Ayson's Reserve. Vic

Here we are parked up for the Duration
We had quite a lovely camping experience over the 5 day Easter Break after we left Deniliquin.  We were joined by lots of fellow campers, die hard fisherman and families on the banks of the Campaspe River at our old haunt Ayson’s Reserve in Elmore Victoria.

We have spent many a night around the campfire solving the world’s problems. 
Anna, Me, Bill, Geoff, Julie and Peter around the campfire early evening
 Last night we made a damper in the camp oven.  1 Can of beer and 3 ½ cups of self raising flour and added a few cranberries and sultanas and it was delicious served with butter and drizzled with golden syrup.  It was cooked to perfection.  For dinner we had “toasties” in jaffle irons cooked in the coals. 

The beautiful Campaspe River
Most nights we throw a few spuds wrapped in alfoil into the coals, and grill some chops etc over the fire.  It is definitely a very pleasant pastime enjoyed with the company of Peter and Julie, and new friends Anna and Geoff from McKay in Queensland. 
More Campers
We will be here a few weeks as I am waiting for my phone to be sent down from Melbourne, it decided to play up in Deniliquin, so we had to take it to Bendigo to be sent away for repairs.  It is less than 12 months old.  Russell and Hedy left us on Monday for the home paddock, and we hope to catch up with them again soon. 
 Last Wednesday we met up with our friends from WA, Bob and Dtwana, in Melbourne for lunch and a quick visit.  We travelled by train into Melbourne and returned by coach.  It was a very pleasant 2 ¾ hour journey through picturesque countryside.  They drove over to Elmore from Buxton on Sunday with their grandies and joined us for a few hours here, we dined with them for lunch followed by our now infamous vanilla slice.  It was lovely to catch up with them again.
More Happy Campers Bill espied on his early morning chats around the camps (5am)
 Tonight is the Royal Wedding of Kate & William, so I guess everyone’s eyes will be glued to the television.  When we leave here we will travel to Swan Hill and up to Mildura, then into Renmark in South Australia, gradually making our way home. 
Talk again soon
