On Holy Thursday we left Melbourne and drove to Echuca (“Eh Eh Echuca! The town that sounds like a sneeze!” Strangely, my suggested slogan has never been taken up by the local tourist association) Dee and John showed us round their growing and very beautiful resort, Moama on Murray. Every man and his dog was in town to enjoy water sports and camping on the Murray River, so for most of the weekend we just hid out at their place, talking and relaxing. The Easter Bunny found us and I had chocolate for breakfast ☺ Echuca is an historic town on the Murray with paddle boat steamers, ye olde blacksmiths shop etc recreating the history of the pioneering days when produce and goods were transported along the Murray River to the early settlers.
