After the 2 nights at Echuca we went to Tocumwal where we again caught up with Diane and Bruce who were staying at Apex Beach but we opted to stay at Town beach as we needed the water to catch up on the washing. The border hopping was getting to us a bit as we were sometimes not sure which state we were in however no change in the time zones made it easier.
|Our riverside camp at Tocumwal|
We had a nice relaxing week at Tocumwal and I walked up to town most days to get the paper as it was a nice walk from the camp. We also had morning tea with Diane and Bruce who excelled themselves with Devonshire tea complete with jam and cream.

Some poeple may remeber that Jerilderie is famous for a Ned Kelly raid and a letter that he wrote. there was to be a reenactment of that incident about a week after we were there.
On our way back we came across "The Drop" which was where 2 irrigation canals intersected but one was lower than the other hence the drop. After wandering in NSW most of the day we crossed the river at Cobham and stopped at the Big Strawberry farm but were very dissapointed on their offerings. Just got some jam befroe crossing back into NSW and home.
Our next leg along the river was to be the last fro a little while. We found Forges beach about 8 klm from Yarrawonga to be a nice setting and really wnjoyed our few days there.
