Like a Rollingstone, Day 4 – Balranald

Day 4, 13/5/2016, Friday, Balranald, Blue skies nothing but blue skies, 21 degrees

It’s only a short two block walk into town along the riverbank. There are detailed story boards telling the war experiences of locals but I can’t read them all and keep up with the others as well. A young lady tells us to visit the Homebush Hotel out of town, they’re a friendly bunch here. The visitor centre is exceptionally good and they have an RV park out the back with toilets, showers and drinking water. That has us nomads all nodding with pleasure. We do quite a bit more chatting in the sun and walk across the swing bridge and through the forests of the flood plains. The river is home to kookaburras and parrots and we spot yellow rosellas of the South Australian variety and uncommon in our neck of the woods. We cook potatoes in the fire pit and eat dinner on the riverbank. What more could one ask for?
