Another grey day beckoned, so we jumped on the car and went for a short drive to see the lock, but unfortunately it wasn't accessible due to a 12 week maintenance program. The water levels were way down as a consequence, but there was a nice park to walk around before a late lunch.
We found a nice cafe that let us sit outside with the boys, and had a scrumptious meal of pasta and risotto. It wasn't until afterwards that it clicked with me that it was Stefano's Cafe of "The Gondola on the Murray" ABC series. We headed back to the caravan park to do washing, and Paul set up a fire in the fire pit. When 15kg bags of timber from the CP were only $5, we didn't exactly ration it!
