit almost every op shop in Echuca and Moama during the week.  Managed to pick up a few interesting things and it was quite good fun if a little quiet.  Cadells where we stayed is right on the Murray and its possible to sit on a lounge chair, watch a lazy boat drift by, drink a beer, feed the local very varied bird life, and cook a barbecue meal all at the same time.  Most of the patrons were a bit older and very harmless. 

One day was quite hot, the wind blowing the trees and branches around and making everyone talk about bushfires.  My Georgette Heyer novel blew off the table and about 10 pages escaped into the breeze.  Found a few of them right away and another one was handed in by a neighbour, but with several pages remaining missing it was a bit of a write off.

We visited my Dad's cousin Mary during my stay, more on that next post.
