We are camping travellers

"We are camping travellers" Zach has said this to quite a few people that we have meet on our travels and he's right. From Bendigo, we camped in a small country town called Ouyen, then we made our way to Mildura and had a cuppa with friends there.
We crossed the border into Sourh Australia and had to dispose of all our fruit and vegetables. In Renmark we bought some oranges from a stall by the side of the road, they are the best oranges I've had in years! We passed by the big orange in Berri, which unfortunately has closed down, but still we took a photo.
I'm loving South Australia, so many historic towns. I love all the old stone cottages and I love that so many are still being used, we have seen so many ruins as well. We took a random left and ened up at an old country pub, The Overland Corner Hotel, perfect place for an ice cream.
We ended up camping near The Murray in a town called Morgan. We checked out the old railway station, and walked around part of the town reading the plaques in front of the old buildings, though I think the highlight for Zach was being able to pet the pet goat at the petrol station.
I stopped so many times to get a photo of old windmills, I think Zach got sick of them, they are everywhere and so many look so rustic and quaint, I love it!
We drove past through such a pretty little town, it was Burra. And so chuffed I got a photo of the old homestead that is on the cover of Midnight Oil's album 'Diesel and Dust'
We drove through the windiest part of the world, I'm sure of it, it felt like my car was going to be blown away! Mount Bryan has a wind farm, one of the vanes is one display, I could believe how big it was!

I'm trying to load photos, but with difficulty, will try in the morning
