Cycling the High Country Rail Trail with Lake Hume in the background.
The bridge that spans Sandy Creek at the end of Lake Hume is quite an interesting structure, using the original rail bridge pylons to create a visual theme that is meant to represent the movement of the train and reflect the rolling hills surrounding.

Not a good pic of the bridge, but it does give you an idea of how long it is. Quite impressive for a rail trail.

Kayaking on the Murray at Albury Wodonga.
Kayaking selfie – it’s hard to get good photos when you can’t get out of the kayak to take them.

The tree beside our campsite – that was home to a koala.
Now isn’t that just the cutest?
We rested by the river here for awhile. Nathalia.

The mound behind was, as they say, ‘subtle’. Interesting to see and to think of the history behind this spot. Barmah National Park
The cut-out on this tree was to made by the indigenous people for a canoe, a few hundred years ago.
A flock of spoonbills on Lake Barmah – not flustered at all by our presence in the kayak.
On the Murray River section of Barmah National Park. You can see how narrow the band of trees on the opposite bank is – that’s how close Lake Barmah is to the river.
Getting better at selfies. And no Steve isn’t paddling with a branch – just holding that so we don’t get swept down the river while I take the photo. Murray River, Barmah National Park.
