Holidays on the Mighty Murray

I was very lucky to be invited onto a Houseboat for lunch one day while on holidays on Mildura.
My friend and her family had 5 days just lazing on a houseboat.
It was peaceful, and a fantastic experience to "have a turn"

This is the life!

It is so nice to see the Murray full again after so many years of drought. I love Mildura as my dad originally comes from there so we spent many xmas' there while my grandparents were still alive.

Gorgeous photos Annie. Isn't it weird looking a the river when it's so high. Been so long since there has been that much water anywhere. Enjoy your holidays.

Sounds great......and loving that the water is flowing again.

The Murray full of water is a wonderful sight, and the green edging of grass is just the decoration it needs. May it stay that way for a long time. It must be such a lovely peaceful way to spend a few days.

Happy New Year to you and your family, Annie.
